{happy monday + à bientôt}

. . . while it may be too soon for late afternoons on ocean waves, writing from a beautiful hotel room in a charming city, near the close of an adventurously spontaneous weekend get-away of baguettes & brioche, velvet & valet parking, moody cafés & starlit walks, and most of all, stolen glances and a little romance . . .
