It’s Fall time and I am out and about enjoying the season. I love Fall when the leaves turn colors and start to fall. There are still lots of plants and flowers in bloom too and it is such a pretty time of year.
I love a fabulous Flamingo print and Lady V really delivered with the Dinah Skirt – Pretty In Pink Flamingos that combines my love for polka dots and flamingos into this new for SS2018 1950s inspired skirt that is made in England. The fabric is very nice quality cotton that holds it shape firmly, has plenty of room for a fluffy petticoat and has a super fun print with a navy blue background, bright pink flamingos, palm fronds, and perfect polka dots. Skirt zips up the back and also has pockets!!
For today’s motivational Monday post I wanted to share our visit to St. Francis Winery and Vineyards in northern California. The day started with a long drive south to meet some dear old friends that were in town for an impromptu getaway. We met for breakfast and had such a good time. Our friends had planned to drive up north and tour a local winery and invited us to join them at St. Francis Winery and Vineyard.
From the moment we arrived, it was like something out of Italy. The location was spectacular and there was an old bell tower and statues of St. Francis himself. The property was stunning! Vast vineyards, lots of lavender and gardens as well as several shaded out-door patios to enjoy wine tastings and snacks.
We had such a nice visit with our friends, found that we are all that point in life where you re-evaluate and priorities change, family and friends are what is important.
Of course, I had to get a little Pinup Girl style in today. I opted for greens! I am wearing The Oblong Shop’s Puffer Fish novelty print circle skirt and although hard to see in tis pic, my Luxuriate fish brooch.
Motivation can come from several sources. You can be motivated to achieve many things weather it’s having a big job title, higher paying salary, becoming a better wife or husband, mother or father, son or daughter. Also, finding joy, serenity and contentment with the simpler things in life, that too can increase motivation to find ways to fully enjoy each and every day.
