What Are You Looking Forward to, This Weekend?

This weekend I'm so excited for the simple little pleasures that I'm hoping to take full advantage of.
Here's what I'm...
looking forward to:
Flowers. Spring Blossoms.
Midnight-snack. Mini Chocolate Croissants. 
Food. Freshly baked puff pastry filled with mincemeat and fresh double cream topped with redcurrant.
Fruit. Strawberries and Berries.
Sunset. I love to watch the sun setting over the horizon, painting it in shades of red and orange, glittering on the water of the small lake...
Walks. I'm so looking forward to long walks in the woods.

So glad it is the weekend...I've been feeling quite inspired lately guys. Today. It's gonna be a great day for you, for me, for all of us!

What are you looking forward to doing this weekend, my dears?

Hope you have a great one! xx

Whenever I visit your blog, I never know if I want to fall into a bouquet of fresh flowers or eat myself silly on scrumptious treats. All of course, while watching an amazing sunset. That last forest image.. oh my.. that looks surreal. Just beautiful. Enjoy the weekend, dear one.

La Gata Coqueta said...




A veces puedo estar distante
pero nunca ausente,
puedo no escribirte,
pero jamás olvidarte...
y cuando me necesites, puedo
no estar cerca, pero jamás abandonarte...
porque estas en mi corazón!!

Hoy me encuentro celebrando,
el 5º aniversario del nacimiento
del blog de La gata coqueta
y sin pararme a pensar
en mi torpe atrevimiento...
...al pasar sin avisar,
para entregarte la invitación a la celebración,
que de mano me harías sentir muy feliz brindando a mi lado.

¡¡Gracias por asistir a la que desde siempre ha sido tu casa!!

Un abrazo desde el ❤ y con el ❤
Feliz domingo!!

Atte.
María Del Carmen

Mnie wystarczą piękne kwiaty i cudowne widoki na niebie, nie trzeba mi słodyczy do jedzenia. Pozdrawiam.

La Gata Coqueta said...




Las palabras en silencio
son melodías de ternura,
refugio de sensaciones,
que sigilosas van en busca de emociones
para vestir la vida de alegres tentaciones...
...deteniéndose a perfumar los sentimientos,
con el aroma de las flores, que irán brotado
durante este mes de mayo.

Hoy mejor que ayer...
Un beso y una flor para ti!

Atte.
María Del Carmen
