Tragedy has struck before I even had the chance to tell of my Ikea exploits.

Two things (of many) I was excited about purchasing at Ikea were the cheap plants and nice little white pots. I purchased two Tropisk plants for only $1.50 each and aloe vera which I believe was around $5. I also bought five pots.

Matt and I were transporting four plants (new basil mixed in there) to Bailey’s house so she could lovingly water them while we were in North Carolina for a long weekend. Loading the car, I set the aloe on the roof to free up my hand. And proceeded to totally forget about it.

Our poor aloe baby now lays amongst the shattered remains of it’s heroic white pot on Broad Street.

My heart is broken. And yes, I am that attached to my plants.
