Slow Down

If you look close at this Dahlia, you will see a small bug on a petal.   Taking time to notice the smallest details is a way to calm the anxiety and hustle in my brain.  Getting outside in the dirt, listening to the birds, and seeing flowers and little creatures involves all the senses: feel, see, hear, smell, even taste at times.  Using our senses like this, away from our phones and computers, is so healing.  I’m always learning how to heal my autoimmune, hormonal issues and adrenal fatigue.  So, try it!  Get in your garden, slow down, use your senses, and see how healing it can be.

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.

Hooray Magazine Feature

What an honor to have Hooray Magazine pick up a shoot I styled for a Mother – Daughter Brunch.  The shoot was a dream to style and dream up.  It was a labor of love, that featured my daughter, myself, and my dear friend Laura and her daughters.  What a talented group of ladies.  We all used our talents to make this shoot so lovely.  Here is the link to the article Mothers+Daughters.  Thanks Roma Bea Images for the great photos!

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!!!
