My bouquet of life

A few months ago I received a letter from one of my best friends. She said that if friends were flowers, I’d be one of the most rare and beautiful flowers in her bouquet of life. I thought this analogy was quite beautiful, and I appreciated it more when I read it for the second time the other day. Then a third time. Then a fourth time. I’ve thought about all of the flowers I have in my own bouquet, so I’ve developed a beautiful collage game. I’ve chosen 16 flowers to represent the 16 people (ok, 15 people and a dog) in my life to whom I’m closest. This is a game of guessing. Try to figure out which flowers represent which people. I had fun creating this. (Oh, and the size doesn’t matter. I was just trying to make it pretty. Don’t kill me, Aimee. I know you sometimes lose control because of your design disease!)

This entry is in honor of you, friends. Find yourself in my bouquet of life and post your comments below. I will post the answers on Friday.Bouquet of life

    I love you just for putting me in your bouquet, but holy shit this is hard! I am either the pink and whitish curly cue (left) or the blue fuzzy one at the top right, but I kinda hope I am the cool moonstar thing at the bottom right. I am probably completely wrong altogether!!! I love you no matter which flower I am, I am just glad I am one of YOUR flowers!!! MISS YOU!!!

    Whitney! I love this. I wouldn’t “kill” you over this photo collage. I absolutely love it! It’s perfect — from concept to execution!

    All right, I usually only love games I can win at. I will definitely not win this game. But here are my picks (I could only figure out 14 of the 16, so two flowers don’t have a person.):

    Top row:
    Pink one: Kya
    Daisy: Kelsey
    Sunflower: Ashley
    Fuzzy blue one: Your dad

    Second row:
    White squiggly one: Danny French
    Orange bush one: Msomer13

    Third row:
    Yellow bunch one: Matt
    Maroon one: Your mom
    Yellow triad one:
    Puffy orange one: Sam

    Fourth row:
    Blue with orange accent: Me
    White cluster one: Christine
    Blue facing down: Krystle

    Fifth row:
    Banana-like one: Will O
    Rose:
    Blue star: Patrick

    A few hints…
    I chose the flowers for each of you based on the color, shape, overall look and the meaning behind them. Maybe that will help.

    Ashley — Duh.

    Somer — The whitish curly cue one is called a Spiderflower. :) Can you tell why I picked it for you?

    Aimee — I thought you would get your flower right away, sadly your guess is incorrect. You did get two right, though!

    Haha. Damn. OK, I picked the flower I liked the most for me. But, with the hints… I am going to go with the puffy orange one on the right. I really want to be the pink one, but I am almost positive that’s Kya. Are the answers you post Friday going to be detailed? They better be…I am so sucked into this game. Love you!

    The pink one’s NOT Kya ;)

    I’m glad you’re sucked into this game. I would have been. You’re the only one who’s playing. And me, I’m totally playing.

    I feel very honored to be in your bouquet! Although I’ve had some song I think I learned in kindergarten and have never given any thought to until today, running on endless loop in my head. “Friends are like flowers in the garden of life…” Thanks.

    I’m the worst at guessing and have to admit that I took your clues and googled…am I the cowslip, third down on the left hand side??

    HAHAHA Valerie! You took the clue I gave you and Googled it, didn’t you? Yes, that’s you — so cute and little and bright. :)
    Thanks for playing.

    Just so you know… I woke up today like I wake up on Sundays — except today I thought it’s Bouquet of Life answer day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, not it’s Post Secret day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Anyway, can’t wait to read why you picked each of the flower.

    Also, I will call tomorrow morning after I hit the road, which will probably be about 10:30/11ish.

    Love you!
