dear readers i will share my photographs of my europe trip soon but while i was away i found myself reflecting on what is important, true moments of pure goodness versus fluff. i started to the think back to one sunday when k, elle and i took a drive to hudson, ny. rain fell gently so we tucked into my favorite cafe swallow. elle and k put numbers in my iphone while i sipped and looked around. there was this beautiful woman dressed in a vintage yellow skirt, with firey red hair moments later her stylist came in ( yes, i tiny bit famous) i chatted a took pics. we stopped into a shop and bought the most delicious and expensive peaches and ate them as we strolled down main street, we bumped into a farmer and bought beautiful fresh produce. then we made our way to a bakery and bought a baguette before settling down and having the best grilled pizza all while chatting, laughing while exchanging stories. on the way back to the car i saw these weathered shutter doors with a chain on it, one of the lattices had fallen and i peeked inside, what i found was the most beautiful wild ivy garden, tucked away between two brick buildings, so lovely. we drove back along the hudson river which is one of the most beautiful drives. it was a a great day and i found myself reflecting on it while i strolled the streets in paris and knew that i wanted to post about for safe keeping.
now i must go and get the house ready for tomorrow i pick up my dear friend kimberly who arrives to spend the week with me that includes a weekend in montreal.
