Flowers for your Friday

I'm a sucker for hydrangeas...

Seriously? Is it Friday again already? August is flying by far too quickly for my liking. Before I know it, summer vacation will be over and we'll be back to the hectic routine of work and school and meetings {oh! so many meetings...}

I want to savour the summer we have left, to bask in it while I still can. I need to remember my manifesto! And that is why this weekend I will be: packing a picnic and taking my kids to the beach, why we'll be getting together with friends for a fondue party {you can eat cheese when you've decided to be a vegetarian, right?} and staying up late, drinking wine. It's why we'll be going for a walk around the lake to pick blackberries, and why I'll be sitting outside in the sun with a good book and a cold drink while the kids construct forts from blankets on the lawn. It's why I'm going to paint my toenails a sparkly pink and admire them while I wander barefoot around the house, why I'll eat watermelon and watch Dirty Dancing and reminisce about the summers of my youth, and maybe have a little impromptu dance party while I'm at it! It's why I will do my damnedest not to look ahead 3 weeks, but instead to live in the moment.

What will you be doing this weekend? And do you have any goals or plans you'd like to achieve before autumn arrives?

  1. Very pretty! I work this weekend as usual =-p

  2. Oh, that sounds PERFECT! I just made plans to go on a fried-clam adventure this weekend. I can't wait!

  3. Those flowers are lovely. I can't believe it's Friday again either1 I love when the work week flies by, but not when summer does!

    Enjoy your fondue! Of coruse cheese can still be eaten by vegetarians :)

    This weekend I'll be shooting another wedding and then going to Ikea on Sunday!

  4. Some cheeses are fine for vegetarians, but a few aren't - just check the wrapper.


Yay! I love comments.
