Mandatory Respite

I've been coming and going or otherwise mentally occupied and run down for over a month and the natives are getting restless. So, I've promised Babe and the Ti-Babes a weekend full of quality family time with mandatory recouping pour moi. None of my type A compulsions, only relaxing allowed...

Sooo, I've booked myself a massage, had our special croissants overnighted from Williams-Sonoma, and I'm working on getting Babe's The Rape of Europa movie request filled. All I need are a box of those Patrick Roger truffles and a wee online Hermès purchase and I juuust may start to feel like my old self again...

Kindness of Babe for knowing when I'm outta gas and forcing a refuel. And, Amy for her The Rape of Europa recommendation during our afternoon at the Louvre. I'll be buttering up a croissant, sipping my tea avec crème and mentally narrowing down my silk and cashmere shawl picks while enjoying a li'l art history with the fam...XXOO


  1. Rape of europa is an incredible book, given to me by my English professor at gtown. Full of history and a remarkable story,had no idea it was a documentary. Would love to hear how it is, sure it will be great though....have a great weekend, sounds thoroughly relaxing.

    Btw....cville was just in cville last week, a little dull in january. Fall, spring, and summer are the bomb but winter is rough...did I miss anything?

  2. That movie looks fascinating. I'm putting it at the top of my "watch list." Thanks for mentioning it, and thanks for becoming a follower. Hoping your weekend is restful and fun!

  3. Oh my WORD, the Rape of Europa is FASCINATING. You will not, not, not be disappointed. It is such a good film that I watched it on Netflix, and then bought a physical copy.

    Please do share with us your thoughts after.


  4. Sounds like a great weekend! Enjoy!

  5. Now scooch over, leave some room for me...
    and an Hermes Blanket for my tootsies.
    Looks like a great movie.

  6. Good for you Miss Allie, you have been going-going-going, some R&R is probably overdue.

    Enjoy some snuggly quiet time!

  7. This coming weekend is my first weekend all to myself in about two months - and I can't wait to stay in my nightgown all day tomorrow and just hang out with my cats.

  8. I was wondering when the Energizer bunny would need a recharge.
