{have an enchanting weekend + sunday links}


. . . the midst of a lovely weekend filled with long dinners and late nights and a few world cup festivities as well, and holding my own in dresses and heels, a glass of champagne amidst a sea of pints . . . also hoping to find time for the important things — for handwritten letters on elegant stationery, e-mails to old friends and long distance telephone calls, for bouquets of roses and morning cups of coffee and most of all, a little time together . . .

thanks so much for always taking a few moments to visit and say hello, for all the fun tweets, warm thoughts and wonderful comments — wishing you a positively enchanting weekend . . .

hope it’s beautiful where you are,

  • Sounds like a wonderful weekend to me—perfect, actually!

    I’m crossing my fingers that the sun will decide to stay, as our plants, and especially the large mock orange, are so beautiful, but the blooms look droopy and sad… also, I cannot wait to visit some of these links. Thank you so much for linking my hotel post :)
