on summer vacation.

I cannot believe that 4th of July weekend has come and gone. It's my favorite weekend of the entire year. I love how its a holiday that brings everyone together to just celebrate the weather, good food, family, fun, freedom & the things in life that make us happiest. 

Business wise I am gearing up for my busiest month ever in August. We have an event every single Saturday except one. It'll be a blast, I am so looking forward to designing for my best friend's baby shower in Charlotte, collaborating with Sincerely Ginger Weddings & Events for some weddings & for a few other styled shoots and site visits. 

As we move towards the crazy time I am soaking in every bit of summer I possibly can. Spending more time outside, grilling, entertaining in the backyard and sleeping lots. 

When I started the flower journey in January I never dreamed it would have grown this fast. My head is spinning with plans and dreams for where this can take us. But I am reminded to slow down and enjoy the moments when it's small and mighty. Every day when I walk out to my car I check on my Cafe Au Lait Dahlias. They are a sort of anchor for me to remember to take it slow. As a business owner I too am a lot like the dahlias, figuring it out as I grow, tackling hurdles, adapting, changing, thriving and striving for beauty. 

This has been a wild ride so far, thanks for tagging along on the journey.
