Calming Spaces


We are holidaying in Plettenberg Bay with the boys at the moment. So relaxing! I hope you appreciate the effort I am going to, to put together a blog post for you. I have forced myself to come to my favourite French coffee shop, Le Fournil, to have a latte and delicious almond croissant and take advantage of their free WiFi!

One of my favourite things about going on holiday is while you are driving to your destination, that feeling of all the stresses of everyday living slowly leaving your body. I can literally feel my shoulder muscles unclenching and that relaxing feeling slowly making it's way down the rest of my body. (Do you know what I'm talking about! If you don't - you need a holiday!!) Unless you are one of those lucky people who feels permanently relaxed.

The selection of pictures I'm showing you today give me that same calm, relaxed feeling I get when going on holiday. No jarring colours, very little accessorising, nothing to assault the senses, just serene and peaceful.

No more commentary .... that would require more effort than I'm really feeling up to right now, plus I have that almond croissant to tuck into! Enjoy!

Till next time
