"Live Everyday like A Holiday!"
Is there anyone out there that doesn't like flowers? I know I sure love them and if I could, I would have a new pot of flowers on my table every single day of the year! Getting flowers is such a special treat and I sure hope my hubby celebrates this holiday by bringing a basket of flowers home. "Live ones please!" Not a basket of cut flowers but a basket of living and breathing flowers in moist dirt, that's the kind that I like. "Live Everyday like A Holiday!" pam svoboda, webmaster
