I am starting a new thing. Sweet Escape Fridays. Have you heard the Gwen Stefani song “Sweet Escape”? The lyrics are something like this:
If I could escape
And re-create a place as my own world
And I could be your favorite girl
Forever, perfectly together
And tell me boy, now wouldn’t that be sweet?
Sweet, huh? From now on, hitherto (I always wanted to use that word, or maybe it is supposed to be hither forth–I’ll check on that), I am going to reserve Fridays as Sweet Escape Fridays — a day to re-create a world in my own mind where everything is pink. No, just kidding. Not pink, but just sweet. Places I’d love to escape to, real or imagined, dreamy thoughts about how life should always be, things that really make me happy, or whatever comes to mind. Dreamy stuff. Whatever. And I hope you will start to join me in my Sweet Escapes. Feel free to leave a comment about YOUR sweet escape for the day or for the weekend.
As you can see above, I am sharing a photo of my pink chair. A blogging friend Terri talked about her pink stuff yesterday and I told her I would share my pink chair. As I mentioned to her, my husband is not a big fan of pink. Luckily, however, he is understanding that a yummy coral pink is one of my most favorite colors and he has indulged me now and then. While generally we have a good balance in our home of masculine and feminine decor, I somehow won out in our bedroom and I have my pink chair, my favorite flowery curtains and I am happy as a clam.
My pink chair is my sweet escape. Now, of course it is in my own bedroom, so you might be asking “How is THAT a sweet escape?” Well, I’ll tell you. My bedroom has locks on the doors. And in a house with lots of children, dogs, noise and activity, my chair is the only place in the house I can escape to where I can just sit and think without anyone bugging me. When you live in a busy household, having a sweet escape for some solitude in your own home is pure bliss. And, for today, it is my sweet escape!
P.S. Don’t forget to come back Monday for the first of our “senses” series!
