I love Valentine's Day. Not only is it a very sweet day, but I'm lucky because I'm the one behind the scenes. I get to hear all the stories behind the flowers being ordered and arranged for people. I get to be creative and make things pretty for people to enjoy from their loved one. I love it! I'm a romantic, what can I say.
It was such a great day. The shop was bustling (with men of course) and we were selling flowers and making arrangements as fast as we could. It was just plain exciting. I have to say that the most adorable award goes to the guy who came in the shop looking for something for his grandmother. Yeah
he, I mean it, it was adorable.
We have been preparing for this day for a while now. Over the weekend we had spent Saturday and Sunday working and making all the orders that were to be delivered and picked up. It was fun, but unfortunately I was very sick so that was a bummer. But there is just something about working with flowers that makes everything better, I find it to be pretty therapeutic.
February 12th & 13th...
|So many roses.|
|Look who made an appearance :)|
|2 dozen red roses, featuring my favorite- the 'Black Magic' rose|
|I'm typically not a huge rose fan, but this 'Black Magic' is beautiful...|
and my bosses remembered how much I liked it :)
|I had a blast making this one.|
|Complete with a succulent, ranunculus, lavender,|
stock, lambs ear, dusty miller and wax flower.
|Some of the girl's arrangements out on display.|
|A couple more pre made arrangements.|
After a very successful and long day on campus I headed home. But my day wasn't quite over yet, it was about to get even better. I got to spend the rest of my evening with some of my girlfriends who had me over for an extremely delicious dinner. I was so blessed by them. And what would a girls night be without watching an episode of the Bachelor?! Yeah, it was a great night. Great friends, great food and great entertainment.
|I could feel the love.|
|Jodi and Jen|
|My roommate from the dorms, Sarah.|
|Susannah and Jodi (also roommates from the dorms).|
I hope your Valentine's Day was a wonderful one. And remember you can still tell people you love them every day, not just February 14th!
