Valentines Day. It's my ultimate favorite. As a general rule of thumb I love to wear pink - except today I am allowed to get totally decked out - no apologies necessary. There are hearts everywhere - I love this because a heart is just about the only thing I know how to draw. It's my Bestie's Birthday - which means that it is always a celebration. Not that those three things alone aren't enough but, everyone is lovey-dovey and thoughtful...and I LOVE that! When I was in Intermediate School Valentines was a girls big day. When I was in 7th grade (I think this is when I became my most neurotic) I made my Mom go to the grocery store on the way to school. I made her buy me a cellophane wrapped rose and a balloon and, I made her deliver it to me at school on her lunch break (spoiled I know). I went to the office to pick it up at recess and then told all my friends that I didn't know who it was from.
Segway to 27 year old Megan....Today I get a call that I'd received flowers. NO WAY! Of course I rush up on my next break - the secretaries (who I love) have a black box on their desk. They're oohing and aahing and make me open it up then and there - I get it open and they are saying 'who's it from?! who's it from?!' - and I honestly didn't know! Of course they loved that even more. In the box was a single red rose. It was packaged beautifully with sheer gold and black fabric. It had it's own vase in a sheer black gift bag. It was just so beautiful!!!!
Seriously - this was so much better than 7th grade (besides the obvious fact that I didn't send them to myself)!!! It made my day. The rose is absolutely lovely. I cleaned off my desk and put it next to my blogging station - because that is where I spend the most time. So..Thank You...and, Happy Valentines to you too :)
