The Simply Luxurious Life®: Thursday Treasures

Thursday Treasures

Today I am off to my home away from home – Portland, and I can’t wait to arrive.  A bit of shopping, time with good friends, a stroll through the Pearl during First Thursday to take in the art and some wine, should be a wonderful time.  This past week has been lovely in its routine.  It’s funny how when our schedules take on a life of their own, our day to day routine is that much more appreciated.

Here are a few things I very much appreciated this past week. . .


. . . naps . . .

. . . deliciously healthy recipes . . .


. . . Ben & Jerry’s FroYo Chocolate Fudge Brownie  . . .

. . .  unexpected opportunities . . .


. . . and tea in the morning.


What are you thankful for?

I LOVE the West Coast! (But then, I love the East Coast too, for different reasons)

I have never been to Portland, only to CA - but I always wanted to see more: Portland and Seattle, especially.

Have a wonderful time! Enjoy all these hings and more!

P.S. Ben&Jerry's Fudge Brownie FroYo is my fave, too. Unfortunately they don't have it here in Switzerland :-(

*sigh* taking in art! That, in and of itself, is an incredible joy. Soothing, relaxing, inspiring, and a feast for the eyes. You have to love the big cities and their amazingly talented residents. One thing I miss about not living in NYC is wandering in art galleries in lower Manhattan on a whim. Enjoy your day!

I'm actually sort of enjoying your list of highlights more than mine this week!

But, always, thankful for the support and love of my friends and family.

Thankful for my health, feeling healthy, being active and eating well.

Thankful for good weather! Finally - yay!

Thankful that I am loving my job these days.

Have fun in Portland! :)

I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the fourth of July fireworks along the river front. I was there a few years back, no crowds at all and a great view.

I love the Pearl District.

Have a wonderful time!

I say thank goodness for air conditioning after the steamy week we had in the south last week! And for new blog friends, of course!
