What I'm Loving Wednesday...My happy place.

Day 6 of the challenge is 6 places. I'm also combining this post with my usual WILW so these are all places that I love, and hold very special meaning to me.

1. New York City.

I love New York for all of the obvious reasons, it's an amazing city with so much to see and do, but the real reason it's on my list of 6 is because it's now where my family lives, and really there's no place like mom & dads so it's definitely number one on my list.

Hanging out in this adorable apt. with my family trumps all the skyscrapers in the world.

My mom has the most incredible eye. This is my favorite room in the world.

Daddy & Me on the roof of his office!

2-6 in no particular order are:

2. On the topic of the Big Apple I would have to say that the Central Park Boat House is hands down one of my favorite places. It's such an iconic location and you've prob seen it in many movies! Roomie and I ate here when we visited in 2008 and saw Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon there and I've been back twice with Mr. Jones and my parents. I love sitting on the water or inside in the giant leather chairs next to the fire!

My favorite spot for a glass of wine after a long day touring NYC

3. The South, specifically North Carolina/ South Carolina

This is a sneaky 2 for 1. Again, it's a place that is home. NC is where I was born and lived until I was 8, it's where my grandparents, immediate Aunts, Uncles & Cousins live, and it's where I've spent every summer vacation for the last 20 years!

Granny's house, home of mud pies and big wheels, biscuits and gravy and many many memories.

The lobby of Charleston Place Hotel, SC

Pool & Terrace

Charleston, SC my favorite vacation destination.

4. The Jones house, specifically the living room and the back yard! Many a weekend has been spent relaxing in both of these wonderful places. It's definitely a happy place for me and I look forward to not only spending time here but most importantly with the company I'm surrounded by.

Right in front of the fire place is my favorite spot the morning after Christmas, cuddled up with tea and sandwiches and a good movie marathon.

And their backyard is a little slice of heaven.

5. Santa's Tree Farm, Half Moon Bay CA

What can I say, I'm a sucker for Christmas, and we came here every year for 16 years as a family to cut our tree down. Just looking at the pictures makes me feel like a kid and gives me that giddy holiday feeling. I love that Mr. Jones and I have held on to the tradition and I look forward to heading here for many years to come.

Pure Holiday Magic.

6. San Francisco...

Last but not least home sweet home. I have a total love affair with this city by the bay and our home here. Every day I wake up and fall asleep feeling so blessed that this is the place I call home. The best place to be in my opinion.

Hope all of you find yourself in your happy place this Wednesday.

XOXO-Miss V.
