I don't know about you.
But I LOVE flowers.
I love buying them for others and for myself — especially during the wintertime.
Some may consider it self-indulgent to buy themselves flowers; my 12 year-old son told me precisely that tonight. But (yep — I disagree with my 12 year-old) who is better qualified to pick out precisely the right flowers for you than you?
And while you're at it, buy some for someone else.
Maybe for a boyfriend or spouse for Valentine's Day, but why not also…
Send some to a friend that has a 3-month old baby, is sleep-deprived, and could use a pick-me-up?
Or a friend that has just moved to a new state and/or started a new job?
Or maybe, just maybe, you want one of your dearest friends to know how wonderful you think she is.
So you send her flowers.
