{what women want}

I went to Europe for three weeks when I was 18 and bought tons of postcards. Tonight I was going through all my old stuff that has been in storage, and I came across a stack of my European postcards. Did I notice a theme? YES! Ha ha it was so funny because although it was before my professional florist days, I guess I just had an affinity for flowers. Almost every postcard had something to do with flowers! I had to chuckle. This one is my favorite. Don't you love it? What woman wouldn't want a pony-tailed male model on a scooter to bring them beautiful blooms?

{soundtrack of l'amour}

Like I said in a previous post, my website is in the process of being updated right now. On my new version, I will be having a soundtrack. I would love to hear suggestions of good love songs! I have a few that I will for sure be using but I am up for suggestions. I love music! What are your favorite lovey dovey tunes?

{macon mission memories}

I can't resist posting this kodak moment. I served my mission in the great Southern state of Georgia. I was in the Macon mission which is about as 'south' as you can get! I loved every minute! This picture is of Donna and Michael's wedding that my companion and I helped with. Donna is the daughter of one of our converts. I made that bouquet with flowers from a member's garden (thanks Nana Nancy!) and greenery from bushes at the church! Pretty good- and thrifty I might add- for a missionary, huh? :) Ah, memories....

{sneak peek}

Khristen's reception was last night and it was absolutely gorgeous! I'm going to limit myself to posting only one of my own pictures because I want to wait until I see the professional ones. I can't wait!

{khristen's bouquet}

Khristen is getting sealed at 7 o'clock tonight and then her reception is tomorrow. She's giving me some copies of her professional pictures in a few weeks but I wanted to post some pictures that I took myself. I LOVE this bouquet!!!!!! I think Khristen will love it too and I can't wait to see the 'real' pictures!

{khristen's bridals}

Khristen's wedding is this weekend and let me say it is going to be gorgeous! Her colors are green, black, and cream. She is so pretty and here are some of her bridals from her blog- or as she calls them 'groomals' since her fiance was in tow.

{weird car accident!}

The following story has nothing to do with flowers or weddings.
However, I thought it was noteworthy.
I was on my way to work this morning, and the car in front of me was driving VERY slowly; significantly under the speed limit of 25 mph. Now, my pet peeve is when people go under the speed limit, especially when I'm late. But, there was a handicap symbol on the liscence plate and I could see that the lady driving was a bit older, so I was being patient.
Fast forward to when we get to the stoplight. The lady went to turn right, the same way I was going. For over a minute she sat there as the first car at the intersection and didn't turn right, although she had plenty of opportunity to go. Again, I was patient.
Then suddenly out of the blue, her brake lights come off and she slams on the gas in reverse!!!! I honked really loud and long, but it was too late. She rammed into my car (which, by the way just barely got a new bumper put on less than a month ago- good timing). Anyway who does that? You don't reverse at an intersection! Especially without even thinking that there could possibly be someone behind you! Anyway, this little old lady gets out and told me she 'didn't see me'. I don't know how someone misses an EXCURSION. Oh well. Luckily she and I are okay. Just thought I'd tell you my little story.
