Today was my first day off in weeks. I momentarily toyed with the idea of cleaning out the garage/studio after our biggest record breaker week of all time but then I came to my senses and instead got out of dodge. Around here, unless you leave, there is always something that is begging to be done. It’s almost impossible to just “be” during the flower season.
So, instead of doing, I spent the afternoon wandering. I slowly strolled through thrift shops, the grocery stores, the fabric store… all by myself. No kids or texts from clients, no questions or plans. It.was.amazing.
Tomorrow the wild, beautiful and very full ride begins again but before it does I wanted to make sure and share some of the magic that I’ve been surrounded by these few past days.
This is really just a taste. There is oh so much more that we can relive when things slow down a bit. Weddings, bouquets, a life altering foodie celebration, huge rows of flowers, happy kids and animals…I’m going to flood you guys with images and stories a little later this season so if you can, please hold tight : )
A couple of little treasures on the internet I thought you might enjoy too:
, “what I learned from 50 naked people” made me cry.
If I were a man, I would propose this lovely of loveliest ladies, Amy Merrick
, in a heartbeat. She makes me want to be a better…well, everything. Follow her, you will be changed. I Promise!
This English darling, The Blue Carrot, is doing some really beautiful work with flowers from her very own cutting garden. Her facebook page
is quite the inspiration. Do give her thumbs up and you will be rewarded.
