Taking Time to Stop and Smell the...Cherry Blossoms

I've always read about how delicious cherry blossoms smell. Now I have my own tree, and it kind of reeks. Maybe I have the wrong kind of cherry tree. Who knows. But it's still pretty, right? I love the rising sun in the background, causing the petals to look translucent.

I'm trying to remember to take the time to enjoy life's little pleasures (even if they're kind of stinky) and not get so caught up in the craziness, the challenges, the little annoyances that seem so much bigger than the pretty flowers that balance it all out and make life just that much more wonderful.

Happy Tuesday, folks. We're 2/5 of the way to the weekend!


  1. Cherry blossoms are the PRETTIEST to look at, but yeah, you're so right: they don't smell too great! haha At least they look good, right?


  2. Yea, cherry blossoms are extremely pretty. And every other house on our street has them, so it's kind of like a pretty pink trail through the neighborhood. We'll just concentrate on that and not the stink...or the mess they make everywhere. lol
