My birthday is coming up next week and I often present my family with a detailed wish list. There’s usually some sort of live creature on the list, so I know they don’t take it too seriously, but it’s always nice to have a wish list prepared just in case, right? The spring catalogs have been arriving nearly daily, so I had lots of ideas and new loves. I’m starting to get hopeful about the warm weather and we’re planning our summer vacations. When planning trips, I tend to develop terribly romantic notions (evening walks on cobblestone streets, dips in the Mediterranean Sea, browsing foreign museums in newly purchased espadrilles…you know), so I plan my wardrobe purchases accordingly. Every year, I just long to be browsing on Calle Serrano, purchasing books along the Seine or people watching in Roman piazzas. Although it doesn’t happen every year, it’s wonderful to imagine! I highly suggest it.
