International Women’s Day and Giveaway

by Nicole on March 8, 2013

Did you know that International Women’s Day is today? I can’t think of anything better to celebrate than women and their amazing achievements!

International Women’s Day is Friday, March 8th, but we’re celebrating the women of the world for an entire week! From Monday, March 4 to Sunday, March 10, honor your mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues and all the women in your life with truly original flowers and gifts. Observed since the early 1900s, this important holiday champions equality and emancipation for women across the globe, and marks their economic, political and social achievements.

There are a lot of women I admire but right now my thoughts are with my aunt. My aunt is my father’s only sibling and so my brother and I have always been close with her. For her whole life she has lived in Boston but she retired in October and made plans to move to Florida to be closer to us since we don’t have any family in Boston anymore. She arrived last Friday and I am so proud of her! It must be so hard to move after living in the same area your whole life.

I am happy she is closer to us now and we will be able to see her more often and help her as she needs help. Unfortunately she hadn’t even been in Florida for a week when she got sick and is now in the hospital with pneumonia! I know these flowers will brighten her day. I admire her ability to make a big change at a not so young age!

The bouquet I picked out above is gorgeous! I love orchids since they don’t have a strong scent they are perfect for the hospital or for the home if someone is flower sensitive. The color is so vibrant and I think orchids give off a great tropical vibe since she’s living here in Florida now!
