Here it is â€“ a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.
Day 18: Buy yourself some flowers.
I once had a boyfriend who brought me a beautiful bunch of flowers every week from the farmers’ market near his work. I know that may seem excessive and one might think the flowers wouldn’t be as special if you got them so often. Nope. They are. I never tired of having a vase full of beautiful blooms on my table. Of course now, there are usually only bouquets around when they are coming from my garden, but there’s something to be said about splurging on a bouquet from the market. And honestly, I don’t know why I don’t buy them for myself more often. We could all use some pretty every once in a while, especially during the dark days of winter.
