{Out for a Sunday Drive}: Olive, Peach, Antique Gold, Camel + White

{Olive, Peach, Antique Gold, Camel + White}

Hi there! And how are you on this glorious Monday? Feeling revived from a relaxing weekend, I'm hoping. I don't know about you, but I had such a great weekend. It was the perfect weekend. A weekend full of laughter, full of a lot of down time and just the sort of weekend you wish would never end. I suppose all good things must come to an end though. In any case, it got me to thinking how wonderful it would be to capture that sweet, carefree feeling and incorporate that vibe into a wedding. To me, this palette is exuding a late Summer, early Autumn feel that I seriously can't get enough of. I'm absolutely loving the sweet picnic table underneath those gorgeous trees. {continued...}

Details We Love
Getaway Car + Picnic Under the Trees

It's the simple things in life that make me happy. One of the things that my husband and I love to do most is packing a picnic, getting in the car and just driving around to take in the scenery. I'm not sure if you feel the same, but I just happen to find it so relaxing to drive through the country or even up to the mountains. There is something sort of peaceful and therapeutic about it. And even if it's just for the day, new scenery always has a way of making me feel good inside. So tell me, lovelies, what did you get into this weekend? Did you enjoy a little down time like I did?

Such a beautiful colour palette! I really miss being able to pack up the car and take a drive out to the beach/mountains for a picnic. Now we just pop over to the common in the middle of the city - not the same as the mountains but it does the trick.
