Welcome to my blog. Just yesterday I was talking to a good friend who informed me that I should have started this “yesterday”. So, without waisting any more time, her I am beginning my journey into the blogging world. I don’t know much about it so please bare with me but at the same time I hope you enjoy what I have to share.
First and far most, I am a wife to a wonderful and supportive husband who reminds me to follow my passions and utilize my abilities. I have him to thank for leading me back into the flower business and giving me the strength, determination and belief that I can make something out of this on my own and need to. Why not, right? We should do what we love and are good at and pass it on to others who can enjoy it in return. Second, I am an extremely blessed mother of two amazing boys who keep me on my toes and every day remind me what life is all about. As my mother has put it “Live the Dream.” She has instilled in us that life is too short and that we need to live it up, make the most of it and enjoy every moment we have. She is a living, breathing example of this and puts a smile on my face everyday. She lived her dream of owning a business and has guided me to do the same.
Finally, there is me. As a child I don’t remember having much of an interest in flowers or really even noticing them much but this could have been due to the fact that I grew up with three brothers. My adventure with flowes began when I was in high school and my mother convinced my father to buy the hometown flower shop. They didn’t know what they were getting into but as a family we would make it thrive. Over the twelve years we owned the shop, we tripled business and expanded our knowledge. Throughout these years I grew a special passion for flowers, their design and the effect they can have on people. One of my favorite quotes is “A room without flowers is a room without life.” The beauty, fragrance and liveliness of flowers has a certain affect on us and makes me want to be surrounded by them constantly, whether inside a room or outside in the garden.
Through this blog I hope to make you more aquainted with flowers and my passion for them. There is much to come and I know this will be quite an interesting experience. I know I will learn a lot from this process and perhaps you’ll learn something by reading my blog too. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or post comments. I can hardly wait to get feedback and dig deeper into the world of flowers.
