16 Years Ago Today...


Todd and I started dating. I was quite shocked when he sent me this gorgeous bouquet of stargazer lilies. I was overwhelmed and so happy! This is the first time he's ever done something like this!

As usual in life there are people who have to rain on your parade and ruin what is a happy event. I won't go into it, but needless to say someone shit in my corn flakes after I got my flowers.

I've now got them at home where they can truly be enjoyed.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to photograph them better in daylight.

From your recent posts it sounds like you've been a busy girl with all that framing. Wow!
I like your start on the RR too.

The flowers are beautiful! I love stargazers! Sorry to hear that someone just couldn't keep their nose out of things and put a bit of a damper on things. Hope you had a great day anyway!

And yes, to those that don't believe Todd is real, he does exist, I've met him in person!

And great choice on flower I might add - my favourites.

Congratulations on your 16 year together. So you met when you were very young. You were about the same age as my DH and I started dating. Everyone always said it can last as we were that young and we have been together now for almost 28 years! OMG that sounds like I am very old but I am not LOL

Enjoy the beautiful flowers!

Congrats - sounds like you have a very special someone who loves you quite a bit.

Others with negatives - consider them jealous that they don't have someone caring in their lives -

Sharon said...

Erica said...

Congrats Dani! The flowers are beautiful.

Don't let anyone rain on your parade. They're probably jealous!

Beautiful flowers and very thoughtful of Todd to send them.

To heck with the rudeness of others. Why bother being rude and potentially hurtful? Some people!
