August Bits

It’s spring!  It’s spring!  It’s spring!  As much as I love layering up, one can get quite sick of it after a while, and now all I long for are breezy blouses with lightweight chinos and sandals or espadrilles~~~  We’re still quite a bit away from such weather, but it’s pretty uplifting to see flowers blooming and the slight rise in temperature.  I had a terrible flu the last two weeks – now I know for sure that I’m getting older – my body does not seem to be able to spring back as easily after a sickness…or maybe it’s just a really terrible virus.  Haha, anyway, spring can heal anything methinks.

Dreamhouse Pins

At the moment, my dream house would look like this – surrounded by trees & mountains, walls covered with climbing ivy, big beautiful windows that let in amazing sunlight, white & wood interiors, simple luxuries, and I also wouldn’t mind a whimsical-manicured garden.  Here’s to dreaming~
