Paris: Simply Irresistible in Red, Black, and White

Today I am joining Anita, the sweet heart from Castles Crowns and Cottages, for the Paris: Simple Irresistible link party!

It is about all the wonderful things that make Paris so special to each one of us.

I think Paris has a special meaning that is different to each individual based on unique experiences and memories that we create there. To me, the beauty of the city spoke to me the most. Everywhere you look you see the most amazing architecture. And here are other things that really made Paris to me...


sweet treats

Notre Dame

macarons and espresso


that beautiful architecture

boat rides on the Seine


and of course, the Eiffel Tower!

And those are some of the things that make Paris irresistible to me.

There are many blogs linking up, so visit Anita's, then browse other blogs and follow the party!


Love is the Honey

"Life is the flower for which love is the honey."
-Victor Hugo

Life really is not much without love. I hope your life is filled with love surrounding you. If it's not, you may want to cut those things which are not out of your life. Today is too precious to keep on living with those things that don't add sweetness, gentleness, and love to your life.

One thing that I think can physically represents this is the beauty of petals...





"Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you've got to let it grow."
-John Lennon


Book-Themed Baby Shower

From all your lovely comments on Martha's poppies, I can see that some of you are familiar with the Martha Stewart Living May issue, so sorry for this repetitiveness, but this baby shower is too cute not to share!
I really think this theme could be incorporated into any party, not just for a baby shower!
