Before Giving Up Summer Completely....

I was sort of distressed and depressed yesterday afternoon,
and one of my best ways of beating these feelings is to sit down
before my trusty computer and look at pretty pictures.

the evocativeness of these images will touch you too.

all from Vogue Living/Australia on Tumblr

needless to say, I love HOT pink, fuchsias of all colors.

looking through the glorious images available to all of us via the www
is wonderful, but not quite as wonderful as joining girlfriends for cocktails at about
5:30 in the afternoon.

the blues, worries, concerns and fears are temporarily swept away with
this most wonderful form of therapy.
