A Valentine’s Day Surprise

A couple of years after I began teaching accounting at a university, I met my loving husband. Until this time, Valentine’s Day had never been a significant day on my calendar. For some unknown reason, I was always alone on this most romantic day of the year. Because of this sad fact, I will never forget my first Valentine’s Day with my husband. He showered me with gifts all day long. He first sent a beautiful flower arrangement to my workplace. Then, he took me to dinner at a nearby steak restaurant. After dinner, he presented me with a card, a box of chocolates, and a sweet book. When I arrived home that night, I found even more flowers. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of flowers to give a new love on Valentine’s Day.
