either you are or you aren't
I am a practicalist.
I am an advocate of tangible items when commemorating an occasion
as opposed to something that will be thrown in the trash in a week (or less).
Don't get me wrong, I love getting some flowers at the grocery story for a nominal sum, taking them home and photographing the daylights out of them.
Why, I will be first to admit that flowers add character and charm to a room and dare you walk past a bouquet of sunflowers and not feel a sense of cheer.
Clearly I am NOT the anti-florist,
I just have a more utilitarian approach to them.
But my other half is a romantic.
No matter how many times I have been (shamefully) less than appreciative of flowers delivered on special occasions, he continues to send me flowers.
Eternal hope that one day it might spark even an ember of romantic in me.
Bless his heart.
His hopelessly romantic heart.
