these lovelies were on my kitchen table last night.
after almost 31 years of marriage (22nd of this month is our anniversary)

moments like this:
Really, really do bring me joy!

they smell divine, and everytime I walk through the kitchen I see them and a little smile comes across my face. Oh the Joy!

now I know that roses are expensive and frivolous and...yada, yada, yada... but, when a girl gets beauties like these...all of the caution does fly out the window...

yes, my heart is full of joy this friday...

may you enjoy this is Valentines weekend so enjoy it with the ones you love...
go. be. JOYFUL. :)
