Nina posted a lovely question yesterday on her gorgeous blog - what does your perfect day look like? This was my response:
~wake up naturally to sunlight streaming into my room, Lola at my side
~breakfast in bed (grits + spicy sausage + fried egg for savory, french toast with berries for sweet, and oodles of coffee and cream)
~spend the day strolling and shopping the streets of Paris, grab lunch at a darling cafe, enjoy a macaron + tea at Laduree
~back home for an afternoon nap, Lola at my side
~post-nap, curl up with tea, scones + clotted cream, fresh fruit, journal, books, colored pens, stickers, etc.
~get dolled up for dinner at my favorite restaurant in Rome (clearly traveling time does not interfere w/ my perfect day)
~dessert (prob. can't get this in Rome) of warm chocolate molten cake + vanilla bean ice cream + decaf coffee
~post-dinner stroll with a lover, holding hands
~long, hot, fragrant, candle-lit bath in giant tub
~deep tissue massage
~blissful sleep, again with Lola at my side
(In retrospect, i'd probably also throw in a delicious yoga class as well. And maybe add a roaring fire and snow outside?? Mmmm)
What is your idea of a perfect day?
P.S. Nina - i'm dying to hear yours!!
