How do you say "Lilac"?
Kory and I have been having this ongoing debate on how to pronounce the word "Lilac". He says it is "LIE-LACK" and I say it is "LIE-LOCK"...The dictionary says its both. I really don't care, but every time I say LIE-LOCK or talk about them Kory corrects me and says "LIE-LACK". But I am curious what you all think on the subject.
Moving on...I really like the smell of Lilac bushes. It is one of my favorite things about spring and nature, and it reminds me of my childhood house, and my mom. So naturally I was just thrilled when I found out that the mass amount of dead shrubs in our back yard turned into about a dozen really big "Lilac" bushes. We don't intend on keeping all of them because of where they were planted. (right smack in the middle of our yard) But I decided today that I wanted to bring some of them inside. I don't own a single vase, (except for the one I borrowed from my mother in-law that already has flowers in it) so I created one out of a small jar that once held some peanut butter. I cleaned it out and put a ribbon on it! I know right, super creative! I don't know, I thought it was cute...
