The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

September 30, 2011

The Weekend . . .

As fashion week in Paris is in full swing, yet wrapping up a month full of sartorial dreams and long wish lists, I couldn’t help but choose the photo above.  Whether or not the model is dreaming about the wares that made their way down the runway, a hope for her future or simply day dreaming, there’s something about finding time to sit alone in a cafe.  While sipping your favorite caffeine concoction and enjoying possibly a delectable treat, the world seems to spin without you for a moment and allow for mind just be, just relax.

This weekend, I hope to find such time to be by myself, if only just to catch my breath and be grateful. I hope you too are able find some time to do this as well.  By being able to find these types of moments, just recognizing we have such an opportunity, makes our lives seem all the more rich and full.

Here is a look back on the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:

Shannon,
I've been a long time reader of your blog and just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I enjoy it and how much inspiration I find here. I don't typically have time to read the posts during the week but enjoying your blog has become a favorite part of my Saturday morning/weekend ritual. Thank you for ideas, reflections and inspiration!
