Celebrate Spring: Washington D.C. Cherry Blossoms
I am very thankful that I live in area that experiences four distinct seasons, as seasonal change is always a time of reflection for me. As March draws to a close and spring kicks into full gear, I am reminded to do a quarter year check-in. Am I growing? What lessons have I learned over the last three months? Am I on track with the goals I laid out in January? How can I improve this quarter? Spring is a great reminder to let go of what happened in winter, to look forward, and to grow!
Last week I had the immense privilege of being in Washington D.C. for the peak bloom of the cherry blossom trees. This year holds special significance as it is the centennial celebration of the gift of the cherry blossoms from Japan. Beyond the layer of whimsy that the blossoms added to the city, the scent was unbelievable! It was a wonderful feeling to close my eyes, take a deep breath of the blooms, and feel the cool breeze of spring. Happy Spring!
