Triggered Smells.

Did you know that being pregnant has shown to enhance sense of smell?? Yesterday, the wind blew while I was under a tree on my elementary campus. It smelled just like spring. I shut my eyes and took a deep breath in. For just a moment, I forgot that the sun wasn't out; I forgot that the weatherman said it was overcast and 50% chance of rain. I smelled yellow honeysuckle flowers, and little caterpillars hanging from the tree. Oh, Spring. How I miss you. Damn you, Puxatony Phil, for predicting six more weeks of winter. Until then, I will leave it to the new heightened sense of smell.

Did you know that being pregnant has shown to enhance sense of smell?? After school was over yesterday, I got into my car and for some odd reason, my car smelled like the pink bubble gum medicine you are given as a small child. Do you remember the doctor prescribing that?? Gosh, I love the smell of childhood - that is one of the best smells ever.

  1. When I was pregnant with Payton, a coworker was eating lunch at her desk... I asked if it was a Buffalo Chicken salad and it was! I could literally smell the watery lettuce across 2 cubes!

  2. "Damn you, Puxatony Phil, for predicting six more weeks of winter." - That sentence made me laugh out loud. :)
