I would love to tell you that my absence has been due to some fabulous trip abroad, or here on my own continent for that matter.
I would love to say that I've had so many social engagements that I couldn't possibly pull together a post, or even slip in a tweet, but the truth is I've been busy with life. Busy with laundry, busy with yard work, busy with work (lots of work), busy with my family, busy with puppy dogs, busy watching amazing athletes...you know just living life.
A simple existence that allows me to pick blueberries fresh from the field or roam favorite shops and pick up vintage ironstone that is crazed and yellowed through years of loving use. I've been a bit of a recluse this summer and I have to say that I'm kind of enjoying it, mostly because I know it won't last, just like the warm breezes that blow through each evening and make the heat seem a little more bearable this time of year.
Mr. Tide and I are planning a bit of a getaway, but we can't seem to decide where to go...Maine?...Colorado?...South Carolina? Our hearts long to be back in France, but our pocketbook and my lack of a current passport say otherwise.
So tell me, where would you go, what tiny town, big city, or special place would you direct me to. A place that you think everyone should see even once in their lifetime? Do tell...because we're at a bit of a loss as to which direction the wind should take us. And I'll even make you a deal...if we go to where you tell us to go, I will take a picture of that special place and send it to you on a lovely stretched canvas...assuming you like the picture of course!
And because it's been awhile since I posted a song, I thought you might enjoy this one. It's lovely and quite soothing to listen to when you are looking at travel sites and tearing your hair out as to where to venture...such problems to have, I suppose?!
