Roses are red…

Love is in the air this weekend, whether its with a significant other or one spoiling themselves, and I thought it was only fitting to go out and spend a morning picking some fresh roses for the occasion. I love fresh flowers and I heard about this place from Tegan (the beauty behind the camera – read about her HERE), and I don’t think I was ready, cause I was pleasantly surprised to find it was even more beautiful than I imagined.


Lilies are my first love, but I must admit to being like a kid in a candy store, with so many different types of roses, in a variety of shades blossoming all around me; I was excited to be able to pick some, to take home with me, even though I got pricked by giant thorns a couple of times.



I know flowers aren’t a thing for every girl …I don’t understand how anyone could not fall in love with such beauty, that smells so sweet, but hey, each to their own I guess. For me, these delicate beauties of nature are just so perfect, each in their own way and though I hate the thorns they have, it’s their way of protecting themselves.

Kind of how we are as people, each beautiful & special in our own way, with our own ways of protecting ourselves in this harsh world.


I hope each and every one of you reading this post start by showing some love and appreciation to yourself this Valentine’s Day, and should you be blessed enough to have a significant other, I hope the two of you celebrate your love in your own special way.
