{hello & early morning musings}



. . . while it may be infinitely easier to slow things down {just a little} on weekends, during a busy work week, there is the wonderful opportunity to find a perfect balance, and while there is always time for cups of coffee and spring bouquets, after reading this earlier in the week, have come to the realization that, now more than ever, there might be more time set aside for breakfast and the morning paper, for afternoon tea away from the office and more late lunches on terraces, and time spent in the sun, especially with summer soon on its way . . .

Good Morning Roséline!

Your hints of summer on the way always bring me a spark of excitement... and even more your reminders to stop and enjoy the beauty of warmer weather, and late lunches on terraces sound positively divine. These photos equally whisper to me a soft reminder to soak in the beauty of the day... actually at this moment I am listening to the wind in the trees, the birds, and smelling a subtle ocean salt in the air -- could not be more fitting to soak in these lovely photos. Those flowers are so gorgeous! Thank you for these beautiful reminders and inspiring words...

Absolutely! That sounds Lovely. Waiting for an al fresco lunch to start in just a few minutes myself. Slow down and indulge in life my dear. It's the only way to live.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Such true words! It's hard to find the time to slow down and enjoy the little things in life. But, when you do, it's heavenly*

...I need to do it more often!

Beautiful flowers-I love peonies! I actually just wrote my own post today about my favorite part about summer-the sunsets. My moment to slow down and just take it all in!

Happy weekend,
