By Invitation Only: Dream Day..

Posted May 01, 2012 by Christina

I am sure that many of you could have imagined where my dream day would take me.. Paris of course.   This time with the Mr.  we have not been to Paris together for over 10 years and I think a day spent with him there would be just dreamy.  We would wake up to this view and have our Pain au chocolat for breakfast with a tall glass of juice.

We would then wander the palace and gardens at Versailles, where he would of course take me on a row boat on the water while I relaxed and we could chat (uninterrupted- this is a luxury).

We would then picnic on the grass with baguettes, fresh fruit, cheeses and wine.  Once full we would lay back and find shapes in the passing clouds.

After a relaxing train ride back to the city we would window shop and go into some of my favorites for a real treat- Astier de Villate and always something vintage and memorable.


A nice visit to Merci would be a great idea too.. maybe a little light reading while we have a pick me up in the cafe.

A little more shopping.

A before dinner snack with a great view of the rooftops of Paris.

Finally a beautiful view of the city at sunset from Tour Eiffel.

 What do you dream of?

Please take a moment to visit the other ladies and see what their dream days hold..

I love the shop windows and that red car out front. Such a pleasure to find each of us with such different thoughts on the common theme. This is the reason I love each one of you ladies belonging to “By Invitation Only” … all of you are so creative, and yet so different, this is what amazes me each month, and I LOVE IT !!

Lost in Provence

Many years ago, on the Last Great Family Vacation we had a wonderful picnic on the grounds at Versailles. The guards tried to shoo us away but we weren’t having it!

What a lovely dream day…

Ah Paris! What a delicious day! Let’s hope your dreams come true!
(…do you think Heaven will be a little bit like Paris?)
