While I am not a big believer of the 'One-Day-a-Year' concept dedicated to all sorts of things -'Rose Day', 'White Day', 'Valentines Day', 'Take-your-dog-out-for-a-walk-day' and what-not, I do agree that every woman deserves to treat herself to something that makes her truly happy at least 'occasionally' if not more frequently than just 'occasionally' :-)! Now if you choose to do it today, then it would be your treat to yourself for what they refer to as 'Women's Day' ! Which is not a bad idea at all ! :-)
It could be as simple as a steaming cup of coffee in the sun, a couple of undisturbed hours when you can finally finish that book at one stretch, or finally getting that floral dress that you have been 'window-shopping' for the past whole month, a nice long walk by the river with your iPod playing your favourite playlist or maybe a few hours at the nursery eyeing your favourite plants !
Or it could be, as is in my case, a simple bunch of flowers that add colour to your living room. Mine is fragrant right now with the heady scent of these 'stalks'. Reminds me of my parents garden where they are planted every year for them to bloom around January and February. You get them in vibrant shades of purple and crimson, and of course the subtle lemon and white !
Aren't they beautiful? Totally in love with the sweet fragrance that is drifting in right now, gently asserting the presence of these gorgeous flowers in my home this weekend, lest I neglect them as I get busy with Saturday chores :-) Happy Women's Day, and if you do choose to treat yourself today, to celebrate the beautiful woman that is YOU, do tell me how you did it :-) Look forward to seeing your comments !
