Proud To Be An American With The USO Collection From FTD Flowers

**I received a bouquet of flowers which inspired this post.**



I met Tom in high school. And from the beginning, I knew he would be joining the military.

It didn't bother me. I knew it would be a tough life, but I was proud to be marrying a soldier.






Is it bizarre to be married to a person who would gladly give up their life for their country? Is it strange to know you are with someone who is trained to kill?



Sometimes. When he deploys I wonder if he'll return. Normally the places he deploys to are safe--but if more soldiers were required in other dangerous areas, my husband would volunteer. He'd think about us for a second, I know he would--but his first love is his country. I knew this when I said "I do."


Does it make my heart squeeze when our children have to say goodbye to him so often?




Yes. But I know it makes them stronger. They understand that their father is fighting for their freedom. For America.

Throughout all the changes we go through in the military, the USO has always been around to help. Whenever my husband deploys, there's usually a USO in an airport to help make his layover comfortable. There are places to sleep and snacks. Their main goal is to ensure our soldiers are taken care of. They also organize USO tours for our deployed troops to bring smiles to their faces.

FTD Flowers has partnered with the USO and is donating 5% of all sales to them if you order through their USO Collection.



There are gorgeous selections to choose from and with the upcoming 4th of July holiday, I opted for the Perfect Patriot Fiesta Rose Bouquet.



They smell and look amazing.



And maybe, whenever you look at them, you can think of a soldier who is deployed and missing his or her family and whisper a thank you.



You can gaze at the roses and be proud to be an American.

  7. It is very tempting when at a perfume counter to want to try out a whole variety of fragrances. This can in fact be counter-productive because you are likely to develop olfactory fatigue from smelling too many perfumes at a go. If the perfumes you're sampling all start to smell the same, it's time to take break. It is very tempting when at a perfume counter to want to try out a whole variety of fragrances.
