I had just started dating my boyfriend when my 21st birthday came around.
The week before we had given each other flowers. He had taken the ones I gave him and pressed them. He bought a box that had a picture frame for a lid and he put the Lily of the Valleys and a cherry blossom into it. Lily of the Valley means “return to happiness” and cherry blossoms mean “spiritual beauty.”
He told me it was a memory box that we can fill with things while we date. It was so sweet.
