The Power of Flowers

Happy mid-week, lovelies! How is the week treating you? Mine has been a kind of hectic and bit stressful. Also we're hearing that a hurricane/tropical storm might put our vacation on hold for a few days so I'm slightly bummed about that too.

I've decided that the first stop on the way into the office today is the flower market. Nothing like a beautiful bunch of fresh blooms to turn this frown upside down :)

Hope you all have a wonderful day and if you're feeling a bit down, why don't you treat yourself to some beautiful blooms. They work wonders. Trust me :)

xoxo

Tamra {walkswithBella} said...

Agreed, I've been keeping fresh hydrangeas in the apt and they make a big difference and seem to last forever!

Mrs. C said...

Fresh flowers are my absolute FAVORITE! Love white too--roses, hydrangeas, etc. Hubster knows if I am ever in need of a "pick me up" to grab flowers, fro yo or a cupcake. ;) Feel the shaking on the East Coast?
