Stop and Smell the Roses!

I'm heading to the Botanic Gardens in Chicago today. I can't think of a better way to start my weekend and to remind me to stop and smell the roses.  

I'm especially cognisant of that these days as a very special guy who has been in my life for a long time is moving away a week from today.
So, I'm trying to soak up and enjoy every moment I can while he is still here. I'm looking forward to just spending the day with him in the gardens :)

Happy Friday! See you Monday! xoxo Crystal

We all need a warm, gentle breeze, a birch canopy bed, and sun-lit-vase-chandelier.
Be well. Live well.

I agree! A table setting like the last one in a garden or my own would be heavenly!
