*I was sent a free bouquet of flowers from ProFlowers, but all opinions in this article are my own.
“You don’t like my birthday?”
Before I found the words to respond to my younger daughter’s statement, I felt a lump in my throat form.
See I never have minced words about my love of the summer season nor have I lied about my pure loathing and distain for colder weather that comes with late fall and winter here.
But now I had to admit, that as much as I am truly not a fan of the colder seasons and weather, my younger daughter’s feelings were so much more important than my own.
Quickly, I responded that while I do love summer, beach weather and more that comes with summer, that I do also have a special place in my heart for Fall, because my favorite holiday of Halloween, plus pumpkin and apple picking, as well as pumpkin spice are all tops in my book. But the biggest reason, I now love fall, at this point in my life, is that we celebrate her birthday right before Thanksgiving and can never quite forget the day she entered our lives – ever.
My youngest daughter was satisfied with my explanation and answer for now, but still summer, does hold a special place and yet all good things do have to come to an end.
And as much as I would love #SavingSummer for just a bit more, September 23rd marks the first day of fall, and before we know it the stores will be filled with holiday decorations, promotions and more.
So as we are indeed heading to Fall, ProFlowers, while excited for the holiday season to arrive, are also just not quite ready to say “goodbye” to summer, which is why they put together their own #SavingSummer campaign.
And as a part of this campaign, ProFlowers, offered to send me one of their summertime bouquets complete with a brand new vase to help inspire me to share something that I wished that I did this past summer, but for whatever reason just didn’t have time for.
I have to admit though that there really wasn’t much that we didn’t get to do. Plus this past summer was one of the best we have had in quite some time, because of the time we spent as a family, including beach trips, summer evening concerts, fireworks and of course our Disney World trip that our family took. Therefore I don’t have much in the way of regrets for this past summer, but I admit even over a month later after we returned from our magical family vacation, I am still Disney dreaming.
So much so that I have pretty much convinced my husband that we should return next year now to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary as a family for another go around.
Yup, you read that right, I am pretty sure we will be doing Disney again next summer and couldn’t be more excited to say this here. Which gives me even more to look forward to for the next summer now.
But until next summer, I am going to hold onto the last days of summer while I enjoy my most beautiful flower bouquet for the next few weeks, thanks to ProFlowers and then get ready to embrace Fall and all that it has to offer, including happily celebrate my younger daughter’s birthday.
See I chose the Premium StarGazer Lilies to not only remind me of summer, but of my younger daughter, who just happened to be named Lily after the famous flowers after our above conversation. The flowers are just as beautiful and spectacular as my daughter and can’t thank ProFlowers enough for sending me this premium bouquet of flowers.
