The holidays enabled us to take some extra time away from social media if only by default because it was so busy!
The Top9 generator confirmed my suspicion that my audience is wanting to connect more, see more of what I do and why, as well as seeing the pretty flowers. One thing in 2018 stands out the most.

The year was going swimmingly; connecting with old and new clients, enjoying our renovated space, celebrating our expansion, and ramping up for an amazing wedding season.
The day before a very large wedding in May, Mike had a heart attack. Not many people know this, our closest friends and family, our employees and some incredible people who helped us out during and after this ordeal. He is fine now, just figuring out the best way to stay healthy and dealing with random wtf days of not feeling quite right. Needless to say, trauma effects the whole family. I maneuvered through that evening and the next day wedding set up, flip, and breakdown like a machine. Everything went off without a hitch and I knew Mike was safe in the hospital. Telling a 10 year old this news however, was not as easy as pulling off an intricate wedding. Thankful that Mike was smart and aware enough to get himself to the ER that day. I still get the worried “where’s Daddy” question if I pick Cash up from school on a day Mike usually would. In time, surprise changes in schedule will become normal again for him. Life goes on and we are a grateful and thankful family.

The past year has taught us patience, gratitude and perseverance. I’ve asked for help when I needed it, kept a positive attitude in the face of adversity and pushed myself creatively with fun events and our recent commitment to giving up floral foam! Thanks to @hollychapple
for creating the floral pillow and egg forms and @floraguppy
for sending us products to try out and rid our floral kitchens of the nasty foam!
BE WELL FRIENDS & CREATE FROM THE HEART ♥️ #heartattackwedding #lovewhatyoudo #floralartist #fineartflowers #artofflowers #itsalifestyle #flowerdetails #slowflowers #nofloralfoam
