Bouquet #3: Baby’s Breath & Orange Carnations

One of my five main 2017 goals was to have a weekly bouquet of fresh flowers for me. In the past, I’ve told my husband not to buy me flowers, shrugging off the gesture as a waste. I see though how this small “luxury” though tells me I am worth something, I am worthy to have beauty like this. So I’m doing a goal of weekly flowers to see if something changes within me, opens me somehow.

For Christmas, my mother gave me this beautiful crystal pitcher that we had found thrifting one day. She talked of how beautiful it would as a vase and catch the light. This vase itself is a declaration of a kind for me. I am worthy of such elegance.


The last bouquet stayed lovely for quite awhile. Yesterday, I purchased one of my favorite florals – baby’s breath and more mini carnations in one of my favorite colors, orange.

2017 BOUQUET COSTING TO DATE

One of the “stories” I tell myself is that flowers cost too much and not worth it. But given today’s prices of food, flowers are pretty comparable and may fill me up better than what food might have done.
