Stop and Smell the Roses

“Stop and smell the roses.” How many times have we heard that quote and said to ourselves that we are going to slow down and relax but seldom do? I have been guilty of this many times before but the older I get I have learned to relax and enjoy life a bit more especially when I travel. When you slow down, you can experience more, see more and have a more enjoyable time. There is nothing worse than coming back from a vacation exhausted. Or feeling that way while on your vacation.

I know it is tempting to see everything when you travel, but it is impossible. Remember it is the simple things that make life special and create lasting memories that will live in our hearts forever. When you are on your next travel adventure, try to slow down so you can appreciate your surroundings and notice the beauty around you.

Here are some of nature’s most beautiful flowers that I have been able to enjoy over the years and get to share with each of you.


“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way. ”

Walter Hagen
