Tulip Festival // Thoughts on Spring

Earth laughs in flowers. 
-Ralph Waldo Emerson





Bloom where you are planted. 

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. One of my best friends posted this quote a few weeks ago and it has caused me to sit back and reflect on the beauty around me. I am always on the go and looking for the next adventure. But some of the best adventures are right around me, or right next to me. I have so much to be grateful for namely my husband, an amazing job, and endless opportunity. 

Thank you, Spring. For showing me that as scary and hard as change can be, it can also be beautiful. 

April is one of my favorite months of the year...if only for all of the flowers. April Showers bring May Flowers? Or April Flowers? Either way, I will take it. I love strolling through Temple Square in the morning amidst all of the pretty tulips. Someday, I will travel to the Netherlands for the Tulip Festival :)

If you have been thinking about going to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point, GO! If you haven't been thinking about it, still go. I promise you will love it. #tuliperfection

If these pictures have not convinced you yet, just keep scrolling. I was trying to limit myself on the number of photos but...I couldn't help myself. Too beautiful. I love capturing the beauty of these moments through photos.

Musts:
-Secret Garden (my favoriteeee!)
-Italian Garden
-Waterfalls
-Vista Garden
-And to end, make sure you walk through the lanterns, 
on the pathway close to the Italian Gardens

And if you can make it work, go in the middle of the day on a weekday or even late afternoon/early evening. The crowds were insane on Saturday! #worthit
