My day job involves working with people who are in crisis, and it’s important for me to make sure I’m doing self-care. One of the ways I renew myself is to spend time outside, enjoying the natural beauty of the world around me. There’s nothing I love more than surrounding myself with flowers, plants, and animals.
When a friend of mine visited, we went to the Desert Botanical Gardens, and they had the butterfly exhibit, which was amazing. I got a ton of pictures, but mostly I just stopped to watch and enjoy. There were so many butterflies that I felt them brushing up against me. It was an incredible experience.
