Happy Spring Everyone!
My favorite time of year is Fall, however Spring is a close second. The beauty of the world being reborn, inspires me in so many ways, yet, at times cause some bittersweet memories. I look forward to all of the flowers blooming but one stands out above all, my lilac bush. The sweet smell transports me back to a kid, where I would climb up in our lilac bush and escape reality for awhile. For those moments I could dream without being disturbed and hope that one day I would be able to live out my life a bit simpler than the hardship I was going in those days.
The ups and downs that mold you as an adult, can sometimes postpone those dreams. Yet, after many years behind me, I am finally able to live a dream or two. I never gave up on them, even in some of my darkest hours.
Who knew that a lilac bush could nurture and inspire someone in that way. From a simple flower, I take its fragrance and associate it to some of my most happiest times, as well as, some of the saddest. Yet, I always go back to it and savor every moment of its blooms.
