Stop and look/smell the flowers. :)

May 9, 2017 2:04am CST
It's very rare for my fiancé & I to go grocery shopping in the evening, but we switched up our schedules a little today! Since we had a late lunch, by the time we went grocery shopping - we weren't in a rush to go home & eat. We were both full so, we even had time to stop by and look at all the beautiful flowers, browse the store without adding anything extra into our basket! The other day, I was commenting on a myLotters post about how it's already May ~ time is definitely passing by fast so definitely take a few seconds of your day/time and stop to smell the flowers, embrace nature, be happy! It is currently midnight here in California - good night! I will catch up on notifications when I log back on!

@TRBRocks420 I don't often stop by the floral section but I like to when I have a chance. I don't often buy flowers since they die though but for special occasions I do.

@TRBRocks420 Do you pass by a lot of wild flowers on your walks?

I always browse the flowers when I grocery shop, because I am constantly buying flowers for my girlfriend. She has a beautiful vase of flowers at her apartment that I keep full of fresh flowers all the time. As old flowers began to wilt, I'll pull them out and add new ones in, so that she has a never-ending bouquet of flowers!

@infatuatedbby sometimes it's easy to say and harder to do but it is what gets me out of rough situations if I am sad I go find my baby niece and pick her up she has a way of curing my sadness with her little smile

I have known to do evening grocery shopping from time to time, but I prefer to do it during the day.

I do take the time to stop and look at the flowers, but unfortunately, I lost my sense of smell and therefore, can not smell them. Bummer!

I seldom go out at night. There are many things for me to do at home. But you are still young and you shall go out at night more often. One day the life will be different

It is summer season here and flowers do bloom but they fade away by the evening. It is always a pleasure to be near flowers and nature.
