Last Saturday we invited one of our friend for lunch and she had the most beautiful bouquet of hydrangeas! The “pompoms” are just huge and have a magnificent purple colour ! Our friend felt a little bit sorry saying that unfortunately they don’t last very long! But it does not matter because I am going to enjoy them as they are NOW! And this is a thing I am not very good at in my life I must admit: ENJOY NOW! EMBRACE THE PRESENT MOMENT!
I like to plan, to organize, to prepare in advance, etc… and I think a lot about the future (which is not a bad thing) but I have a tendency to forget the present! It is like I am always living in the future!
I need to learn to be content and satisfied with what I have now! I want to enjoy everyday, small things, now while I still have dreams for the future!
I am not where I want to be yet but I want to enjoy the journey on my way to the final destination!
What’s about you?
First I had two cups of coffee…
Then I had lunch with a cold glas of white wine….
And finally I really enjoyed a refreshing soda as it was very warm!
Le Château de Cheverny is definitely my favorite Château de la Loire. It is not impressive by its size but elegant and refined. The façade is not too loaded with ornaments compare to other châteaux. The interior as well as the gardens are very romantic! Definitely worth a visit!
I have “a thing” for palm trees! When I visit an exotic place I take a lot of pictures of them! I love the sound and movements of palm leaves when it is windy. I love the way they look at sunset…. well in other words I just find them beautiful!
So I decided to ” play” with black ink and paint some palm trees!
For the love of palms!
The outfit of this month focuses on one single piece of clothes: a vintage blue leather skirt. I bought it in a second-hand shop and I like it a lot! It is simple and elegant but with a small original detail which is the way it is draped in front!
