Have you ever wondered how the symbol/letter X came to stand for Kiss?
Traced back to the Middle Ages, X was used to sign off on documents followed by the writer often kissing the mark signifying their oath. The gesture flourished as the common sign used to certify records, books, letters and paperwork.
X stood for Kiss, and the gesture gave life to the term “sealed with a kiss.”

Treat roses keep fresh when stored in an airtight container with a sealed lid, and fresh cut roses keep best when following these suggestions:
If a packet of flower food is included with your rose bouquet you will want to use it. Dissolve the food in a couple of tablespoons of warm water, stirring to completely dissolve.
Take roses out of wrap and remove leaves that will be below your desired water line. Cut each stem at an angle which allows optimal water intake. add it to the water to promote the buds opening and to slow any bacterial growth.
Place the roses in your container of choice and arrange to your liking. Placing the arrangement in a cool area away from heat vents and out of direct sunlight prolongs the life of the roses.
When the bloom and the beauty is off the rose(s), drying the roses to keep for sentimental reasons is an easy project.
Gather the amount of rose stems you want to dry, remove all the leaves from each stem, and bind stems together with a rubber band. Hang upside down for 2 to 3 weeks in a cool, dark place free of humidity.
