No Roses Here

Hello! How was everyone’s Valentines? We didn’t spend the night having a romantic dinner or anything of that sort. Just going out anywhere with Ms. Zoey is a challenge let alone having a nice quiet dinner at a fancy restaurant! Completely, out of the question.

Although we didn’t wine and dine, my husband did come home with the biggest bunch of flowers in hand. No roses here. I love that he thinks outside the box.

vday 2013aWhite Hydrangeas and a bunch of Pussy Willow.  He knows me too well!

vday 2013He always picks out the most appropriate cards and always write “- EM -” on the front, which is equivalent to hunnie/sweetie/babe in Vietnamese. 

We’ve been together for 13yrs and have kept every single card given to each other. It’s kinda corny to read some from the past…I cringe! 

vday 2013cI love that Pussy Willows look just as good dried as when they are fresh. 

vday 2013bI think these are the most adorable heart-shaped white chocolate truffles I’ve ever seen… 

vday 20133While Zoey took a nap, I jazzed up our bedside tables with my newly gifted blooms. 

vday 2013fOh I miss spring… when our bedside tables are always adorned with fresh florals.

And the night ended with my husband saying “I have some good news and good news.” I looked at him and screamed “You GOT it?!! Congrats hunnie!” He just landed THE position of a lifetime.  “And what’s the other good news?” I asked. He responded “You can get your HERMES bag…or diamond earrings.”

I think I’ll opt for a black cavier Chanel in gold-tone instead. Much cheaper than his two suggestions. 

I’m the luckiest and proudest wife on the planet…

  3. Hydrangeas. Such a beautiful and favored flower. I love the way you decorated it on your bed-side table. Especially love the white Hydrangeas and the Pussy Willow separated in the tall vases.
