Consider the Lilies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of iBulb for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of my favorite bible verses has always been Matthew 6:28-29 --

I am a huge fan of fresh flowers!  Nothing lifts my spirits quite like a bunch of beautiful blooms.  My husband is awesome.  I can always count on him to bring me flowers for special occasions like our anniversary or my birthday, but it has taken me years {seventeen, actually, this month} to expand his floral horizons beyond red roses.

Nothing against red roses, of course, but there are so many more interesting options in the world!  I happen to be a little bit partial to bulb-flowers like tulips, irises and lilies.  They're sturdier -- at least it seems like they are -- and they last longer without requiring a lot of attention.  Lilies especially blend well with all kinds of flowers and smell sooooo good.

I'll feel like  I've really "made it" in life when I can keep fresh flowers in my house all the time.  Have you ever walked into a house with fresh flowers in it and not felt instantly more cheerful?!  That's what I love about them the most.  I also love that lilies come in such a wide variety of colors from white to pastel to bright and vibrant.  There's a lily for any season and occasion. 

Potted bulbs can be purchased at grocery stores, garden centers, and flower shops and they're reasonably priced, making them a perfect "just because" gift to brighten a friend or co-worker's day. 

For more floral bouquet inspiration {or even just a little eye candy to brighten your day} check out this awesome Pinterest page. 

I hope you'll come back tomorrow for a fun, quick sewing tutorial I've been working on.  Have a great day, friends!!
