The Best Valentine’s Day Gift

Several times over the last month, I’ve run across articles explaining the danger of losing your blog on BlogSpot. Apparently, sometimes an entire blog will just disappear…no reason…just log on one day and it’s gone. Since I’ve published over 400 posts now, I’m a bit worried. I’ve been fretting about it to my husband…so, look what he gave me for Valentine’s Day…

He actually looked at my stats and figured out my Top 100 viewed posts since I started the blog in 2009…then had them published in a hardback book. Now I can’t lose them!

And guess what? So many of you are forever documented in my book…your comments or your designs! I wish I could show you all of it, but its over 300 pages….so here’s a glimpse…

Thanks for the most thoughtful Valentine’s gift ever, Joel! And thank you, precious readers of the Brouhaha, for giving me so much joy this last year and half. And finally…a giant THANK YOU to all the floral designers and photographers who are a constant source of inspiration to me…without you all there would be no Botanical Brouhaha!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Oh that Joel. It is like he loves you or something. I think he knows the secret: YOU are the "best of" Botanical Brouhaha. Love you.

That may be the best Valentine's gift ever. Gonna last a lot longer than a flower arrangement.

OMG that is like the sweetest most romantic thing. How totally supportive and kind. I am in love with him also. There is nothing better than a husband that supports us flower ladies. Congrats to you and a big hug to your super smart and really clever hubby!!!

That's crazy sweet and amazing!!! Can I ask whether he uses an online printing service like Blurb and copy and paste the posts? It must have taken him ages to compile...
