A 20th Anniversary Celebration!

I can’t believe it has been 20 years that my husband and I have been married! He surprised me with a gorgeous bouquet of 20 roses in different colors! I was delighted!

Here are a couple of photos of the bouquet that I had to share. It blew me away!

I cried tears of joy when I saw so many different colors! I feel blessed to have such a thoughtful husband! I wrote him a poem which I do yearly for our anniversary to thank him for being such a wonderful husband.

If you ever wondered what the color of the rose means here is a quick explanation.







Now all you men out there know which roses to buy your loved ones. Happy shopping. Whichever colors you choose your loved ones will be thrilled to have a rose of any color. Flowers are a sign of affection no matter which ones you buy.

Thank you for letting me share these with you. They are too gorgeous not to share.

Blessings & Hugs!
