We recently returned from a two-week trip to Ireland. It was early September and we knew fall would soon be settling in. So I was surprised to see so many flowers in full bloom.
We had visited during this time of year on our very first trip, our honeymoon. I am pretty sure I was so enamored with the massive beauty that is the country of Ireland that I must not have taken notice of all the little things around me.
This time I made a distinct effort to soak it all in. It has been a difficult year personally and professionally and I was looking forward to this trip more than I ever. I knew that those couple of weeks would fly by and I would soon be back to my daily routine.
I was adamant about capturing everything—even the little things, especially the flowers.
It was as if I was trying to bottle it all up. The colors, the smells, and what I felt during those moments of complete and utter freedom from stress, illness and loss.
Now that we are back, I look at these pictures, and I am thankful for their joyful display and their vibrant colors. They cheer me.
Do they cheer you too?
