Sometimes It’s The Simple Things

“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds around my neck.”
-Emma Goldman

Well said, Ms. Goldman. Don’t get me wrong. I have a great appreciation for quality gem stones, and The Complete Package has picked out some good ones. But I also would have fresh flowers in every room of my home every day of the year if I could. If I had to pick one – flowers every day or diamonds, I think I might be tempted to lean towards the flowers. I hope TCP doesn’t read this. Oh, well…he knows I have pretty simple taste. I’m not the flashy type. Something about the beauty and fragrance of flowers gets to me. Like our mountain laurels in bloom, or the plumeria we bought in Hawaii, or a grape hyacinth in the spring or honeysuckle in late summer. So tell me…are you a flowers person, or a diamonds person? PS – I’m not giving any diamonds back. Just so we’re clear.
