Happy May Day

Sending you these pretty pink peonies to say ....

Have a happy May Day

We celebrated my husbands birthday last year at the Ritz in Paris, which was wonderful. We dined in the Grand Jardin, under the glass ceiling and in the shade of the linden trees.
The food was amazing, service impeccable as we had so many waiters looking after us.
The peonies and flower arrangements everywhere were gorgeous

This wooden case was filled with the most delectable chocolates 
and because we could not eat anymore, took the yummy birthday cake back to the apartment we were staying in.

The Hotel was beautiful and if you have a chance to indulge for a visit, do it. Oh to be a Princess for the day, and that is what it felt like.

How can it be that we are into the month of May!
Hope you have a happy week
