Ben tells me Friday night, as we're making dinner, that he has to ruin my surprise. Uhh... Ok?
He explains to me that he was going to order me flowers for Valentine's day like he did last year.
But unfortunately, by the time he went to order them the other day, the bouquet that I loved so much last year was sold out. So he decided that instead of getting me a different one, we would go to Home Depot and I could pick out some live flowers! He figured I would like that best anyways, since I have been wanting flowers so badly.
Yes! Best Valentine's gift ever. I told him it was so much nicer this way because they would stay around for longer than a week and I could enjoy them.
So we went to Home Depot and he let me pick whatever I wanted. We got daffodils, tulips, a package each of yellow pansies and purple pansies...
And these, which are my favorite. They are Violas and I just love their little faces. They look like they have little whiskers. I wish you could see from the photo, but it's just not clear enough, how perfect those little lines are. They look like they've been painted on one by one.
I hope your Valentine's Day turns out as wonderfully sweet as my early one did!
P.S. This is going to count as my 365 for the day. And I'm starting to think that maybe that 365 goal is not such a good one. Starting to hate taking pictures because I have to do it every day is not so much fun and kind of kills the point.
