Currently, a weekend of simplicity is being enjoyed at chez simply luxurious. Yesterday, the rain drizzled steadily from morning to afternoon which prompted a spontaneous smile from ear to ear upon waking. After a leisurely breakfast, I attended a favorite yoga class, returned home for a bit of work tending to the upcoming book release, and then stepped into a nice hot bath followed by dinner of Chicken Marsala. Today looks to be quite similar, and I couldn’t be more elated as I will be planting the spring daffodil bulbs which arrived from Floret Flowers. Knowing that such beauty is just around the corner when we are stepping out of winter, makes the waiting all the more worthwhile.
After hearing a little French jazz on the radio as I was making a omelette yesterday morning, I was inspired to compile a new playlist for the blog.
Earlier this year I shared three different playlists via Spotify: Classical Music, Escape to France and Everyday Jazz. In an effort to welcome more tranquility into my everydays from when I wake up, when I commute, when I am working away at the computer or taking a beckoning bubble bath at the end of a full day, I have found them to be dependable and offerings of many of the melodies I think of or seek out when I want to create a relaxing, yet welcoming space for creativity and enjoyment.
To hear the quintessential French cafe music is to hear an accordion, a lively, happy violin, a playful beat, or a steady piano melody paired with a snare drum to keep the rhythm moving along to inspire dreams of Paris and France as a whole. I purposely compiled a list of songs without lyrics to create the space for vast dreaming and remembering of our own desires and memories as each is unique to the listener.
Below find TSLL’s French Cafe Jazz (no lyrics) playlist, and enjoy luxuriating in your everydays a little bit more, all the while dreaming of France and your next trip to the country that forever inspires simply luxurious living. (Follow @thesimplyluxuriouslife on Spotify to enjoy all of the playlists that have been created this year.)
