{happy 'relaxation day'}

It's FRIDAY??? Already? This week was quite odd and though each day seemed to last forever, I'm confused at the fact that it's Friday. (Maybe that's because I was "off" all week. You know what I mean? I kept thinking Tuesday was Wednesday, etc. Exactly. Makes for an "off" week.) Either way, Friday is here!

This is where I want to be today } standing in the middle of lavender. Why? I have NO idea. In all reality I don't love-love the smell of lavender. Yes, sure - I love the IDEA of it, but I don't crave the smell. (Until today apparently.) And let me clarify :: I like seeing it dried (like on a bed for guests, etc) - but put it in a floral perfume and I need it in small doses. But, like I said - today, I have a different perspective. No matter the smell though, how could anyone resist this gorgeous field in the South of France?
:: for my imagination I guess, as it'll be a while before I go back to France. *sigh*

I totally agree with you about lavender....beautiful to look at. I wouldn't mind having some in my garden some day. I love it dried, but the smell is so strong it has to be used in moderation. Thanks for the fun facts about today...who knew. Hope you have a relaxing day as well.
