A Valentine Reminder
The sun is up, the skies are blue, the heat is on, and everyone is sleeping quietly but me.
I'm sipping my constant iced skim latte and reading blogs. With Valentine's Day just a week away the theme is romance. Apparently Valentine's Day is everyone's favorite holiday. They are not florists. We are so busy working so many hours, doing so many arrangements to express your love, the most we can hope for at the end is a hot bath and a good night's sleep.
But then I thought of the love and care we designers show one another. We share our food, bringing extra snacks to get through the tired moments, fruit, cheese, nuts and a bite of dark chocolate. We carry each other's arrangements up or down the stairs when the other is tired. One of my coworkers always asks " May I do that for you?" We make each other laugh till we cry. We compliment one another's work and offer up flowers that might make that arrangement just that little bit better.
Love comes in all shapes, sizes and guises. Apparently my world is full of it, even in the most unlikely places.
