Friendly ladybug on new blooms

A warm start to early summer and a short stroll through the neighborhood. It's amazing how little things can change your overall attitude, such as taking a walk. This ladybug reminded me to slow down and take in the little things that life has to offer because it can be so beautiful and under-appreciated.
