    I’m closing the week with a few of my favorite photos from our Spanish holiday. On a cool, rainy morning in Scotland, these photos of blue skies and Mediterranean waters offer a welcome diversion from daily tasks.

    Casa Romana

    I love staying at a fabulous hotel and I especially love great room service. However, after our week at Casa Romana, I have been converted to the world of self-catering.

    A little pink can make us feel young, alive or calm depending on the shade. Whether it’s a pale or deep hue, pink looks at home with many colors. Pair it with white, black, green, blue, brown, yellow, or even orange (just not all at once) for a burst of freshness. Tweet
