“The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.”

Today marks HandsomeHusband’s and my 15th wedding anniversary. (See here and here for wedding photos of us) We will not be going out to celebrate until either tomorrow or Saturday night. MonkeyBoy had baseball practice otherwise we would have gone out this evening. That’s the way things go when you have kids. Oh well. HH brought me a bouquet of three beautiful long stem roses, one yellow, one pink and one red. I wasn’t expecting flowers so it was so very nice to receive them.
