Happy "Love Sucks" day!

Ok, not really, but I saw that comment and got a kick out of it. I don't have a problem with V-day, but I remember what a HUGE deal it was in high school. Right before each period ended, they would announce everyone's name to come to the office to pick up deliveries. And, each period, you would see girls lugging around HUGE vases of flowers. Those of us not so fortunate, it was this huge flag waving "SINGLE". Now, a couple of years, I did get flowers, and it was awesome. One friend sent the most beautiful boxed set (you know, long stemmed in that white box), and NO other girl got anything like it. Very classy and tasteful, and I loved it!!! The thing is, though, that I love getting flowers for NO reason, not just birthday and V-day. It just says, even more, "Hey, I was just thinking about you, and thought this might cheer you up". The last flowers I got were this past summer and they were gorgeous, lasted forever. That saying, it's the thought that counts, and flowers popping up meant he was thinking about you. Drew sent a beautiful arrangement once, full of spring flowers, my favorite! I love daffodils/tulips/iris, things like that, and they don't do well in arrangements, but that one was spectacular.
