Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was a bit hectic—family party, ailing pet—but Saturday afternoon provided my daughter and I a few perfectly peaceful hours to stroll in our town square and visit one of our favorite places – the always inviting outdoor mercado.

A gorgeous array of fresh flowers, and colorful fruits, and vegetables, are  artfully placed on and along the brick facade walls that line this old-world alleyway. Its European charm reminds us both of our travels through France and the many outdoor markets we frequented and loved.  

Simple pleasures – always a reason to smile.

Have a great week! xox-M
