My mom's Valentine's day had to be celebrated sans my dad, who was in Cambodia (and is now in Lao). So I happily stepped in. I love my mom. She's one of my best friends, and I love making her happy.
flowers for mom:
my mom especially loved the yellow roses:
I especially loved the star-gazer lilies:
valentine's candles for mom (she now has them on her desk in her bedroom):
Some people think Valentine's day is overrated. I don't. Around that time of year, there are always so many pretty sights around me: (the more-than-usual number of) pretty flowers being sold around me, pretty valentine's day presents, pretty girls happily holding presents from their loved ones, so many happy, expectant and in-love people...
My mom loved the flowers and candles. She texted my dad about them, and he said he was also "touched" by what I did. :-)
