{hope you've had a beautiful weekend & a few lovely links}

. . . friday was spent back in the city for errands and storage units and the post office and such; then a warehouse amidst boxes and last-minute labels, shipping containers and a thousand miles; and after forty-eight boxes of our things [mostly books and shoes, and mostly mine], it can it certain that p is the very best ever, [although of that, there was never any doubt]; and so, after all the commotion, the rest of the weekend was spent listening to the sound of the falling rain, glasses of wine and firelight . . .

hope you've had a beautiful late-october weekend and that it was beautiful where you are, —roséline xo

{great love story № 21 | robert browning & elizabeth barrett}

castle

Poetic love letters, a courtship, and loving one another until their dying day are but a rarity in today’s age, so a romance that combines all three must certainly be a great love story; although not the knight in shining armour of a young girl's imagination, Robert Browning was Elizabeth Barrett’s hero, metaphorically sweeping her off her feet, loving and holding her until her dying breath.

browning3

Elizabeth Barrett, born on March 6 1806, in County Durham, England, was an extraordinary child with a thirst for knowledge. Infatuated by Greek, English and Roman literature, she began writing poetry at the age of six and never stopped.

At fifteen, Elizabeth suffered a disease of the nervous system, for which medical science of the time was unable to diagnose, although many believed to be tuberculosis.  The disease caused Elizabeth to become frail and weak and suffer terribly in the colder months, causing here to be largely secluded to her room, where she would write and read constantly. Other than her family, she saw very few visitors.

roses

As Elizabeth’s work began to be published, her success and fame grew, and by the time her 1844 volume, Poems, was published, she was one of the most popular writers in the country.  A long time aficionado, Robert Browning, finally decided to write a ‘fan letter’ of sorts to Elizabeth, the first few lines of which read . . .

. . . and in all the busy-ness last week, there was not a chance to celebrate a very special event : last week marked the one year anniversary of sarah's enchanting series, {take me away} -- one year since the very first article, perfectly packed, was published, along with a useful [& downloadable] packing list -- and since then, there have been castles and rose gardens and extravagant silks, farmhouses and lighthouses and fields of lavender; champagne and lace, and an unforgettable glimpse at st. petersburg, and many other astonishingly beautiful cities along the way . . .
