  4. Hi HHL,

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures. The mere word Tuscany reminds me of vacationing in Italy. Perhaps I can convice my wife to give it one more chance.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    Blessings and peace.


  5. Gorgeous pics! Of course my fav are of London (being a Londoner).
    Amsterdam looks divine too. Maybe next time Seville, Spain? ;-)

  6. Beautiful pictures. Missing home A lot

  7. I am so dreaming of sunshine and warmth.:) I live in Norway and have decided this cold winter has gone on long enough although to be fair, spring is incredible here when it finally comes.:)

    Have a lovely weekend!

  8. Dearest Celia,

    About your previous post; how well worded. You are a very gifted writer for being able to express you innermost feelings so well. God bless you and for sure, you're probably touching more others than you ever will know. Plus the ripple effect...

    Yeah, dreaming about spring. You make me feel Dutch again, even for being an American for over 17 years but I am mighty proud of the Dutch flower bulbs. That is such a beauty that they've exported all over the world. It lifts up millions of people after exiting a long winter.
    I'm certainly looking forward to our first daffodils, the tulips have been eaten by critters (the bulbs that is; that is gourmet food to some...). One more month and we'll see some change. But your post today is very uplifting and I want to thank you for that!

    Lots of love,

    What beautiful, inspiring pictures from around the world! I think as we've yet to experience a true winter we're not as in dire need of a break from the weather. But it doesn't stop me from looking forward to the months where the sun warms your shoulders and lights you up from the inside.

    A lovely day to you!
