I have given my husband strict orders to never buy me flowers on Valentine’s Day. I think it’s ridiculous that the same flower if purchased the day before or the day after is triple the cost on one day every year. Don’t get me wrong….I love flowers, and when he brings them home as a surprise from time to time, it’s the best thing in the world. I just don’t want them on Valentine’s Day.
So, the other night, in walks my 6-year-old with a bouquet that’s almost bigger than him! My husband is so good. He surprised me two days before the forbidden Valentine’s Day. Check out my very pretty bouquet!
I am the luckiest girl in the world to have a husband who is so caring that even with practicality and almost 10 years of marriage behind us, he still gives me the sweetest gestures and little surprises. To me, that is as romantic as you can get, and as we celebrate our family’s love tomorrow, I stand by my mantra: “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers.” It is also my song of the day…though I will admit, the song means something completely different in its context. Barbara Streisand and Neil Diamond sang this song with such sorrow and about breaking up, and I am intending it in a completely opposite way: you don’t need to bring me flowers, because I still know you love me. Click HERE to go to Youtube to hear Babs and Neil sing their version, and please know that on this Valentine’s Day, I am perfectly happy with my 2-day old flowers. They suit me just right.
