Simple and Elegant


Every year my sweet hubby presents me with the first rose off of our only rosebush.


Just one rose.

 
But it's such a work of art in itself.


It adds such a glorious pop of color to my mostly neutral palette!


Simple and elegant.


Sometimes simple really can make a statement.


 Thanks so much for stopping by-enjoy your day! :)
