springtime: a musing

There's something about sitting outside on a worn wooden bench and rolling a fallen flower petal between your fingers that truly embodies spring.

Enclosed in a limestone courtyard, the sky is a quiet blue gently sponged with soft whites. The tree branches overhead sway with tame wind gusts and drop petals around. I wore my hair down to feel the wind rustle through the strands, not minding when they get tangled up by my pearl earrings.

Today was such a fantastic day. I'm so glad it's spring already. To me, this season epitomizes simple happiness. Days like this, I think I'll never leave Austin.


  1. Sounds like the perfect day and an amazing space.

  2. Those spring blossoms are so pretty. Anytime I can sit and ponder is a pretty place is enjoyable.

  3. Oh my dear, I lived in Georgetown, right above Austin, for a number of sweaty, humidity-drenched years...!!! Enjoy your lovely spring, though!!!
