Bouquets through the years...

Pin It Now!

My life lately seems to consist of working, working out, working at finding a good date and working at being a good friend and of course I try to be a good mom too!  That has left little time for this blog! I promise you I have not given up on this big part of my life! I love blogging but I think my life was feeling a little unbalanced and feel like I need to take a little break now and then. I will still be posting regularly but I may fill in here and there with some things you may have already seen here if you've been following my blog for awhile!  Today is one of those days...
Today I gathered a lot of photos of bouquets I've made for my home. Most of the flowers are from my garden but some were from the grocery store!
























As you can probably guess, I love fresh flowers in my home!

***********************************
Update on the my Internet dating:

I meeting another guy on Thursday evening for a glass of wine. I don't want to get my hopes up too much but I'm excited about this one!

Good luck with the dating scene. I can't imagine getting back into that mind set. ~ Sarah

Cindy,

Everyone deserves some time off, if nothing else than to re-charge the old batteries!

Enjoy your break, have fun and may your time away be filled with smiles and laughter.

We all need to take a break from things that are on our normal routine occasionally. What better way to fill our need to hear from you than with flowers. Spoken from a florist who never tires of seeing the beauty in flowers.

Sandy at Teacup Lane said...

All bloggers understand that breaks are needed -- it's important to keep a balance in life and not let one activity take over. As much as I enjoy blogging I like to do other things too. All your photos are just lovely today. i hope you find a nice guy who really appreciates what a gem you are!!!

Rhondi said...

Hi Cindy
I've been reading your blog for a long time, as long as I've been blogging. Whenever you feel an obligation to blog for the sake of your readers, it's time to take a break! Have fun dating! You are a very precious girl.
Hugs, Rhondi

Lori said...

lovely flowers, you do have an eye. Enjoy the wine and I hope the view is great.

I never mind seeing a repeat of your pictures.
Wish you were closer to Iowa, because I have a friend who you would be perfect for.

Elsie said...

Cindy I never tire of looking at your photos whether they be old
or new. You take such beautiful
pictures and you have the most
beautiful flowers.
Good luck Thursday and I don't
blame you for taking a break ever
once in a while. Everyone needs
a break.":O)

I'm sorry, but that "Date The Wealthy" ad on your page is on the verge of tacky. Your blog is too pretty for something like that in your face. Seriously.

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Anonymous: I agree with you! Those google ads I have on there pick up key words in each post so when I mentioned online dating it started running those ads. I wasn't too happy when I saw that!
