Number One: Who am I? Well, let's see...I am a mother of two little munchkins. A wife of six years to a wonderful man. I am a florist!!! I feel blessed to have found my passion in life. I am a sister, daughter and granddaughter. I love my goofy family! I am an entrepreneur. I am brave and not afraid to try new things. Things that I am not...I have never been called lazy. Usually I work myself to the brink of madness! Often I am not exactly the tidiest of people (hey, creative people are a bit ADD when they have to organize and clean things). I am not perfect. Not even gonna try. But I do learn from my mistakes and count them. I take criticism and critique well and find value in other people's ideas and creative processes. Not to say I don't know when someones opinion shouldn't count though. There are always going to be haters LOL.
Number Two: Why did you start blogging?
So, I've always had something to say. I get that from my dad I think. But really, I've wanted to blog for a long time. My husband didn't add a blog to my first website because he didn't realize that I wanted to do it. I find it a part of being a business owner. A part of wanting to share my education, experiences, and just random stuff with people. Brides, florists, gardeners, flower lovers, and anyone interested in some way. I have a list a mile long of blog articles I want to write! I just lack the time to do it...husband yells at me for the gap between my posts. Wedding season ripped my energy from me. I need to make it a routine though. I am determined!
Number three: Who is this blog for?
This blog is for anyone who smiles like a small child when they get a bouquet of flowers.
Number Four: What's something I've been working on that I'm REALLY proud of?
I've got ideas coming out of my ears. I just wrapped up wedding season and finished the fall bridal shows in my area. Now I'm gearing up for the holidays already. I did get myself booked into a few holiday festivals and expos this year which I'm quite proud of. I haven't had the get up and go to get on it this early in the past. Usually by the time I think of it, it has passed me by, which sucks since that could be a lot of sales. I am also teaming up with my mom and hosting DIY wreath making and wine tasting. (she is a bar owner) I am working out the details, but super excited to be offering up my knowledge and having a fun class available soon!
Number Five: What's the one MESSAGE that I hope people take away from my blog?
hmm. The one idea? That's tough. I would hope it would be something like "wow, there's a lot to the floral industry I didn't know"...But it's probably going to be something like "OMG! this chick admitted to accidentally gluing her eyelashes together with floral glue."
