Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links


Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 23.01.17
THERE IS A NEW coffee place that we had been meaning to visit across town, and Sundays always seems like the perfect day for these types of things. It is a rather overcast day, so the promise of a cosy café sounds perfect. We take the long way, meandering about new neighbourhoods, and even stopping at a new Ostrarium to chat briefly with the owner in the only common language amongst us, French. We’ve only been open since November he says. We’re on the way for coffee at the moment, but perhaps we could stop by another day, I offer. (It looks lovely inside and I can’t wait.) When we finally arrive at the café, it is enormous and strung in fairy lights. Most of the tables are already filled, families having late-day brunch and girls with laptops looking for salads. We order cortados and linger, P reading a Spanish newspaper and I sipping my coffee and contemplating carrot cake. We do order the cake, more coffee and something to eat, talking all the while about life and the future and politics and what it means to be happy. It’s a perfect Sunday, as far as Sundays go.

Happy Monday and hope it’s beautiful wherever in the world you may be,
Roséline xo
