It’s such a strange feeling to be at home Valentine’s day morning, sipping coffee and working on a blog post. For so many years my Valentine’s day mornings were spent up at 5am, working away all day at the flower shop filling orders and helping lovers impress that certain someone. There’s a part of me that misses the long work days, sore fingers and deliriousness that would always, without fail, make their appearances the days leading up to Valentine’s day, but there’s an even larger part of me that’s happy to put it all to rest. I’ve never really cared much for Valentine’s day (except that it was always the time of year that my largest paycheck came…let’s be honest here) as I’ve always thought it would be better to express love to those you cared about year round rather than going big once a year….not only that but Valentine’s day is so commercialized that the creativity seems to have been sucked dry and the old fashioned romance and intrigue of it all is seemingly lost. So, this year rather than me making countless flower arrangements and Josh delivering them all we’ll go see our midwife, make some dinner, work on a project for Ellis’s room and maybe get an ice cream….plain and simple….just the way I like it. xo
As for the flowery love this week….our work was featured twice! Once on Green Wedding Shoes for Hallie+Luke’s ‘True Love is a Big Deal’ bash and once on Style Me Pretty for Katherine+Ryan’s intimate and very heartfelt celebration. See the full posts HERE & HERE.
