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 who's better qualified to pick out precisely the right flowers for you than you?

When a Dream Dies

My first pregnancy had been SO easy. First try. Pregnant. Not a day of morning sickness. And notwithstanding the fact that I'd had my son the old-fashioned way because no anesthesiologists were on hand when I arrived at the hospital, his birth was also easy. Two years later, I was ready to have another baby. I'd get pregnant in late August; an early summer baby wouldn't interfere with my busy time at work, and allow me to enjoy a summer off. Baby number two -- coming right up.
