You see, Valentine’s Day is a big occasion for making those sweetheart
than any other day of the year to show us how much they care.
Heart shaped chocolates in pretty red and pink boxes.
Diamonds, Tiffany’s jewelry or maybe even a new handbag
with all those pretty blooming beauties that talk to me every day at the market.
Oh they definitely talk to me just the same and just as loudly as always…
double or triple
Of course I do- roses are some of my favorite flowers but I almost always them all behind
during the first part of February.
I like to think of living romantically as something that happens all year long
rather than just one day of the year.
And I am lucky to enjoy fresh flowers in my home year round
for photography and styling projects
and yes, my husband does bring them home on occasion during the year as well.
So the other night I reminded him that he doesn’t need to pick up roses
at the market to be romantic.
If he wants to – of course, I will love them and enjoy them.
But I don’t feel he needs to pay 3x more than he should have
because he is guilted into it.
(incidentally, I am happy to guilt him into something else if he would like…
like…maybe that antique mirror I have my eye on)
I would rather celebrate our love with a romantic getaway, a date night
or even notching off a long standing project around the house
which is definitely a way to say I love you, right?
Anyway, as my flower department girl and I were chatting about the roses in my cart the other day
and what else was coming in soon- she quietly tipped me off
that this weekend was when those Valentine’s roses prices were going up.
So, Flower Market Friday tips this week:
If you need/want roses in the next week- go NOW and get them.
Tomorrow they will likely be much higher in price.
For the next 2 weeks avoid temptation to pay more for roses than you need to…
unless you simply cannot stop yourself.
they are coming home with me.
Hope your weekend is off to a great start!
And on a side note:
I am aware of the many issues with Feedburner, comments and what not right now
and I do apologize. It is frustrating the you know what out of me.
Working on a few things behind the scenes trying to get things figured out
for smooth sailing again.
