My oh my! It has been a long time since I have posted anything on here! I guess I have A LOT to catch you up on! I have been so busy lately with work, my daughter and of course, weddings! I love having an active schedule but things like posting to my blog and updating my website seems to fall through the cracks. So, I have re-organized my life and now am doing a “tune up” on Blissful Blossoms.
I am going to do something a little different for this post. I am going to get personal! (so serious…the pressure is on!) I had a wonderful opportunity a few months ago to purchase a flower shop here in town. Now, as most of you know I do not do flowers full time. I mostly do weddings and special orders on the side of working full time at an eye doctor’s office. So when this opportunity presented itself to me, I immediately responded. My mind began creating this perfect world where I would own a shop and be surrounded by flowers all day, every day! But, somethings are meant to happen at a certain time. The news of not getting the shop was devastating. I felt as though my dreams had been crushed. Then one day (and a whole carton of Ben and Jerry’s later) I realized that I am still capable of doing what I love to do! It may not mean flowers all day everyday, but I get to experience that every once in a while and that was ok with me.
Do you ever look around your house and think, “Something needs to change.” I had one of the Ah-Ha moments but instead of redecorating my home, I am redecorating my business. Flowers have always been a special part of my life. I love getting into the groove of a wedding and just relaxing in a room filled with luscious flowers. But, I have other responsibilities as well. My daughter Peyton will be turning 4 in December (I just had a mini panic attack! They grow so fast!) I also work full time so I am able to provide for her and buy her cute little outfits.
😉 But I have found that with these other responsibilities, I have put my business on the back burner. At the time, it seemed like the right thing to do. But now that my little one is in school and I have a good grip on my job, I don’t see why I should limit something that brings me such joy. That’s when I decided NO MORE!! I am going to go full force with my business because it is what I love! Blissful Blossoms is getting a face life (and by the look of my old blog posts, it needed it…bad).
Blissful Blossoms is getting a new name! Nothing too drastic but enough to give you all a heads up about it. Blissful Blossoms will now be known as Blissful Blooms Floral Design. Yes, I know. I only changed one word and I pretty much abbreviated it. Hey, its’ called baby steps for a reason. Over the last two years I have been involved in many weddings and many promotional shoots. I am going to do my best to make a weekly blog post. It is a lot to promise, but I can promise that I will do my best to keep up with everything.
In conclusion, Blissful Blooms is reinventing itself! A whole new style, a whole new look. I am excited to share with you new promotions I have planned and all of the work I have done the past two years.
