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…
