Picking Fresh Blooms



“No rain, no flowers.”

This is a quote that has always stuck with me. It kind of equates to “no bad, then no good,” or “no ugly, then no beautiful.” You can look at it as if I am romanticizing things, but I like to think I am just continually growing.

So, my Pinterest is an accumulation of all of my favorite blooms. I love flowers, and I never really did until I went to Europe and saw them along the market side and up at the castle. That was when I fell in love with the promise that florals in the spring, are in fact, groundbreaking. Sorry to burst your bubble Miranda Priestly.

That being said, I went and spent a good hour struggling between if I wanted sunflowers to honor the fact that it’s finally sun-shining out, if I wanted tulips (the answer will always be no), or if I wanted baby blooms/roses.

 I think you know that I picked the baby blooms. They were pale pink, reminded me of Pantone’s color of the year, and brought the best amount of brightness to my home. If there had been peonies, I am positive my decision would have been more complex, but the roses captured my romanticized heart and now I blush just looking at them from across the room.

My summer bucket list is checking off nicely, and with that, Claude Monet said it best…

“I must have flowers always and always.”

See ya Sunday babes.
