happy mother's day

I hope you were all pampered and appreciated today.  I felt very loved - handmade cards, flowers and lots of yummy food!  Seeing as we were out of town, all three meals were eaten out today.  Um, yes, I loved not having to wash any dishes, but now I will be wearing elastic pants all week!

My husbands birthday happened to fall on Mother's Day this year so we celebrated together by taking the family for a fun little get-away to Beantown.  While there, I also attended Bloggy Boot Camp.  It was a lot of fun and I met several new "blogging buds".  (My head is full of fantastic new tips/info - great conference!)

On Friday night we stayed at the hotel where the conference was taking place, but Saturday night we had to switch hotels because the first one was already booked.  No problem - besides, I kind of like seeing different hotels.  So, we checked in to the new one, made our way to our room and had just started enjoying the view when there was a knock at the door.  It was flowers!!!  My sweet hubby called the hotel to get a florist recommendation while I was at the conference.  Aren't they pretty!?  I've never gotten flowers delivered to me at a hotel.  I felt so special.  I felt so loved.

The florist was Winston Flowers.  They are amazing!  My photo does not do this arrangement justice.  If you have any floral needs in the Boston area, I would highly recommend you call them.  Jeromy said they were very helpful and really listened to what he told them I liked. Case in point, he mentioned one of my favorite flowers are calla lilies, but due to us traveling he just wanted a little arrangement.  So, they fixed him up with a mini calla lily arrangement. Another detail I loved was they use beautiful, classic and very unique containers.  I've never seen one like I received before.  Even the message card sticks were cool!  I'm weird, I know, but the little details get me all aflutter.

Also, while strolling down Newbury Street on our way to play in Boston Commons today, we just happened to walk by a Winston Flowers shop.  I was even more impressed!!!  More unique containers and more beautiful arrangements.  Anyway, this is a wordy post (sorry!) to tell you about a wonderful floral resource in the Boston area.  I will definitely be using them again. Matter of fact, I'm going to write them a little note telling them how happy we were with their service.  I know I loving hearing from my customers.  Great job, Winston Flowers!

And one final note...
Happy Mother's Day!!!

Winston Flowers are my very, very favorite! When I was living in Boston, my hubby and I dated long distance and he would send me Winston Flowers. I think that might be why I married him : )
