a family affair

Written by
I’ve gotta say, I absolutely love my family!

These guys are so freaking supportive, hard working and flexible when it come to keeping the little flower business churning.

With the kiddos being old enough to help now things are getting more and more efficient and fun.

Jasper is the sticker master, labeling hundreds and hundreds of sleeves every week. This simple task saves me so much time and makes bouquet making and bunching a million times smoother.

Sometimes if we’re not on too much of a time crunch the kids like to get in on the bouquet making action. Their final creations are so darling I can hardly stand it!!

 Jasp is determined to get the hang of it so he can help me get done faster .

 I cannot imagine what it would be like to do this whole wild adventure without them : )
