love on a saturday morning


i made the mistake when we first started dating, of telling Curtis that i didn't like flowers. at the time i think it was true. they seemed wasteful, generic, expensive. Now, with a home of my own, seeing fresh flowers on the counter or the table seems like a luxury, even if it's just a juice glass full of wild flowers.

Luckily, he's ignored my anti-flower comments from years past. It is not a gift i receive often, but because of it, i think i appreciate them more when they come.

i am also not much of a rose person. but when this tiny rosebush came in the mail for me as an early valentine's day gift i thought to myself, "he gets me. this is the way you give me roses. this man knows me very well."

when they came, the buds were tightly closed and shy. now, over a week later, they have opened and bend towards the sunny window in our kitchen, soaking in the little bit of sunshine we've had lately. new buds have formed and we watch as they too, grow and open.

fresh flowers have a way of making the kitchen feel alive, and fresh. they are the perfect way to welcome spring.
