My ideal life

Today I had a question posed on my contact page (Thanks Pat!) about the pictures I have been using in my headers. I thought the answer should be shared with all of you.

When I was initially designing this blog, I wanted the esthetic to be simple and personal. The images I chose for the header rotations are small samples of beautiful paintings that signify how I hope to always live my life.

Relaxed, near the ocean, full of love, surrounded by my family, and always with a good book nearby.

  2. I love the pics as well. Maybe you could write also write a post about your Blog name, “Escaping Elegance”? I think I get it, but not completely sure.

  3. Beautiful response, the pictures definitely exude the feelings you described

  4. I’ve never seen ‘The New Novel’. Lovely picture.
