|Stop and smell the roses|
Our friend John was taking care of Mike's house last week, and he commented that he stopped to smell the fragrant roses on his way in the house.
I know how nature can transport us to a quieter place, and so here is a brief tour of my recent wanderings through the outdoors.

My camera and flowers are a delightful respite from an extremely busy and stressful time at my house. Between multiple contractors, cleaning up ever-settling tile dust and lots of house showings, Mike and I are fried! It was a sign of the times that both of us forgot our 4th wedding anniversary last week. Oops!
So we are taking a break to breathe and forget about remodeling. Yesterday and today I got in some great neighborhood walks. Mike enjoyed steak and beer at Boys Night Out. I had a great dinner with Melanie and then met up with Mike and Chuck for a few beers on the patio of a local restaurant. Hanging with friends is a wonderful way to stop and smell the roses!
