La Vie en Rose

[Image via the kissssing blog]
One year in college -- Chris and I were in different states -- I didn't hear from Chris at all on Valentine's Day. I downheartedly arrived at my babysitting job that evening, admittedly a little jealous that I wasn't the one going out on the town . As I was welcomed through the door I saw an enormous bouquet of red roses on the mantel and the mom gave me a 'gotcha' smile. Chris had arranged for the flowers to be delivered at their house, knowing that I'd be there on Valentine's night. Those flowers stayed on my desk for as long as they lived, and it was the happiest Valentine's surprise I'd ever had.

(Also, you can listen to the song "La Vie en Rose" here. I'm a little obsessed with Edith Piaf music after watching the movie on Netflix last month. Happy Valentine's Day!)


  1. I never knew this. What a great little love story :)

  2. I remember that LOVE story! So sweet to hear about it again. You have a wonderful husband!
