I receive packages almost every day here, but a couple weeks ago I received something very unexpected. We were getting ready to go out of town when the small box was delivered, and at first I figured it was just another review item and decided to wait until we came back home to open it. When we got home I saw the box and started thinking about products I was expecting, and for the life of me, I could not figure out what it was.
I was very curious about what was in the box, so I grabbed some scissors and opened it up. When I removed all of the packaging, I saw a beautiful Blooming Expressions flower from Hallmark.
Along with the flower was a card that said "YOU HAVE A SECRET ADMIRER". Inside the card was a message that read "Someone thinks you're special..." and there was a code to go online to see who that someone is.
I took the flower out of the box and flipped the switch to the on position. The flower makes a great decoration in any room, but it is so much more than a decoration. When you push the button on the back, the flower "blooms" to reveal a message.
The message inside said "There's only one you!" How sweet!
I couldn't wait to see who it was from, so I went to the Secret Admirer website to find out. So who is my secret admirer? Well, if I tell you, then it won't be a secret anymore, will it?
OK, OK, I'll tell you...
The Blooming Expressions flower was from one of the wonderful PR reps that I work with. She left me a very sweet message, and it definitely brought a smile to my face. It is always great when a PR rep appreciates the work that bloggers do, and this was such a fun way to express that appreciation. Thank you so much Allie!
