Weekend Exploration









A weekend dream.

My weekend dream includes a stay at a beautiful chateau, with vast grounds, a hearty, cozy breakfast and then a full day of exploration... to go for a long drive through the countryside, wondering what might appear at the peak of each hill, twist and turn... what surprise lies ahead... maybe a garden, a village, perhaps a bridge or just picturesque rolling hills... until the evening arrives, and it's time to head back home. Don't you love countryside drives? It's one of my favorite Autumn and Winter things to do on a Sunday afternoon—and has been a tradition, since I was quite little. What is in your dream this weekend? Whatever it might be, I hope you have a lovely one! Thank you so much for stopping by this week, as well as visiting my guest posts here + here.

  8. I literally gasped when I came to the shot of the fields. Breathtaking.
    Your words remind me of many a drive on cold days when frost would linger on the landscape and the sun would peek through and make the whole world glisten like a dream.
