I love flowers!

If I could afford to I would probably buy myself a fresh bouquet of flowers everyday. One of my oldest and dearest friends who I've known since 1986 sent me the most beautiful flowers for my 39th birthday -- I think they were from 1-800-FLOWERS, but I can't remember. But I do remember the first time he sent me flowers -- or I guess I should say a flower -- in 1992.

I received the cutest little padded envelope in the mail less than a year after my first daughter was born. I opened it up to find a nice pink carnation.

It was the sweetest thing I had ever seen. And the most squished I'd ever seen!

You see my friend didn't really think through the actual mailing of the flower. It never dawned on him that the flower may get squished. To this day I tease him about it so when he sent me flowers on my birthday I had to say, "They arrived so nicely... and packaged so prettily!"

"You're never gonna let me live that down, are you?"

Of course not! What are friends for?

Well, I don't know when I'm going to get any flowers from someone so I think I'll check out 1-800-FLOWERS; they're having a couple of nice little promotions (especially for that day I'm not so fond of!). Right now you can Buy 1 dozen Red Roses, get 1 dozen FREE! plus FREE Vase! exp. 2.3.08. That's a great deal to me!

So, if you're like me and love flowers, treat yourself to some today.
