When it comes to romance, Rocio Andujo's mom has set a golden standard.

The 21-year-old shared an anecdote that symbolized the passion between her mom, Rosalia, and her dad, Robert, and is inspiring others to adopt a special ritual.

The college student beamed about her romantic parents and told Buzzfeed News:

"[Of] all of the marriages I've seen my parents are one of my favorites & not [because] they're my parents but because I see how much respect they have for each [other]."

One day, Rocio made a beautiful discovery.

Her mother Rosalia had preserved flowers given by her husband when the pair were still dating.

"No one knew my mom had kept those flowers. She also still has the first bouquet of roses he gave her."


Rocio's father Robert was delighted to make the discovery at the same time. He had no idea about the flowers, and Rocio confirmed her dad was "so shocked and happy."

The proud daughter followed the romantic thread with pictures that captured various stages of her parents' together as a couple over a span of 27-years.


Rocio said that her mother played hard-to-get when she was younger, before giving in to Robert's dedicated charm.

"My mom always knew my dad was a ladies' man & wouldn't really take any girl serious so she always rejected him," Rocio told Buzzfeed, adding, "because she didn't want to be just another girl on his list (her words)."

"After a year & months of my dad chasing after my mom & trying to get a chance with her she finally gave him a chance since she saw that he kept insisting and insisting even after she would reject him."

Eventually, Robert won Rosalia's heart, and her love consequently made him a better man.

"Well all that rejecting made my dad fall over heels... people would always ask my mom what she did to my dad because he changed so much with my mom in a good way."

For someone previously known as a reputable "ladies' man," people couldn't help but notice how much Robert was enamored with Rosalia.

"Everyone could see how in love my dad was with my mom and everyone would get surprised because they had never seen my dad so in love with a girl before."

The discovery of the preserved flowers just made everything sweeter.


Inspired by Rosalia's floral symbol of her love, Rocio's Twitter followers began sharing their variations on the tradition.








Some regretted not knowing how to properly dry their flowers.


But fear not, the good people of Twitter offered their sage expertise.






Others are noticing how Rocio's parents have not let their looks go.






Rocio's post is giving disenchanted people hope that enduring love can still exist.

"I hope everyone gets to see more about my post so they can bring back all those romantic gestures & pure love that doesn't really exist anymore."


Nothing could be sweeter.

I don't see the appeal of these rooms.

Why would one enjoy being trapped in a room?

When you watch people trapped in a movie you cheer for their release.

But this activity has gotten super popular.

And people have gotten real creative in their escapes.

Redditor CaptainCatButt wanted to hear confessions from the great escapes. They asked:

"Escape Room employees, what's the weirdest way you've seen customers try and solve an escape room?"

Much of the nation continues to reel from the news that a leaked draft opinion indicated the Supreme Court's ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will move to strike down Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark decision that protects a person's right to choose reproductive healthcare without excessive government restriction.

Many people remember what it was like in the days before women could seek an abortion; many innocent women died in the absence of proper medical care or were forced to birth children they could not afford, trapping them in poverty.

But could a ruling overturning Roe v. Wade signal the loss of other rights in the future, especially those decided on the right to privacy, on which Roe was hinged?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor thisiscubes asked the online community,

"Americans of Reddit, what are your thoughts on Roe v. Wade being overturned by SCOTUS as per draft reports?"
