Happy Monday, everyone, and if you’re in the U.S., wishing a happy Memorial Day to you! Take a moment today, if you will, to remember service members around the world, past and present. In the U.S., Memorial Day is the unofficial kick-off to summer, even if the calendar says otherwise, so for some of us, it’s into summer we go!
Since it’s a holiday here and many folks are in and out, traveling, etc., especially with all the high school and college graduations, let’s keep this short.
What are your plans for today, and what fragrance will you be wearing? What are your favorite summer holiday / cookout scents, whether out to Aunt Betty’s backyard barbecue, to that picnic in the park, to a friend’s pool party? Or around the firepit or fireplace, for those of you who may be chilling in the Southern Hemisphere?
I’ll be heading to the beach for a few days this week with the fam, and am taking old favorites such as Aerin Lauder’s Mediterranean Honeysuckle and Calyx for refreshment, and a little dab o’ Carnal Flower, in the hopes that the hubs and I get to have a fancy dinner out. And also something a little comforting, as it looks like we might have a day of rain.
Speaking of fancy (and promise you guys won’t laugh me right off the Posse!), I’m planning on taking a belly-dancing class next week. Yes, you read that right! And even though it won’t be pretty to look at (no washboard abs here), it’ll be a darn sight prettier than it would have been six months ago. I’ve lost some weight and with it, am trying lots of new things that I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing at this time last year. So bring on the castanets!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!!
