let’s talk flowers.
a couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend surprised me with petite yellow flowers. I know he is a winner, because: a) he got me flowers and b) they were YELLOW.
little irks me more than cheesy red flowers…red roses? gag.
but alas, as flowers do, they died a few days ago. I actually kept their sad, dead buds in my vase just because I enjoyed the memory. but my knowledge of feng shui vis a vis my earthy mother reminded me that dead things in a room do not send good vibes your way.
so! last night I picked up these pink carnations. I can’t think of anything else that brings me this much joy for just seven bucks. (although I suppose kraft mac and cheese is only around three dollars…)
i’m newly motivated to have an active tumblr.
i even made lists of things to talk about!
these posts will jump around a lot, but I can’t help it, i’m a complex lady.
let’s get inspired by the small things.
