12 things: Smell the roses

Time to smell all the lovely roses - as promised.
Number 8 on my list of 12 things for 2012 was simply to smell the roses. I originally meant it figuratively (ie. to slow down, take it easy and appreciate things for what they are), but somehow, I started to literally smell roses. Only because I really really love the scent.I've been using my 12 things as an excuse to act like a crazy rose lady. Every time I see a rose, I have to have a sniff - this works out a tad embarrassing for Stu who sometimes pretends not to know me. But I'm pretty nonchalant to these things. Just leave me and my roses alone, and I will be happy.

Have you ever tried (Burt's Bees Rosewater and Glycerin Toner)
I got it as a gift and love it. My face smells like rose petals before I go to sleep.

Roses are always lovely. If I'd see someone smelling every rose she sees, I'll be happy that she takes time to appreciate the beauty of nature and I think it's pretty normal to see girls smelling roses :)

Keep your moment with roses, they'll kiss you back with constant beauty :)))
