It's My Thing Tuesday: A "Just Because"


Today I was going to write something about one of my WIP's. There really isn't anything much to show though - all of my projects, both fiber & paper are in varying states of 'becoming'. It isn't my birthday, nor is it an anniversary, so imagine my delight yesterday when DH came home & presented me with this lovely bouquet. When I asked "why?", he said "just because". The colors are just so fresh & uplifting! Oddly enough he chose the colors associated with both of our birth months. White for may and purple for April. White can also be associated with air, light , simplicity and- marriage! Purple can denote sirrituality & creativity. Symbolically, he could not have chosen more perfect colors! As I was snipping the ends & carefully putting the flowers in water a pungent scent of summer wafted to my nostrils. I breathed in deeply and felt sun, happiness and love. Thank you my "just because"!

Don't you think he picked the colors on purpose because of the symbolism?
