The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

May 6, 2011

The Weekend . . .

The first full weekend in May is one of my favorites of the entire year. Why you may wonder? Well, for me it is a sort of Christmas in such that I am able to spend it with friends I love, food that is scrumptious, taste wine that is delicious and enjoy fabulous festivities without having to worry about shopping for gifts or bad weather.

It is the local annual event of the Spring Release where all of the 100+ wineries share their most recent wines with people who come from around the country and the world. For the last five years now, a handful of my closest friends, and my mother and her friends come together for a memorable day full of laughs, fun and everything one might imagine.

And as Mother’s Day is this Sunday here in the states, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it with my mom.

I hope you too are gearing up for a fantastic weekend and are able to feel content with the week that has just past.  In case your week was a bit hectic, here is a look at a few of the popular posts on The Simply Luxurious Life this past week:

*Keri Russell’s Brownstone Dream Home

*Why Not . . . Be A Successful Woman? Part Deux

*Lighting As Jewelry

*Style Inspiration (a few of nautical touches)

*The Costume Institute Gala at the Met 2011

*Rules of Style – Gwyneth Paltrow

*Strawberry Rhubarb Tartlet (one of my favorite spring desserts)

*And this week’s newsletter – #47 – have a look here.

Bonjour! I’ll see you on Monday!

I picked a very chic French restaurant (I've been dying to try) for my mother's day brunch that I'll be celebrating with my husband and my daughter. I'm very excited to just share this fun experience with them.

Have a wonderful weekend!
