...to smell the roses.
It's been so hectic around our household lately, with birthdays, celebrations, visits, deadlines, and such that today while strolling around the 'hood with the little one I actually stopped to smell the roses. Well, this one to be exact:
So sweet and fragrant. I really hope the owner of the roses didn't think I was some creeper with a stroller stalking her/him. It was so refreshing and such a perfect moment that I had to smell it again. Then I headed home.
Smelling that rose made me think about all the things that were coming up, all the stuff that I was planning on doing, and all the events that will be taking place this summer. Not to mention, I still have that problem/thought about what to do when my maternity leave is over, as I've talked about in this post that's still lingering in all my thoughts (hence all the stuff that I have planned to do...what a vicious cycle!).
I promised myself, once I reached the steps to my house, to once a week stop and take a breather. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and just sit outside and stare into the sky...
