I Could Not Help Myself

I think that it is safe to say most gals enjoy fresh flowers. So it should be no surprise to you when I confess my love of flowers. All flowers! To me different flowers are unique memories. Blue hydrangeas remind me to fun filled summer days at my grandparents beach house. Irises remind me of the huge bunches of flowers that my father brought home to my mom for no reason at all.  Belles of Ireland were a sweet gift from BK, who was not known to be sweet. Mums remind me of the corsages my Pop had made every Thanksgiving for all his "best girls". 

One flower that never seems to be "in-style" is closest to my heart. The overlooked daffodil is very close to my heart. They were the very first flowers that Hubby ever bought for me when we first started dating. Over 16 years ago a bunch of daffodils were delivered to my dorm-room and I was over the moon!

I am sure that there is some sort of Southern rule about not buying yourself flowers, but I hope you will forgive me.  I simply could not help but buy some daffodils this week.  How can any gal walk past a sweet memory and not put it in her shopping cart!?!


  1. I LOVE daffodils! There is an entire weekend devoted to them on Nantucket and that is when hubby proposed :) I even have a daffodil charm on my charm bracelet. They are such a wonderful sign of spring and are so cheerful. Sigh. Now I want to go out and get some!!

  2. Those are beautiful and what a beautiful story! I think it's perfectly okay to buy some fresh flowers for yourself every now and then. It really does cheer up the house!

  3. I always buy myself flowers! i LOVE them!

  4. I love daffodils! They remind me of feb/spring and my favorite hill near my college in california. Ha ha! I wonder if there is a southern rule sbout buying yourself flowers.

    Now off to trader joes to buy some daffodils.
