It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” —Mark Twain

. . . and at long last, the eternal enchantment that is spring has arrived, and while winter may have its cozy, fire-lit nights, spring has its breezes by starlight and magnolia blossoms in sunlight, its long-awaited, lingering excitement that soon there will be pleated skirts and picnics, café crème and macarons in quaint light-filled cafés in late morning, and butterflies and golden skies in early evening . . .

happy spring! hope it is filled with beautiful things & new beginnings, —roséline xo

{p.s.} spent most of the day, yesterday, out of the office in favour of working in a sun-drenched café, having apparently already fallen to spring fever and there’s magic in the air

How lovely that you spent your work day in a sun-drenched café! Thank you for reminding me that the magic of this beautiful season is so deserving of embracing the moments… (and I must say that very little at this moment sounds more perfect than picnics, macarons, and butterflies!)

  • Ooooo, I can’t wait for the trees to explode in blossoms! We are a few weeks away here in Colorado, but I am giddy with anticipation!

  • This photo is a great embodiment of spring to me! I wish I was working in a sun drenched cafe, instead the weather is still “wintery mix” here in NYC. Good things come to those who wait… here’s to hoping spring comes soon!
