The Rose Debate


Once upon a time I was in love with flowers. All kinds of them really, but that doesn't really work in life. People want you to have favorites and after all, we all kind of have them. (I really don't understand the people who say that they don't have favorites. Seriously? Do these people really exist? Or, are they like the Runaway Bride, they've just never bothered to choose them?) So I picked mine, ignorantly, deciding that I liked Lilies best of all. Really, they are a beautiful flower. 
However, when my grandma died, we got all these bouquets and flower arrangements. ALL of them had lilies. I really don't think that there was a single one without them. Our house STANK of lilies. In case you were wondering, while Lilies are a beautiful flower, they aren't the most pleasant to smell, which is maybe why they decided to associate them with death. 
Now I can't do it. I can't say that lilies are my favorite. The smell of them literally makes me sick now. 
So I have been on a quest, to find a new favorite flower. And guess what. I still don't have one. I really like roses, but if you know me, I'm not into being just like everyone else (to my own detriment at times), but that's also a really stupid reason not to choose something as your favorite. But with all the flowers in the world, there's got to be one that is more beautiful.
However, I'm kind of attached to roses. 
Reasons that they are kind of amazing:
1. They are one of the few things that I know how to draw.
2. Belle has pretty much always been my favorite disney princess. Belle+Roses... it's a thing.
3. Someone once told me that I seem like "sunshine and roses" and I've never forgotten the phrase.
4. I've been compared to a rose by more than one person. (Pretty, but I have my thorns), also apparently they "just fit" me. It has also been suggested that I get a rose tattoo, not that I would ever get a tattoo, but if someone is suggesting that because they think Roses go with you that much, it's reason to take pause right?
5. The Little Prince. The Little Prince is near and dear to my heart. 

So you see, I kind of want to choose roses, but I just don't know if I can do it! What do you guys think? I don't know why I'm opening this for public voting, but I am :)


Let me know what you think!
