When I last had a moment to myself (that'd be Friday evening) these potted tulips were still closed.
The three of us ran around like mad things all weekend as there was so much on. No complaints. It was lovely to catch up with friends and help celebrate birthdays. Wouldn't change a thing.
What the flowers reminded me of, though, is that down-time is also important. Having time to appreciate the small moments in life that are easily missed if you're always rushing. Taking a moment to sniff the roses, or, in this case, tulips.
As rejuvenating as sunshine in a cup.
Small Things Simple Pleasures
