Stop And Smell The Roses…

We are certain that many of you have heard the expression “Stop and smell the roses…” .  Are you aware that the correct quote is …”Stop and smell the flowers…”? The original quote is attributed to golfer extraordinaire Walter Hagen:

“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way. ” 1956 The Walter Hagen Story

Regardless of the flora mentioned in the quote the idea is to appreciate your surroundings; take time to  notice the beauty around you. Slow down!

This week those3chicks have chosen to heed this advice. We are taking a wee break and smelling as many flowers as we can . Our regular blog posts will return next Tuesday. In the mean time we encourage you to take a moment and enjoy your surroundings, slow down and smell the flowers…
