With Love

I'm a talker.... therefore I SUCK at Wordless Wednesday posts!!

I always want to add text.

So if you haven't seen it yet check out my Wordless Wednesday post for today ~ With Love From Afghanistan

Yesterday I was sitting at work when in walks the UPS guy. He says he has a package for me.

'I haven't ordered anything....' I think to myself wondering what it could be.

Then he hands me a rather large box that reads I start smiling before I have even cut the tape on the box. I open the box and inside is the largest bouquet of flowers I have ever received.

And not just any flowers... my FAVORITE flowers. They have many names: star-gazer lily's, tiger-lily's, etc -- no matter what the name or color they are by far my favorite flower.

There are two wrapped sets of the flowers in the box (two bouquets). I am near speechless, which if you ever met me you would know is near impossible - I always have something to say.

Before I even look at the enclosed card I know that they are from Marine.

How thoughtful. And how sneaky on his part. He must have ordered them last week when the mobile unit was there and he was able to get online for the first time.

There were so many of them I decided to leave half in a vase on my desk at work and to take the other half home where they are now in the smack dab middle of my dresser.

They are so much more beautiful than the picture portrays.

He is just always full of such nice surprises. He definitely scored some brownie points here.
