I knew you loved me when we were looking through Netflix’s one night. You had never seen the Breakfast Club and I told you we had to watch it. Then 5 minutes in I fell asleep, but you watched the entire movie and only woke me up when it was done. I apologized for falling asleep and you said it was fine. I knew you didn’t like the movie, but instead of watching something you wanted to watch you watched the entire thing, because I wanted you to.
"millions of flower petals erupt from a volcano, covering an entire village"

“Tucked inside a limestone cavern, this summer-only spot (open May through October) has hosted elegant dinners since the 18th century, when Italian nobility held banquets in the space.” - Conde` Nast Traveler

Why Alysia Montano wears a flower in her hair during every race.
Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.
As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.
The flower remains Montano’s trademark even though her opponents are now world-class female middle-distance runners.
"The flower to me means strength with femininity," Montano said in June after winning the 800 at the U.S. Olympic trials. "I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong."
