eleanor and i had so much fun last week delivering some beautiful flower bouquets to a couple of her little girlfriends in our bucket bike! the bouqs company had reached out and asked if we’d like to receive some of their pretty bouquets as they prepare for mother’s day, and since we have loved using their service in the past (see here) and i’m also the biggest fresh flowers lover out there, i was excited! when we opened up the flowers and saw so many beautiful stems, we knew we needed to share the love! i asked eleanor who we should give some to, and she started listing off so many little friends, it melted my heart! we tied some small ribbon around each bouquet and were on our way! she has still been talking about how much fun she had playing “deliverer” and giving something special to her little girlfriends!
if you’re unfamiliar with the bouqs company, their flowers are cut the day you order and shipped next day directly to your door from their farms! there are no upsells or hidden costs, plus free delivery! and what you see is what you get, beautiful flowers that smell so fresh. a few of their current bouquets have succulents mixed in (like this one and this one), which i feel like makes the bouquet all the more unique and special.
ps — there’s a code at the bottom of this post for 20% off your next order! perfect timing for mother’s day!
opening up some of the flowers!
eleanor cut and wrapped the ribbon around most of the bouquets all by herself!
so, funny side note: samson has been working diligently for about the last month on tie-ing his shoes all by himself. for a while, no one was more frustrated than me with his determination and independence (he requested to learn all on his own too!), because it usually meant a solid ten minutes of trying and trying some more every time we were putting shoes on. BUT, he’s got it now! and can even double knot them pretty well! so, eleanor has shown interest in learning as well now that her little brother figured it out, and he’s been teaching her!!!! so eleanor practiced with our ribbon and i’m so proud of her! she’s almost got it down like samson! i just love how determined they are to do things on their own. i wish i was more patient and encouraging when they sit down to solve a task like this, but sometimes it’s so hard to not intervene for times sake! i’m working on it. i know how important it is so i’m trying hard to step back and let them take the time to figure it out (and jump in to help where needed.) ;)
do you see what i’m talking about with those succulents in the bouquets?! can you even?! so beautiful. this one is the wild about you flower bouquet.
off to go deliver some flowers!!!
papa snapped this before we were on our way!
