The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

November 25, 2011

The Weekend . . .

There is something about these two photos paired together that strikes me as perfect. For others it may not make sense, but there are times when I feel a bit like the young puppy – anticipating, patient, yet knowing my time will come, but also like the woman in the first photo, I observe her confidence and her feminine mystique which is electrifying in a very subtle way.  There is a simplicity about both of these photos that is precious and coveted.  It reminds me that no matter what stage we are at in life, it should be savored, it should be stepped into with our whole selves and reveled in because this time may never come again. 

For some reason with only one month to go in 2011, knowing the year is about to wrap up, I feel as though a stage of my life that I had to go through is ending as well.  So I am sad, yet excited, sorrowful, yet hopeful, uncertain, yet determined, and after running through all of those emotions, I am aware that the most important thing for me to do is to savor it because who knows if or when it will ever feel this way again.

Okay, okay, enough with the mushy-mushy analytical stuff.  It is the weekend, and a very good weekend is in store for us all.  The holiday season has begun, my Christmas music has been playing since Wednesday (Pink Martini, Michael Buble, The Rat Pack, and so much more) and my wreath and garland will be going up today. So while I’m sure that you’ve been busy, here is a look back at the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:

*Monday’s inspiration - All or Nothing

*The Perfect Match – Docica & The Simply Luxurious Life

*I know it’s over, but . . . Why Not . . . Enjoy Thanksgiving?

*Sponsor Post – Savoring Chocolate

*Style Inspiration – comfort, coziness and cashmere

Yes, the puppy picture is precious! The model is so perfect! She's almost unreal, which is in contrast to the puppy. If that made any sense!

Yes, there are so many corners to turn in life...some gentle curves and even u-turns. What I love is knowing that we never have to stop growing and matter what point we are in life!

Happy weekend,

sonia - thank you for your very kind comment. xo

LV - Thank you for signing up and I hope you enjoy. :)

La Kat - thank you for stopping by so regularly. I can't thank you enough for taking the time. I will look into the header thing. Thank you for letting me know.
