We find ourselves on the other side of the sunshine, away most days indoors and looking out onto the brilliance of blooms and changing colors as spring makes its way into the world. But for the few walks we permit ourselves to take during this eventful season, we savor each step and absorb as much beauty along each mile as we can. It may not be a far jaunt, but the freshness of air and lightness of the world around us in the warm weather becomes the best moment of the day.
It’s with these sentiments in mind that we can’t help ourselves feeling like the heroines of classic novels read before, and we couldn’t help but think of these few quotes from their authors:
“Have regular hours for work and play;
make each day both useful and pleasant,
and prove that you understand the worth
of time by employing it well.
Then youth will bring few regrets,
and life will become a beautiful success.” – Louisa May Alcott
“They are much to be pitied who have not been given a taste for nature early in life.” – Jane Austen
“That is one good thing about this world… there are always sure to be more springs.” – L.M. Montgomery
“If you look the right way, you can see that the world is a garden.” – Frances Hodgson Burnett
So we hope that each one of you can find a moment to steal away from the quiet of your home out into the great and comforting sights of spring in the world. In love with what you see on your daily walks? Share with us on Instagram your adventures using the hashtag #MarjorieStroll!
