I wasn't going to do this challenge partly because of my camera, but partly because it's hard to sum yourself up in one photograph, even if a picture is worth 1000 words. This afternoon, however, I saw this vase of daisies sitting on my TV console, and realized that they were perfect for this challenge.
Daisies are a simple flower. They're pretty and cheery, yet understated and not the "go to" flower. They require more thought than just heading straight for the rose bouquets. I like their simple beauty. They're applicable for this challenge because I think of myself as mostly a simple girl. I don't need my husband to bring me roses; daisies would be nice every now and then (though I bought these for myself). I don't have fancy clothes or fancy home decor. I didn't need a fancy wedding; the mantra my husband and I kept repeating was that we wanted "simple elegance." So I guess the daisies work well for ME.
