March || mixtape 05

march playlist on beetleandfig.com
 

this time of year always hold so much hope.
the days are starting to linger on longer.
the air holds a little bit of sweet aroma
& that fresh breeze brushes past our faces every few days.
our bones are weary & longing for the long winter to end.
& just when we feel like giving up in the midst of those weary, cold days,
a sunny day appears. reminding us to hold on. spring is on the horizon.
