{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,
