There's something about winter, and flowers that just seem to not go together...but maybe that's because I live in the city, and hardly see flowers as it is...so once the winter months set in, I'm doomed to the harsh grays and browns of the city streets, and no color until spring...but I knew there had to be some flowers out there that survive in the winter....so I went on a search...and found a few beautiful examples on flickr! These bright, beautiful flowers stand up to the cold and in these cases...snow to liven up our cold winter days!!

I did a bunch of colors...but here are my two favorites...
and of course, had to have a Hokie one...VT love for my ACC championship bound team!!
oh, and I ordered them from Moo...just in case you were confused by the name of the blog post ;)
and they are still just as happy now as they were then...and of course I appreciate their finding each other for many reasons...I wouldn't be here if they didn't being the biggest reason...but of course the fact that seeing them together makes me truly believe that love really exists :)
okay, enough mushy stuff...I might cry ;) but here are some cute pics of them...December 2, 1978
my mom's dress is so beautiful...if I was only about 8 inches shorter...it's what I'd wear to my own wedding someday :)

What is your favorite tradition for the Thanksgiving holiday?
I absolutely love the holidays...pretty much once October hits until my birthday in January, I'm a happy girl :) Thanksgiving is always fun, because I usually haven't been home to see the family in a while, and all my friends who now live all over the country make it back to good old Hillsborough to celebrate. My dad and I get to watch football, and my mom and I do some baking, and pre-Christmas preparations...but the best part of Thanksgiving, is dinner at my Aunt & Uncle's house. The past few years have been extra special, because my Aunt battled and beat breast cancer, and is back in the swing of things cooking up a Thanksgiving feast...its not the food that's important, but the fact that she can, and does cook a fabulous meal, and we all have the best time together...
and now it's less than a week away!! I can not wait to see everyone at home on Wednesday!!!!!

4. my Christmas decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving and stay up until my birthday (01/11)
5. sometimes I talk to my cats, and think they'll actually answer me...
6. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be Pizza from Alfonsos, in Hillsborough, NJ
7. my #1 goal, is to learn to ski, #2...play the guitar :)
