Now although anyone looking at this flower arrangement may say,"oh that is pretty." It would end there. Flowers are always a nice treat, but they usually don't invoke tears. But this flower arrangement put tears in my eyes. As I was starring at it speechless, my husband asked, "do you recognize this arrangement?"
"Of course," I say, "it is my wedding bouquet." And I continue to stare at the flowers as my heart is rushed filled with memories of that sacred day. My wedding bouquet was a tight ball of red roses with highlights of white stephanotis flowers. It was beautiful. Here is my bouquet.
The florist told my husband that the stephanotis flowers are used for weddings, but they really don't last for more than one day. So she used some filler flowers in the flower arrangement she made so there would be flowers present when the stephanotis withered.
I am very Blessed to have such a wonderful thoughtful husband.
I live "La bella vita" -- the beautiful life
