It’s a dark and cold Friday night and after a long and busy week I’m feeling a little frazzled. The temperature outside has dropped and tomorrow’s weather forecast is predicting heavy snow.

At times like these, I like to revisit photographs that remind me of slightly warmer and more relaxed times. My favourites remind me of beautiful and serene places that I have been privileged to visit and some wonderful experiences with some of my favourite people…

The view of the Italian landscape from Pompeii, 2012



The Seine and the Eiffel Tower, Paris 2010. The Bloke and I sat by the river and watched the sunset



The sunset from the train home after spending the weekend with Mum



A day spent at the spa with my friend, who had generously bought me a pampering session for my birthday



Alexandria, near Washington D.C., 2010



Hope you all have a relaxing Friday night!

  1. Love all these photos! I do the same when the weather is cold and nasty. It’s so nice to have those memories to revisit. I hope you find some coziness and serenity this weekend!


    • Thank you as always! The report has changed and we’re now expecting it on Tuesday and Wednesday instead. Unfortunately, that means that the whole country is likely to shut down for a day or two – we’re totally unequipped to deal with it!

  2. Great pictures. Stay snuggled up by a fire with the Bloke this weekend. It was in the 60s here in Kansas today. I like those temps, but I know it won’t last. It is still winter and I hear we are in for big snows in February. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • It is always good to see the sun. I really brightens my day! It is colder today than yesterday, but still up in the 50s. Cold only because of the 20mph winds. But, much, much better than it has been. Glad you didn’t get your snow. Unless of course you wanted it. ๐Ÿ™‚
