I love finding joy and excitement in the little things. Right now little things mean a lot. It doesn't take much to brighten my day and right now...I am loving flowers!!!
Last Thursday I was at my parents' house and I could not help but notice that everything from the roses to the pansies looked AMAZING!!!
There was one rose in particular that stood out. It looked like everything that I have ever imagined the enchanted rose in Disney's Beauty and the Beast to be. The biggest, most beautiful rose I have ever seen in real life...
It was as big as my hand and it's reddish pink petals glistened in the afternoon sunlight. As I moved closer to take this picture with my phone the sweet smell was intoxicating. Simply put, it was MAGICAL!!! I had to have it. I picked it and shared it with my mom. I knew she would love it too.
Today I took my camera with me to decorate graves at the Lehi City Cemetery and decided after that I would go back to Mom and Dad's to take some more pictures. Here are a couple of the shots that I ended up with. The two on the top are from the yard and the two on the bottom from the cemetery.
I HOPE THAT YOU WILL ALL TAKE A MINUTE OUT OF YOUR DAY TO SMELL THE ROSES OR TO ENJOY YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER BLOOMS!!!
