best sensations

The rush of love, first whiff of spring blossoms, grit of the garden under fingernails, the sight of seeds sprouting (I never believe they will), a ludicrously good meal with sparkling companions, laughing till you’re weak with it, an unexpectedly lengthy and sensual head massage when being shampooed at the (go to only out of necessity) hairdresser’s, the euphoria of runner’s high, untangled knot of massages, hitting send on a report that’s been expanding your repertoire of curse words for weeks, getting close to finishing your best painting, slowing down, taking your time, so that the feeling of doing it right for once may last a bit longer, sinking back into an obscenely large mass of pillows before opening the half-read book you’ve been craving all day, watching a truly great movie, the smell of steamed oranges being prepared by the best boyfriend ever when you’re bedfellows with a flu, waking up thinking it’s Monday then realising it’s Sunday so sighing back into sleep, fitting into a size 4 jacket when you are actually a size 8 and you weren’t even wearing a spanx.

  1. Ha! I just trained for and ran my first 10K (yesterday!). I’m still waiting to experience that runner’s high!
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!


  2. oh, i love those sensations–especially the hitting send on a cursable report. what relief! annnnd i can’t believe this outfit is totally thrifted–it looks so put-together. i like the complementary colors of skirt and jacket and the print of that skirt. you look lovely!

  3. Your maxi is stunning; the print and colors are amazing. I hope you wear it on a date night and show it really glam’d up. On a sexy scale I think it’s about as close to a 10 as you can get. Best sensation is tough – they happen every day. We had dinner last night with a couple of my coworkers and their wives, and I’ve gotta say it was an over-the-top, relaxing, laughter filled evening. Sensational!


  4. I love your jacket and the shoes…great finds. I also like the way you styled your maxi! I have just discovered your blog and I will return to check it out again! Please come on over to mine and say hello!!
