  1. Oh Wow Melissa! Have a super trip. It's hot as can be already here this morning. Just back from school walk and thinking of hopping in the shower again. Likewise here, there is barely a spring before it's scorching. Have a super holiday.

  2. Wow, have a great trip!! Thanks so much for visiting my blog...love yours & now following :)

  3. Hello Melissa

    I've never been but heard it is beautiful

  5. Have a lovely trip. I will eagerly await the photos. I am loving spring, I have been baking and tidying like a mad woman.

  6. Wishing you the happiest of sun-kissed travels Melissa :)

  7. You've been followed! Have a superb holiday!! 30 days till I get mine - hawaii again! Woo hoo! The weather has gotten cooler here in Chicago and today actually does feel a bit like Fall. The leaves are actually starting to change colors and fall ever so gently to the ground. Fall is by far my favorite season - the warm colors, golden sunsets, comfort food and holidays. Isn't every day a litte better with something pumpkin? Cheers!

  8. I am loving that Autumn here means I can buy pumpkin again! I never realised how "seasonal" pumpkin was cause we ate it ALL the time at home in Australia. Oh how I missed it when we moved here. Now I am making pumpkin soup, roast pumpkin, pumpkin loaf, and anything else I can fit in!!
    Have a brilliant trip, you lucky duck!

  9. How heavenly, you gorgeous girl. Another holiday! Just blissful. Enjoy every second of it. Hmm, well it's part of The Great Unpack but I am relishing doing some spring cleaning, especially in a certain *room of my own*! J x

  10. Hi Melissa,

    We hope you have a marvellous time. The whole area of Malta is absolutely stunning. Take care, and we look forward to hearing all about it when you return.

  11. I'm so jealous of all your wonderful vacations! Can I come live with you? :)

    My favorite thing about going into fall is that the days are still warm, but the mornings and evenings are a little cooler. It's so nice to sit out on the back patio in the morning with a cup of cofee and in the evening with a glass of wine and just enjoy some fresh air. (Our summers are so hot and muggy even in the am and pm to enjoy sitting outside).
    I also love that fall means football season, as I LOVE football!
    Have a fabulous vacation! Can't wait to see your pictures!

  12. Hi Melissa, Wishing you a wonderful time on your holiday. Relax and enjoy! x

  13. What gorgeous images! I grew up in Northern CA which had the loveliest of season changes. I know live in Phoenix where there are only 2~ hot and hotter. :(

  14. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
    Fall love for me is....the birthday of my girls! As for celebrating Fall? well, you know how I feel about cold, rain, wind and lost of leaves to clean up....anyhoo, see you when you get back, tanned, shopped out and rested from your family break,
    bye! Mx

  15. Hope you have a great holiday :) I am already a follower. I love Autumn approaching with the slight chill in the air and the changing colours and being able to wear scarves and hats again :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  16. Just stopping by to wish
    you Bon voyage and to

  17. hope you're having a great time! i always love the change of season, especially winter to spring and summer to autumn. the reilef from the cold or heat and everything beautiful that nature brings!
    facebooking now..

  18. The changing seasons are just so full of promise. The newness of the days feels unknown and unchartered. The nights bring relief from the heat, from the cold. Springtime (my time now) is my most favourite of all as the world seems to burst open after being closed up for the winter. x

  19. Hi melissa, looking forward to your giveaway!!! I really love when i spy the very first calla lillies in the bush land accross from the school at the end of winter, the first signs of spring!! And i get really excited when we have our first beach visit at the start of summer and we get home smelling of the salty air and sunscreen!! i Loooove that! knowing that the whole summer lies ahead ... all those warm bright happy days, school holidays, christmas, bbqs etc!! Definently my favourites!!!
