Day 55 – A Picture A Day While My Soldier’s Away

We’ve all heard the cliche – “Take time to smell the roses”. I guess it means to slow down and take in your surroundings, appreciate things. I’ve never put much thought into it really until today. I loved the beautiful roses you sent me for our anniversary. They’ve been sitting in the vase on our table since Tuesday, on display of course. Kylie’s been asking about them over and over again – she’s obsessed with the roses. What are they called? Where did they come from? Why are they all different colors? Can I touch them? NO! Don’t touch! That’s always my response. I wondered why? I felt terrible for not encouraging her to explore her curiosities, so today we did. We pulled them all out – touched them, played with them, took pictures of them, and most importantly, we took the time to smell them
