Faith, Family and Flowers

I’ve been thinking about starting this blog for years. There have been many times that I’ve written a paragraph in my head and thought…”This is brilliant!!… I wonder if someone else would think this is helpful/funny/insightful/creative?” But I never got around to actually doing it. You know… laundry, babysitting grandbabies, and I don’t know… watching tv? Well anyway, lucky you, because today is the day! I have so many things I would like to say, and that will come, but today I want to tell you how I decided what I’d write about.

Faith, Family and Flowers are really the pillars of my life. Faith:​ I love me some Jesus. Plain and simple. Life is a journey and at the tender age of 50 I’m learning to be a little more vocal about my walk. Wish it wouldn’t have taken me this long, but there you have it. Faith in Jesus. Family:​ I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my family. All of them. The family that raised me, the family that my husband and I raised, and the family of people that do not share blood, but that I have chosen for myself. Side note: If you are in one of these groups, I will try my best to not embarrass you with stories that I have saved up for years; unless I feel they will give people a good laugh. Then, you’re on your own. Love of family. Flowers: You will find this blog on my floral website. Studio Fiore is a small, local wedding and event florist. I love flowers. They make me happy. They are perfection, truly. I’m in awe when I contemplate the way they grow, the way they smell, the way that they are each a perfect little miracle every time they bloom. A little bit of God’s mystery, love and providence for all to see. With permission, I plan to share details of weddings that I have the honor of designing, showing photos of the process and hopefully some of the happy couple. Weddings are a celebration and I am filled with joy each and every time I’m allowed to be a small part of such a sacred day.

Faith, Family and Flowers. What else would I write about? See you soon!
