Comfortably Casual Cut-Offs At The Brooklyn Botanical Garden


Around here, we ardently believe in the importance and the power of spending just as much time in taking a respite as we spend working and socializing. It's this tenet that inspired us to spend half a day exploring almost every corner, tree, and flower of the Brooklyn Botanical Garden last weekend. Some of you might have gotten a sneak peek here. This was my first time to visit the garden and it was the perfect escape that we needed. Being cocooned in this urban sanctuary strewn with more than 12,000 species of plants and trees on a hot humid summer day made us feel as if we were in a far away place from this "concrete jungle of NYC". The magnificent, colorful flowers and flowering shrubs, trees and their strong fragrance provided us with a spectacular treat for the nostrils and boosted our well-being. For us, living a happier life means taking time to stop and enjoy every moment that we get. Never underestimate the power of a respite.
