I love having flowers in my home. I love treating myself with a bouquet when I go to the grocery store. Fresh flowers seem to warm up a home. I wish that the new Trader Joe's in town was closer to my house so that I could really indulge this love of fresh flowers with inexpensive bouquets every week.
There have been times when I have felt indulgent when buying myself flowers. We are taught that bouquets are delivered by suitors and sweethearts. Who buys them for herself? This girl does! I love how they brighten the place up. And I love splurging on myself to bring that brightness into my home.
Why do we think that way - that we aren't worthy of a $10 bouquet of flowers?Why do we feel like we can't spend that money on something we enjoy? I didn't think twice when I took a bouquet of Trader Joe's flowers to my mother but felt extravagant when I bought the same bouquet for myself.
I'm going to start doing this more, treating myself to flowers. I deserve a vase of blossoms to add color to my home. I am worth the drive to Trader Joe's to buy several bouquets, some to share and some to keep. Where did I get the crazy idea that a girl can't buy herself flowers? I am tossing that one out for good!
