Anniversary Flowers


Anniversary Flowers

Today is our 8th Anniversary. It's hard to believe it has been 8 years and yet at the same time, I can't really remember my life without my husband. He is my companion and my best friend. Not only did our anniversary land on a Wednesday, our friends from central California happened to be in town tonight. So, we put our celebration on hold until this weekend. Or at least I thought we had...

On our way to dinner tonight, I was surprised by this beautiful arrangement: there are daisies because they are pretty, a carnation because it smells good, 8 flowers - 1 for ever year, and 8 different flowers because each year has represented a different time in our lives, with different experiences and changes. What was funny is that the flower lady kept trying to give him another flower - to make it an odd number and more balanced. She even told him she wouldn't charge for it - but he was like, it has to be 8 - that's the point.

It still amazes me to see how utterly romantic my brother can be. Not that I don't think he's capable of that, but you just don't tend to think of your brother that way. What a catch! I mean, there was even thought in the type of flowers and the number and everything. Most guys would have just snagged some roses and sprinted to the cash register. Very sweet.
