Love Is In The Air

A couple inches of snow fell over night here in NW Ohio but no blowing or severe conditions. Just a beautiful snow covered winter day. As I sit here quietly, still trying to shake this cold ... thoughts of years past and Valentines Day enter my mind... Remembering all the difficult days and the day itself in the floral industry is quite a challenge... how worn out I was for a week after.... All the Teddies and Teddy Bears, jewelry, and risky objects that would be asked to be tucked into flowers or delivered with candy... Thousands of roses would have to be cleaned and prepped for arranging or boxing... I have to share one of my memories that always is at the top of my list.....I have to smile but in no way was it funny... but the moral of the story is.... if you are going to order roses for your boyfriend.... DO NOT DO IT WITH YOUR HUSBANDS CREDIT CARD.... Yes my friends ... she was blonde.... and divorced with a couple months after that ... And of course the husband came in and wanted to know whom he had sent flowers to.... BINGO...
I have many stories but this one sits right at the top when I think back at the past Valentines Day...
Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day and hoping you can spend time with loved ones.....
