(WFIE/NBC News) She may not have been the intended receiver, but a New York woman says she's feeling the love all the way from Kentucky after a Valentine's Day gift mistakenly made its way nearly a thousand miles to her home.

The bouquet of balloons originated at Sunshine Garden, Gift and Floral in Greenville, Kentucky.

"It was very windy, if you remember, on Valentine's day; they opened the door, they blew out," store owner Misty Vincent recalls.

The balloons accidentally slipped out around 1:30 in the afternoon Thursday.

In less than 24 hours later, they made their way to a home 90 miles north of New York City.

Karen, who lives in New York, says her husband saw them around 6:30 a.m. Friday as he left for work. She later decided to call the number on the card.
