“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” — Ashley Smith

I recently had the chance to visit family in the DC metro area. One of my favorite parts of the trip was taking daily walks around the neighborhood.

This area has such charming neighborhoods, perfect for a stroll at any time of day.

What I love most about my mom’s neighborhood are the gorgeous tree-lined streets. These tall, striking trees provide plenty of shade and add so much character and beauty to the area. There’s something so peaceful about walking under their canopy.

The sound of birds singing is always a lovely addition to my walks. I especially enjoy hearing their melodies early in the morning or at dusk. Surprisingly, even the gentle hum of traffic is calming in its own way, like a soothing white noise.
