Life in the Bathroom


What…are…you…dooooing? I posed this incredulous question to JD as he marched to our bathroom with a beautiful floral arrangement. He flashed me a look that that made me second-guess my own question. No, really, what are you doing?! JD spoke over his right shoulder as he told me he was placing the flowers in the bathroom.

Obviously. I mean, doesn’t EVERYONE place a floral arrangement where he brushes his teeth and shaves? Obviously.

I begged him to place the flowers in the living room, where they can be seen and lighten our environment. He wasn’t having it. No, no, flowers should be seen in random places to serve as a reminder of surprised spurts of happiness.

Okay. So who could argue with that?!

That’s where JD and I are so different. I want everything on the outside, and he…well…he prefers splendor of the inside kind. Beauty found in crevices and cracks. He lives life looking—and finding—the random bouquets in a person’s petite bathroom. I love him for that and need to try living my life outside the confines of my proverbial living room…and see life’s spurts of happiness.

Happy Tuesday!

    I love it. What a nice reminder to be beautiful on the inside and in small ways.

    And what a beautiful bouquet too!

    Wow, you have a nice bathroom, Jaz. Unconventional sink surface. Salt and Pepper in case the toothpaste is a little on the bland end of the spectrum. The book is a no-brainer, though.

    Eric…my metrosexual radar is going and you’re a perfect 10! 😉 The picture was actually taken at the event where we received the bouquet…thanks, Sherlock! 😉

    I think it’s kinda romantic though 🙂 I really like that idea of finding beauty in the most unusual places. I wish I could have flowers and plants etc around but knowing my kids, they will trash the place HAHA

    You may need to get some more camera bodies, cause it looks like that 50 1.2 has been surgically attached! 😛 =Matt=

    I wish AK cared more about where I put the flower rrangements… perhaps we are too different 🙂 It looks beautiful!

    Jasmine, I seriously think you missed your calling! You’re obviously a great photographer, but you can turn something simple (what would have been an argument in my house) into a poetic moment that inspires. That is certainly a gift! (I would have still been arguing to get the flowers placed where I wanted them… now that’s just plain stubborn!)

    I was a little nervous when I read the title of this post. Thankfully, it was about flowers. Pheeew!

    Oops, hit "save comment" prematurely, I was gonna add… how’s the 50 1.2 SOOC wide open? Is it sharper than the 50 1.4?

    AHHH, Flowers! I love putting them in the bathroom too – as long as I ALSO have some to put in the living room 😉
