I love gardenias.

I love the way they smell.

I love the way they look in a bowl.

But I really love them because they remind me of March 01 2009, the day Will proposed to me. (coincidentally we found out the following day that we were pregnant 😉 )

It’s gardenia season and lucky us, we have a small gardenia tree in the courtyard where we live.
