hello, busy.

did spring bring an extra amount of busyness to anyone else?
i feel like i am treading to keep my head above water.
i have "to-do lists" coming out of every pocket, purse and calendar.
i have chores piling up due to lack of being able to get them done.
homework is stacking up by the minute.
rehearsals at dance are never-ending. we are in crunch time.
spring is busy.
are you with me?
i am suddenly learning to manage my time differently.
i'm discovering what needs to be my priority rather than 
choosing what i think should be a priority.
i'm accepting the fact that i have to let go of being a perfectionist
in order to get everything done.
{i struggle with this one}
i'm watching time pass as if it never happened;
where do all the hours of the day go?
but through all of this busyness,
i am taking time to smell the flowers, quite literally.
it is a gorgeous time of year in it's entirety. 
the hustle and bustle of spring time paired with
the breathtaking beauty of nature. 
spring is beautiful even when busy.
and that is something i need to be reminded of as i feel busyness overcome me.
spring is such a beautiful season, that is over in the blink of an eye.
 let's embrace it's beauty.
even if that means embracing the busyness of it too.

p.s. today is the last day to enter this giveaway!!
winner will be announced tomorrow. 


  1. I hear ya! I'm so busy and feel like I do is work right now!

  2. I agree wholeheartedly. Spring has been crazy busy for me and it's only going to get crazier. It's too short of a season, with winter encroaching on one end and summer on the other, I feel like the poor season is just rushed right along. I hope you get some chances to have some quiet times and some deep breathes and you're able to enjoy this pretty season!

  3. Yes, the times are going by so faaast! But I kind of like it :)


  4. Yes! I have a lot of big life events going on and it seems like there is never enough time in the day. I'm also working on prioritizing. Just because my phone beeped does not mean I need to answer that text, FB MSG, or Tweet right away - its hard!!


  5. Preach it! :) I'm right there with you in letting go of my perfectionist tendencies during this busy time! Spring is just too lovely to miss out on it! :)

  6. Last week in my house, was especially busy. I feel ya!

  7. Spring has been NUTS for me as well! I'm fighting to fit in the things that normally fit in easily! It's no good. But it makes you appreciate the really lazy, lovely days even more!

  8. it's true! even though life can get busy, we can be happier when we soak in the beauty around us. good luck!
    xoxo, great little day

  9. and every person on earth has the exact amount of time.

  10. Um, yes! Spring has brought FAR too many things to get done. But, it's okay. "Actively engaged in a good cause, right?"
    On another note, I am right there with you. I am a huge perfectionist. I need to remember that there are some things I need to let go of in order to get everything done.

  11. things have to die down at some point. god only gives you as much as you can handle. :) you'll get through it.


  12. I'm sorry that you are so busy, hopefully it will get better soon. Good thing that you are remembering to take time to smell the flowers :)

  13. I am with ya, life is just so busy right now! Good for you for taking the time to "smell the flowers" I need to remember that. Lovely post!

  14. completely understand you! my 'to do list' is every day more bigger.. uf :)
