Today's fantastic guest poster is Brynn from Chartreuse and a Twist, a great blogging friend of mine! She is describing her ultimate Greek Dream and I can only hope I am having this amazing of a time on my vacation right now!

I had a dream last night…
that I was wandering the Greek Isles…
I stayed at the most heavenly villa where the view just took my breath away…

After exploring the gorgeous beaches, I wandered into town and popped into an adorable little tavern…
Where I feasted on ladenia {a greek sort-of pizza}…oh, it was soooooooooo delicious!!!
I also enjoyed a little ouzo! {when in Greece…}

Once I was finished with lunch, I met up with a girlfriend and we set out on a shopping adventure around town…
I found the most gorgeously perfect pair of Greek sandals, an amazingly beautiful necklace with a vintage brass stamping of an Ancient Greek woman thinking {totally suited for a goddess!}, and the coolest vintage Greek typewriter {definitely couldn’t pass that one up!}
Ahhh…it was such a perfect afternoon!

A little later in the evening, I made a wardrobe change into my most lovely Greek goddess inspired ensemble {hair & all!} …
And headed to a rooftop bar overlooking the Isles, where I met some friends…we found ourselves sipping away on fancy Greek cocktails all night long {including this very scrumptious ouzotini!}

…And then I woke up…
and realized that it was Julie who enjoying all of this lovely Greek goodness!

Thank you so much, Julie, for inviting me to do this guest post! It is such an honor J
 I hope that you have an amazing trip & the time of your life!!! I can’t wait to see the photos!
