{happy monday + à bientôt}

. . . while it may be too soon for late afternoons on ocean waves, writing from a beautiful hotel room in a charming city, near the close of an adventurously spontaneous weekend get-away of baguettes & brioche, velvet & valet parking, moody cafés & starlit walks, and most of all, stolen glances and a little romance . . .

à bientôt &

How wonderful a weekend you've had! Bravo! These photos remind me of a romantic adventure itself. Ah, to be swept into a novel dressed in billowing white awaiting your true love sailing the dangerously breathtaking high seas.

Well, here is still very cold and the Ocean (sea in my case) is a dream for now, if we talk about summer. But this does not stop me to plan and have nice weekends. In fact, this weekend I will go to the most beautiful city I have ever seen in my life: Venice!

Pls visit my blog next week and you'll see some pics.

What is not too love! Both feminine and chic. And a little bit of folklore. And the sun. The sun, people! All lovely! xx Monika
