Flowers on Friday!

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.


  1. I love the proverb and the flowers! They are gorgeous! What a great tradition to have with your husband. Rituals are what keep marriages together, and what woman doesn't love flowers?

  2. HOW very sweet of your husband! I LOVE that proverb, I haven't heard it before! I love having fresh flowers, I don't get to do it often but I LOVE when I can! Right now, I'm getting FREE bouquets from my hydrangeas! LOVE that!

    Thanks for your sweet comment about houzz. That sweet table area is just perfection! I help some friends occassionally with decor that's why I have it in a couple different idea books if you are wondering (plus my own because I just love it!)

  3. Thanks, truth be told I just can't get enough flowers! I'm sure it is good for our marriage, you can't be mad at someone who brings you flowers!

    Thanks Robyn I've been a fan of yours since I started following blogs last year!! It means alot that you added something I did!!! :)

  4. How sweet of your hubby! That little tradition means so much!

  5. Awww, your husband is as sweet as mine. I know the feeling. I love when he brings me flowers. He does it once a month, sometimes twice. I love flowers especially roses and orchids but sometimes I do think it's a bit of a waste of money and when they die I feel horrible. But 1.I don't want to be ungrateful. and 2.Hey!, he spends money in other unnecesary stuff so why not flowers for me? lol


We're here to lend an ear,
So leave a word and you'll be heard!
