Sunshine







Right now we're experiencing minus 20-30 degree temperatures. The kind of weather that gives you frost bite and brain freeze. The kind of weather that makes hard-core winter people shudder. On the other hand, my parents are on vacation and enjoying the bliss and wonder of Hawaii. These images from Mentis Studio make me think of the warmth and sunshine they're experiencing!

Hope you're having heaps of fun Mom and Dad!

I love Florida for many reasons, but will always consider myself a midwesterner. This winter has been a not so subtle reminder of how brutle it can be. Takes me back to my college days when I had to walk across campus and stop in each building along the way to avoid frost bite. not nice. I think you should stay inside until further notice.

We all need a little sunshine! Brain freeze - you are so funny. Stay warm and cuddle up.

What is going on with the weather?! Apparently it is absolutely freezing almost everywhere, and we're in the midst of a January heat wave - not spring time warm, but summer style HOT. Ugh.

I was thinking of you this morning... If it's freezing here, I know it's colder than freezing there!!!
Stay Warm.

Thank you for the warmth and cool images :)

Amber said...

Lovely lovely! This cold weather is making we wish weren't buying a house so we could still go to FL with you guys! Argh!

If this cold weather continues I think I may do something drastic like put in a request to transfer to our San Antonio site!

Stay warm Julia!

Lucky them! My favorite is the bathroom :) I love me a crisp, clean, cottage style bathroom!

Lucky them! It's freezing here too, which is fine if you're inside, but scary cold if you step out!

Sending you as much warmth as I can...fanning it your direction. I remember your kind of cold....and now I romanticize about it...

Well here on Maui we are not experiencing that kind of weather obviously but we do have some crazy wind right now. It is supposed to be up to 80 mph gusts and they are even closing the schools. Our friend who lives on a boat went to Lanai where I guess doesn't have as much wind. Stay warm and drink lots of tea. :) Oh and these photos are quite lovely!

HOW DID I MISS THIS POST?! guh!

i love these pics. they're so... tropical.

i love the one with the sticks (?) for the back wall.. with the white chairs. those chairs are sexy.

i love the yellow room on the right, with the rounded off doorframe (so dated but so chic!) - particularly the way that it peeps into the adjoining room, with all those cute picture frames on the wall. mm.
