Earlier this month I met a friend for lunch and a walk around the Macy’s Flower Show (http://carpediemwithjasmine.com/the-macys-flower-show/). It was a nice afternoon treat to catch-up with my friend and to see, smell and EXPERIENCE all of the BEAUTIFUL flowers. I’ve always been drawn to flowers and keep fresh flowers in my home. I believe that my affinity for flowers is innate since Jasmine is a flower. At the end of the flower show there was a little gift shop where I purchased (and in my mind started a purchasing trend) a beautiful hanging Jasmine plant.
My CARPE DIEM moment for this week was arriving home yesterday morning (after a really intense week) to a wonderful sweet aromatic home. I instantly thought, “my plugins are really working!” Then I walked into my living room and I saw my dehydrated Jasmine plant in full bloom sitting on an end table. I had forgotten all about the plant (that quick) but it didn’t foget me and it provided me with the most pleasant welcome home Jasmine treat! What a wonderful way to unwind from a crazy week and CARPE DIEM to take a moment to just sit and enjoy the beautiful aroma!
How did you Carpe Diem today and/or this week?
