Our Vision

Attention Flowers! helps our community and friends bring themselves back to the present moment to connect with their goals, dreams, joys, and the people around them, and by doing so improve their lives and our world.

Our Motto

“Pause, Breathe, and Smell the Roses.”

Similar to the classic phrase “Stop and smell the roses”, Our motto differs in that we understand that it is difficult for most of us to just “stop”. Instead, we focus on pausing whenever we can to take a moment to be mindful and appreciate the world around us because even small steps can lead to big successes.

2022 is the Inaugural Year for Attention Flowers!
