Belated and Beautiful…

They arrived! Monday evening my Valentine’s Day flowers got here…and a box of chocolates (not that I could eat them as they were really chocolate covered pretzels, but the kids loved them so…meh, it’s all good. Just means I get a free pass for chocolate some time right?) I love that some years Neil gives me live flowers that I can enjoy for at least a few months. Every now and then, though, I really like a bouquet of cut flowers. Not only do I get fancier varieties, but it is already understood that they are dead. Live flowers are a commitment, a new responsibility to attend to. This year I just get to enjoy my beautiful flowers and know that, Yes, they will die, and No, I didn’t kill them.
