This is the first installment of Flowers on Friday. I am a very lucky girl with a very sweet husband who brings flowers home on each payday, twice a month. I really don’t know how it started, but I’m not going to risk questioning it. It’s extra nice, because Lee picks them out for me and try’s very hard to get a different bouquet each and every time. I have no idea how I got this lucky but again, I’m not going to risk it by asking too many questions.
When people find out I receive flowers every two weeks their first reaction is shock and awe, and their second reaction is “what a waste of money”. What they don’t realize is that each bouquet costs under $10, and from each $10 bouquet I make one medium bouquet and at least one little bouquet, sometimes two.
There is a chinese proverb that goes:
“When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one and a lily with the other.”
Thankfully we have more then two pennies left in the world but I still love the sentiment.
