Call me old fashioned, but I just love roses. While this year's floral trends lean towards ferns and wildflowers (which I also adore), I have a hard time walking past a bouquet of roses on sale without bringing them home with me. When I was younger, the donuts in the grocery store used to call my name; now it's always, always the flowers. Rose blooms make me swoon with their timeless romance and if I choose to indulge myself on them, arranging fresh flowers in my room inspires me to clear cluttered surfaces and tidy up my living space. The soft petals poking from a glass jar give my mind permission to wander and quiet down amidst all the week's more hectic moments.
“Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
-Hans Christian Andersen
