Fresh Flowers

I love fresh flowers! When I was young, I thought girls only got flowers from boys! 
Then, as I got older, flowers were something you received on special occasions. ( birthdays, anniversaries, Valentines Day, childbirth, etc)

One day, I just decided that I am not going to wait to receive flowers! I am going to buy my own! It was very liberating for some reason! 

Back in the late 90's, I started buying gladiolas for my breakfast room table. They were so tall and dramatic. 

 Now, I just buy these sweet simple flowers. I got these at Whole Foods. I usually just pick up whatever catches my eye, is seasonal, and fits my budget at the time. Sometimes just some simple white roses or hydrangeas.  I picked these as they remind me of the last days of summer!

I just place them in little nooks around the house!
They make me smile ! 

Do you have fresh flowers in your home?
