So I thought I’d share my simple tip which gets them back on track…

    Those roses are beautiful! Good thing you saved them… I hate it when new flowers wilt within the first few hours. So I’ll have to remember this tip!

    By the way, your fireplace is adorable (I want it). And I love that set of pitchers on your mantel. They look like Anthropologie!

    Thanks for the read!
