Floral Abundance

Once upon a time I was sent four dozen roses by my Sweetie.... Actually, it was for last Thanksgiving, an early Christmas gift. I took this photo of the roses, and it absolutely cheers my soul to look at it and to remember how beautiful they were. I finally make five little bouquets of them, rather than having them in one spot. This year for Valentine's Day we decided to do flowers again.... No picture yet, but hopefully soon. I read about women who buy themselves flowers often, keep them in their bedrooms, and pamper themselves. I always think that I should do that. I have decided to start composing a list of things I can do to take a little special-er care of myself. I don't hurt myself working, but I still beat myself up for all my mistakes and never give myself any slack. I'm the supreme slack giver when it comes to everyone else. I don't know how many times we read in books and magazines to pamper ourselves and do something nice for ourselves. Well, I'm going to start today to create a magical, nurturing, special world for my home. I hope it flows out to everyone who enters and to my son and his friend who live here, as well.... At this point, the house is a mixture of love and neglect.... and very little comfortable touches just for me.
I will try to post them and take pictures. If anyone has ideas that have worked for them, please let me know. Thanks so much!

Those roses are beautiful! You should pamper yourself. I just bought flowers for my home yesterday and I love how they bring my living room alive! Believe me, if it weren't for me pampering myself I wouldn't feel pampered at all!

Hello! When I think of pampering myself...I guess I think of a bath with something good smelling to dump in...some chocolate and then a magazine with beautiful rooms to stare at and some nice music and candles filling the room :)
