Summer is making a (brief) comeback here in Antwerp. On a hot day like today I wish I lived in a beautiful, cool house with shutters. I love these images above; they feature in my day-dreams where I always seem to be living in Italy or France. I'd pick up some wonderfully fresh vegetables at the local market and cook up a storm, invite some friends over and spend a long, leisurely evening in the garden. Just one long table and lots of laughter and wonderful conversations. Bliss.
