Early Valentines Surprise...

Tonight my sweet wonderful husband came home from work with this lovely potted orchid...

To say it was a surprise in an understatement...We have been married for 10yrs and have NEVER celebrated valentines day on the principle that hubby thinks it is a "commercialized BS holiday"...He also will NOT buy me flowers on a similar mannish principle...(I think he is just mean on this one and have even tried adding flowers to shopping lists and he still will not buy them lol)...So it really means the world to me that he not only listened to all my hinting about the orchids this yr, but he broke his firm manly beliefs to make me happy....

Feeling very blessed tonight...Kelsie

PS: He also got me my favorite chocolate, a big bag of peanut M&M's mmmmmmmm yummy

PPS: Since I practiced what I learned about Bokeh from Tracy to take this photo, I am add this post to her fun Linky Bokeh Party - http://tracys-trinkets-treasures.blogspot.com/2011/02/boekh-party-time-is-here.html

I just love orchids, my hubby gave me a purple one. Your white one is just gorgeous, enjoy :) I have not figured out Bokeh on my Nikon yet?
Happy Valentine's Day

Your husband might be related to my husband. They speak the same language "commercialized BS holiday". We just get cards for each other, but my husband did get me a little cake from a place we like that makes small pies and cakes. Thanks for linking up. I think you did a great job on your orchid shot. It is such a pretty flower he picked for you.
