We had a great Valentine's Day yesterday. Gaupo and I had gone out to eat last Friday night-have I mentioned that my mom takes the kids for a sleepover almost every Friday night? How completely awesome is that? (please don't stop, please don't stop, please don't stop)
So, we took the kiddos out for burgers and shakes and had a grand old time.
In addition to a dozen roses, which would have been quite sufficient, Guapo got me some orchids:
I saw them and immediately tensed up.
How many times in Brazil did I attempt to keep an orchid alive? And, how many times did I succeed? That's right. NONE.
After he gives them to me he adds, "They weren't cheap, so don't kill them." Great. No pressure. (and super romantic)
He got them from our bishop's orchid shop (nursery? greenhouse?). I have orders to go into the store and buy special "orchid food" and try to keep the very much in bloom, very healthy orchids alive for an acceptable amount of time (is a week enough?). Help!!!
I had originally posted what she wrote but then I felt funny about it-I don't want her to feel like things she tells or writes to me will end up on my blog. But, take my word for it, my eyes were not dry by the end of it. She is such a sweet girl and I am so lucky that she is my daughter. :)
It made my day.
Hope your day was wonderful.
