Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 16.11.15

IT HAS BEEN RAINING for days and it is just as well, with all the sadness that has been going on in the world recently. This weekend, we felt compelled to stay close together, spending time in deep conversation over candlelight in favourite places, running errands to keep things feeling normal despite all that has been coming through the screens — errands and organising and preparing for the major changes ahead, the new adventures to come. And in the midst of the organising, there were boxes of old photographs, love letters, old receipts. These receipts held the stories of our past selves, films we saw and dinners we ate, that time he surprised me with lobster & molten chocolate lava cakes delivered for Valentine’s Day; flights we took and hotels we stayed at, that afternoon in Chicago when we stopped in at a delicatessen for a baguette and serrano, a bottle of prosecco for an afternoon picnic. I remember that place you would say — I remember that afternoon when we had a picnic. At times like these, the words of Anne Frank echo in the air, “Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.”

Be well & hold those you love extra tightly, Roséline xo
