{summertime & little luxuries}






. . . the way the early morning light glimmers off the faceted crystals of a chandelier, the warm slant of sunlight on a perfect reading corner and a bouquet of coral-coloured roses, fresh baguettes for brunch and an early evening glass of rosé -- the days are much longer now and the bright mornings are filled with the music of a million birds -- it's summertime, summertime, and every moment feels like a luxury . . .

Oh, how beautiful this is... I simply adore the luxurious feeling of summer as you described, every day truly does feel like endless moments of bliss. I have chills from the way you described bright mornings and the song of a million birds -- there is just something so peaceful and so beautiful about summer. It seems as though this time of year beckons one to slow down and breath.

These photos are so gorgeous.. and fresh baguettes with a lovely bottle of Rosé are calling my name, and urging me to enjoy a picnic!
