Wish I Were Here...

I'm having a major " I need to get away from it all" movement, if you will. The past few weeks have been rather overwhelming. Nothing worth getting into, but let's just say I would love to run away and hang out here for awhile, all by myself...

A colorful little getaway in the woods. No phones, no TV, no computer. Just a few good books to help pass the time. Give me two days...is that too much to ask?

Images via. (Anyone have any idea what the text says? I made out France, vacation and nature, which is all I really need to know!)

  3. You're right, a getaway like this would be quite nice! That first photo is so fun and lively, how fun to curl up in there with a fun summer read...

  4. I've totally been feeling that way too, only I'm pretty much ready to pack up my things and move to a secluded island for like a month.

    also, have you ever seen the movie stardust? the styling is pretty awesome and one of the witches lives in a shed/cart that looks exactly like that. if you've haven't seen it, you should!

  5. Oh, hang in there. I totally know the feeling. And two days is not too much to ask and would more than remedy things!

  6. Girl. Take a few days. Can you ? If your life is like mine-never! It would all fall apart without me. Yikes. But maybe you can get a sitter and go get an hour hotvrock massage?!! That helps me. I just started exercising again too- that helps with the stress too. Xo

  13. Oh my gosh! I've had a picture of this boxcar in my files for weeks, figuring out what to do with it. I was also thinking that it reminded me of my favorite childhood book The Boxcar Children. Thanks so much for sharing!

  16. Fantastic! And I mean that in the sense that is seems so capable of spurring one's fantasies.

    BTW I really like your blog. Interested in exchanging links?

  17. This also reminded me of an exotic version of The Boxcar Children. Personally I can see me and lover Johnny Depp having a pleasant getaway. This seems like his scene. Gypsy-chic, if you will.

    I've been stressed too. I hope that with the summer sun comes some much needed relaxation.
