Lavender Love, originally uploaded by joyful.life.

Somedays you just have to stop and smell the lavender. To inhale. To exhale. Touch the soft aromatic leaves. Then relax.

I find it hard to cross paths with a lavender bush without stopping to take a moment. Sometimes I wish I would cross them more often...just to have an excuse to slow down.

Is there anything in your life that makes you stop and breathe, think, smile, or relax? If so, do tell!

For now, I'm going to print this lovely photo and post it at my desk. A simple reminder to stop, breathe, and enjoy the moment.
