Simplicity 

 sim·plic·i·ty –  1.  freedom from complexity;  2. absence of luxury, pretentiousness, ornament, etc.; plainness: a life of simplicity

A life of simplicity.   What does that look like?  In my humble (simple) opinion, it looks like a life that has room or space to it.   Unhurried, uncluttered and unstressed. 

Gardening and foraging at home to create with, fits a simple life.  It causes you to unplug, get your hands dirty, and slow down. 

This foraged bougainvillea placed in a handmade ceramic pot, is an example of simple.  By using one type of flowering branches, loosely placed, there is a simplicity that is restful to look at.  Try it!

Thailand

IMG_1637

Thailand.  A country of great beauty, and great heartache.

I had the privilege to be there in October 2014, and again in May 2015.  Both times, teaching floral design to the women at Samaritan Creations Ministry.  A ministry, in Bangkok, Thailand, that is helping women break free from the bondage of the sex industry.

What a blessing for God to use my gifts to help these women learn a trade, that could help them support themselves.  I feel honored to have been welcomed and embraced by them.  I am so humbled by how hard they work, and how much they have overcome.   If you want to check out their ministry go to Samaritan Creations.

Vibrant Colors for a Spring Wedding

It is always a privilege to work with my clients and get to know them!  I love how each bride is so unique, and their personality is reflected in the flower choices they make.  This bride wanted vibrant colors for her flowers, and she is such a sweet and vibrant person!  It was very fun pulling the florals together for this wedding.  You can’t help but feel happy with these colors around you!!!
