    wildest dreams

    “why not seize the pleasure at once, how often is happiness destroyed by preparation, foolish preparations.”

    by the time thursdays roll around, my mind is racing off, dreaming up grand adventures of every shape and color 🙂

    where shall we whisk off to this week?
     

    inspired by my neverending adoration of miss jane austen’s magnificent tales, i have been imagining a weekend escape to the romantic english countryside of rowsley, just a hop & skip from the famed austen locales of chatsworth {hello mr. darcy!} and peak district

    and tucked inside this land of handsome manors, lush sprawling greenery and romance galore is a perfect inn that celebrates all things english – the peacock at rowsley.
    {the peacock at rowsley}

    it’s exterior has the charm of old england and the interior has the glamour of mid century. the cast of the most recent version of pride & prejudice as well as brilliant historic authors like henry wadsworth longfellow, called this inn home at one point in their lives…and i hope one day i do too! isn’t it marvelous?
    now it’s your turn, my fellow jet setters! what far away land are you dreaming of this week?

    xo,

      I adore Jane Austen! I would love to visit the haunts of her stories someday! My heart is always dreaming of Rome, my one true love! Piazzas, wine, and fabulous fountains around every corner : )

      Wouldn’t that be amazing? I’m dreaming of a little Mexican getaway-a few margaritas and lots of napping on the beach!
