As most of you know, there's been a bit of a mix-up with my birthday. Random Chick went wacky one day and before we knew it my life was forever changed (THANK GOD!!!). My birthday is August 8th (yup, of course I'm a Leo (that hair thing probably gave it away!)) and I wasn't going to celebrate, but Random Chick and all you dear friends made me realize the day is amazing and worthy of attention, so we all started celebrating early. I'm about to turn 49 and although I don't want to, I have to (that's the law apparently). Unfortunately, Robyn didn't get the memo. She logged on to the Wild Onion, read the post and thought it was my birthday...again! And immediately ordered this! I love that woman with all my heart. Even when she realized she'd made a bit of a boo-boo, she didn't relent. The florist still delivered this beautiful bouquet (Robyn...just so you know the upgrade, 24 roses!). And not just from her, but all of you too! That's a dear friend. It was supposed to arrive last Friday, but didn't and she was very upset, but it arrived Monday to welcoming arms and Ohno!
Today (Saturday), I realized the blooms were fading and weren't going to open, so I took matters into my own hands and created these! I love um!!! They're so precious and I think the blooms will open with short stems. I also saved the baby's breath and have it hanging in the garage to dry to use on the Christmas tree.
