Last week was completely surreal. To be honest I’m still quite speechless about it all.
I want to gush on and on about all of the amazing things I absorbed, the floral magic I witnessed, the honest and totally awesome conversations I had but there just aren’t any words that can capture it, at least not yet.
The past handful of days I have been holding the whole experience quite close to my heart for fear that sharing the details might diminish the potency.
What I can say is that I am completely humbled by the realness, honesty and generosity that Sarah shared with me.
She let me see behind the curtain, answered all of my questions and encouraged me to forge my own way. That kind of gift is so priceless and so very rare I think the only way I’ll ever pay it back is by paying it forward somewhere on down the line.
Sharing is a profound gift. You never know what your openness will inspire.
It could very well change someones life.
Sarah, thank you. What an honor.

I am in the same boat Erin! Sarah Winward of Honey of A Thousand Flowers opened her door to me and has me on board as her apprentice this summer. I can't tell you how in love with the florist industry I am. I feel that so many talented florists out there are being so open and kind! This experience has been life changing already and I have Sarah W. to thank for giving me the tools and the space to observe and create. Those hardworking florists claim that it isn't as magical as we observers think it is… I disagree, just from watching Sarah W. I have felt the magic! Even though I worked 10 straight hours last saturday for a wedding- hauling flowers, water buckets, making a garland that never seemed to end, gathering rocks and more, all in 100 degree Utah heat… I am sold to floristry ;) Thanks for sharing your gratitude. We have a lot to be thankful for.
