Blue... Love... and Fashion!

First of all let me start this post by saying how truly sorry and bitter I feel about the horrible tragedy that happened in Colorado, hours ago. It couldn't have happened at a worse place since movie theaters are always filled with people including children. We live in a world filled with sick bastards. What a psycho to gas up people, shoot and kill so many. I can't believe how many were injured, too. No kind of death is too harsh on the guy who did this. =( It is truly sad and sickening. My heart broke when I found out.

Secondly, let's move on to a different type of post than usually. I am about to post and comment on photos from a sweet date lunch we had by the beach in Durres, Albania (by the Adriatic Sea, near "The Illyria" beach). I love all the photos from that day and choosing these was hard. I hope you like them as well.

Wishing you all a Lovely, Fabulous Summer Weekend!!

Isn't this place beautiful? When Mother Nature Combines Blues and Greens it can't get any prettier. =) I love the little Palm Trees, too.
And here is me in the middle of all this Beauty. I guess my Blue & White Dress matched dhe Sky & the Sea perfectly. I love this dress. =)
And here is us, taking a walk by the sea after the fabulous lunch we had... It was the perfect Sunday for it. ;-) The sea was so pretty, so blue and real calm, that day. =)
Speaking of a great lunch, the photos of the first two dishes were just our awesome appetizers. We started with a fantastic Wild Mushroom and Portobella appetizer (we both love mushrooms) in a tangy mustard sauce with a red wine and balsamic reduction sauce, as well. Then we had that fabulous Seafood Salad with Sautee Mussels, Shrimp, Lobster and other Shellfish in a White Wine, Lemon and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Sauce. We had more fish and a fantastic pasta dish as our main meal. Throughout we drank some White Sauvignon and those champagne flutes actually carry a Lemon Sorbet which is a specialty of the rastaurant and they offer it for free to every guest. A great, light, refreshing way to end our meal. This fabulous restaurant (which I truly reccomend) is named "Vila Lule" which translates into "Flower Villa".
Here are some more photos of us and of me. I didn't realize I had food in my teeth. You can really see it in those up-close photos so I do apologize. LOL The sun was really bright that day as you can tell. I dan't do without my sunglasses. Yet it wasn't terribly hot. It was the perfect outfit to wear. It's good that there is always a breeze by the sea, as well.

  1. I agree Ada - I don't know what goes so wrong in some people's heads. This post is stunning - what a beautiful location, and you look absolutely fabulous in that dress! The food sounded wonderful and I'm glad you had such a great day - it sounds like things have been stressful, so you deserve it. :) Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks a lot Bonnie. We live in a mad, bad, sad world. I am really scared to go out there.

      Thanks for all the nice compliments and yes I have had a rough couple of weeks.

  2. What a beautiful place, a gorgeous and delicious looking lunch and great company. Hope you had a wonderful day.

    The world is both beautiful and tragic. We have to thrive in it or fail. I like that you go out and embrace the beauty and joy in your life.

    1. Megan, I agree. I don't take any day for granted. Life is too short for misery and regrets. It was just the perfect, most beautiful day and my husband is the perfect company. The lunch was awesome, too. =) Thank you.
