peonies, vespas, and castles ... o my gracious

"my mother didn't spoil with gifts
  but with the good things in life: great dinners, friends.  
and after school she'd let me go through her wardrobe."  - Vanessa Bruno
via the gentlewoman, a gift from Cami

if you can manage it, get your hands on this magazine.  
interviews with women who don't try to be anyone but themselves.
inspiring images.
i wish more magazines were like this one.
...
I spent today at JB's game 
and then wandered the streets listening to Adele on my way home.
and now i am packing for Scotland tomorrow!

I hope your Sunday was lovely!!
