I was reminded of this when I was out in my yard yard last night and noticed my roses were in bloom! On our 1st Valentine’s day together Chris got me a rose bush (so sweet) and every year I get so excited when the blooms open up. It’s so fun seeing the flowers and then remembering how we spent that day. My mom knew the story of that rose and so on our 1st wedding anniversary last September she happened to be in Bend where we were staying and beat us to our hotel and dropped off snacks and this rose bush. Totally brought tears to my eyes. Well surprise, surprise, the wedding rose was the 1st one that bloomed this year and my valentine’s bud is still all closed up. The new rose smells amazing! Can’t wait for more flowers to come.
Top and right roses were at our house when we moved in. Bottom bud is the Valentine’s day rose.
Have you stopped to smell the roses today?
