Fall Picnics in the English Countryside

September 17, 2012

Om, are we all loving this amazing cooler weather?  
Making our Monday more bearable I hope?

So you know how we all look at pictures on Pinterest and think to ourselves, wow, do people really live like that?  No, probably not.  And then you see those same pictures on my a friend's blog and think, dang, maybe so, because that's her right in the middle of that scene.  
Yes, this is exactly what happened when I was looking through the pictures an old friend from college posted recently.  Well done Amber.  Living life to the fullest.  Making the small moments count.
Of course it doesn't hurt when that life takes you to the high cliffs of Devon, England and those little moments involve your adorable English bred husband and his bad-ass land rover.
But it's the small touches like the wicker picnic basket, the old plaid wool blankets, and leftover champagne that make it feel special.
Amber is talented photographer and has documented their amazing international life together on her blog.  You should go check it out.  
Glamorous life my dear!
What small touches have you added to your life lately to make it feel more special?  To find the extraordinary in the ordinary?
