Raindrops on Roses (and Whiskers on Kittens)

Monday, December 16, 2013

Thanks to The Bouqs for sponsoring today's post.

I want to thank you so much for all the love and kind words about my sweet dog's passing. Rocky was wonderful and he's already missed so much. I've spent the past four days in bed a lot, but also trying to smile and indulge in a lot of my favorite things, like breakfast and whole milk lattes at my favorite place, followed by season one (okay, and most of season two) of Girls on HBO GO.

I am doing my best to keep myself distracted and feeling happy. I've felt at moments that I'd like to take some time away from this blog, but I also think life needs to go on as regularly as possible (spending an entire day in bed watching shows and eating gluten-free pizza is not something I do regularly, so I think I will attempt to blog instead).

So let's move on a bit. I've been really excited to share this new-to-me company with you. Whether you are sad or happy or confused or angry, flowers are always nice, right? I received a gorgeous bouquet of roses from The Bouqs earlier this week and I must say, it was nice to have it on my dinner table these past few days.

Their website is beautiful and easy to use and you know exactly what you're getting. These are Diamonds, from the Volcano collection. I've always loved roses, but I thought the little pop of white was really nice.

Thank you again for all the love I've received, and for your patience as I get back on my feet. And as always, thank you so much for your support as I continue to work with sponsors, especially this holiday season. It is such a blessing to have this built-in support system of friends I haven't met before, and I'm so thankful for each and every one of you.


PS The Bouqs is actually hosting a contest this week--one person will win twelve months of Bouqs! This contest runs until Monday, December 23rd at 10AM PST. Here's how to enter:

1. Register at The Bouqs (you'll receive a 20% discount code) and browse the site.
2. Leave a comment on this post telling us who you would send a Bouq to and which one you'd choose. (Tell us who would receive a Bouq, which Bouq you'd send, and why that person is special to you or why that Bouq is perfect for them.)

One winner will be chosen from all participating blogs. Good luck!


  1. So I never comment on blogs anymore, but duh I'd love to win pretty flowers.

    I registered and I'd send "The Fix" bouquet to my momma, because getting flowers is always nice, especially as a single mom with all of her kids out of the house. They'd brighten up the place!

  2. oh they're gorgeous! I'd send my grandparents a bouquet - it's their 60th wedding anniversary on the 24th and they're taking the whole family to the Bahamas to celebrate, so I'd order the Above & Beyond to arrive at their apartment in New York the day they get back from the holiday :)

  3. Been thinking about you all week, girl! Hope everything is going well and that you travelled safely!

  4. So pretty! I would send them to my sister. She has an exciting life event coming up (telling everyone else at Christmas so I can't say what), and I'd like to celebrate with her. We live in different states 13 hours apart so the flowers would be perfect! I would send the frosty bouquet full of white ranunculus. We both love ranunculus and wanted them for our weddings (the same summer) but couldn't get them. She would love it!

  5. Oh my word, I would love this. I would send them to my Aunt Beth. We lost my Uncle Ray last week, (just two days before her birthday) and I think a beautiful bouquet of flowers arriving at her door step would help to left her spirits. I think I would choose the Santa Suit Reds for her.

  6. I loved a snowy night and I would send it to my sister in Montana. Then I would buy another one for me.

  7. I'm so excited about this giveaway! Flowers are my favorite "just because" gift. I would send a bouquet to my husband at work because boys never get flowers even though they love them just as much as we do :) I'd choose the Monterey bouquet! xoxo

  8. Whoops. I think my comment got deleted my mistake. My bad!

    I would send Thomas a bouquet at work because boys never get flowers, even though they deserve them so much. I'd send the Monterey because it's STUNNING. Thanks for hosting this giveaway, girly! xoxo
