Today, Shannon of The Simply Luxurious Life is sharing with us her glimpse of paradise.
To Shannon, Paradise
feels like: a soft cashmere sweater lightly caressing your skin, a gentle touch from someone who loves and protects you, freshly laundered Egyptian sheets
looks like: a welcoming countryside with spring blossoms bursting with color, a cobbled street with fresh food, cheese and wine begging to be enjoyed, an uncluttered home with ample space for conversation and laughter – oh, and a side table to place my wine glass
smells like: luscious soothing lavender, freshly brewed coffee, a warm apple tart just pulled from the oven
tastes like: a handmade chocolate truffle, crisp, cold water with a hint of lemon, the melding textures and flavors of sliced heirloom tomatoes paired with fresh mozzarella and a sprinkle of julienned basil and salt
sounds like: sweet and steady rain falling atop an umbrella, French music filling the cafe or home as simple every day pleasures are enjoyed, silence
Really, Shannon, you have an amazing way with words! Thank you for your descriptions, they managed to take me away from reality for some moments!
