Not the plant but the color; that being a pale tint of violet. When we were dating he would often meet me at the airport with a bouquet of roses (at the time we had a midwest/east coast romance going on and were racking up miles) and I felt on top of the world every time. One day he brought me lavender and white roses and I was amazed as I had never ever seen lavender roses before. One of us, I don’t recall who, dropped a subtle as a ton of bricks hint about them making a great wedding bouquet.
At the time he was in favor of getting hitched and I was all for running away from it. Needless to say he wore me down…and while planning the wedding guess what the colors were? You got it! My shoes were purple, the bouquet was lavender roses, his shirt, the invitations, etc. were all in the lavender and white color scheme. I didn’t go Bridezilla but some might have a slightly different opinion about that. Don’t listen to them.
All of this is to say that this week is our wedding anniversary and I am unplugging from social media for awhile so that we can run away with each other to celebrate. The doctor has said the bone is laying down it’s calcium and I should have another 3 weeks before it’s mended but the soft tissue injury is still a big wonky. Alas no high heels for this anniversary but I will carry on just as well in flat sandals.
Then again, I do have a pair of lavender Nikes. See you next week 🙂
(Not roses but they are the right color; bless his heart)
