Flower Power Friday
Friday is my flower day. Ok, that's a big lie. Everyday is a flower day for me, but Friday is my big flower shopping day. I have an addiction which I am in no hurry to recover from. I am on a first name basis with most of the florists in East Vancouver, I am shamelessly in love with flowers. To be fair, I'm shameless about most things.
Flowers need not be expensive to be enjoyable. One of my favourite things to do is simply buy a few carnations or a bunch of mums and divide them into mason jars all over our house. For $6 you can feel instant spring in your home. I know it may sound rather elementary, but on days you feel that little black cloud is following you everywhere it makes for a pleasant pick me up.
So today on your way home pick yourself up some flowers, or buy some for a friend. Daffodils are great this time a year and are usually only $1.99. It really is the small things that make a difference, and while I wouldn't turn down a diamond tiara, the times someone has shown up with flowers at my front door I truly feel my heart blossom. On that very cheesy note (hopefully you're not lactose intolerant), I leave you to a beautiful weekend!
