Hi Roadies 💘,

Welcome to the month of love!

During these long and cold winter days, it's the planning and promise of Valentine's Day that warms our hearts and brings smiles to our faces at Hanson Road. At most flower shops like ours, Love Day is a lifeline, pulling us through this seemingly never-ending stretch between Christmas and the much-awaited arrival of Spring.

We're thankful for Cupid's arrow in more ways than one!

Before becoming the owner of Hanson Road, I had no idea just how many different meanings Valentine's Day holds for so many different people.  It turns out that it is so much more than a day exclusively for romantic couples; it's a day of love, gratitude, and appreciation that extends far beyond my previous knowledge.

The Heart 2 Heart: Valentine's Day Collection we carefully crafted and deliver in Fredericton (and surrounding areas!) range from friends celebrating friendships, coffee-lovers throwing a little extra love to their favourite Barista, Auntie’s spoiling nieces and nephews, and so many more beautiful kinds of relationships.

This year in my family, we're planning a special Valentine's treat for the unsung heroes of our neighborhood - the incredible gentlemen who drive those VERY cool garbage trucks that faithfully visit our homes every Friday morning and make Ivy’s WEEK by waving and honking their horn for her! 

In a nutshell, I'd love to share my thoughts on Love Day:

Love knows no bounds:

Valentine's Day isn't just for romantic love. It's a celebration of love in all its forms. From the affection shared between grandparents and grandchildren to the camaraderie between teammates, this day gives us the chance to express our love and appreciation for everyone who holds a special place in our hearts.

A bouquet of surprises:

Our flower shop is buzzing with excitement as we create custom Heart 2 Heart arrangements to convey the unique sentiments of our customers. Whether it's a vibrant bouquet for a cherished teacher or a simple token of gratitude for your favorite checkout attendant at the grocery store, each arrangement tells a heartfelt story.

Embracing small gestures of kindness this year:

As we dive into the month of love, let's remember that Valentine's Day isn't limited to one definition. It's a day to celebrate the love that connects us all, whether it's through romantic gestures, friendships, or even surprising those who make our lives better.

So, Roadies, let's inspire one another to spread love and kindness this Valentine's Day and beyond. Whether it's a simple act of unexpected admiration for someone who brightens your day or a heartfelt gesture that leaves a lasting impact, let's make it a practice to remind the people in our lives just how much they mean to us.

After all, love has a way of making the world a warmer and more beautiful place, and that's something worth celebrating and sharing with others.

With love and flowers,
