One summer during high school, I worked at a flower shop out here on Nantucket. Well, the flower shop. It wound up being my only summer as an employee there (probably because I missed the clothing discounts that came with working in retail) but I’ll always look back fondly on the time I spent cutting in flowers and delivering bouquets to hotels on the island. Flowers just make people so happy! They’re beautiful, fragrant, and indulgent in a way that’s not at all superficial. Pop by your favorite florist this evening and treat yourself to a few fresh blooms — you deserve it!
