I can't believe October is almost over.

We have accomplished a lot this month in our wedding business and last night we had an amazing opening party, (thanks to everyone who came out! ). These are some shots before all of you pretties came to hang. Thanks for these pics  Stephanie Bassos.

Looking forward to meeting with our new clients, organizing and planning for next year in the last 2 months of this year. Figuring out this business stuff is fun but sometimes challenging, however, I am so excited for what's to come.

So, now it's halloween and I am facing the dilemma of a costume because I did not take the time to come up with one. Looks like I will be pulling together a mash of halloween pasts to come up with a costume. Plus, I think I will need a nap.

I hope you all have a great Halloween and bridge into the "holiday season". I am going to try to keep up with the blog now. Because it is so easy to slack. And sorry for being all over the place with this post, it's just how it goes today.


it's a little party

This week is our busiest so far this year. It's been so awesome to see the growth of Foxglove since January. Making this my full time gig, getting a new roof for production and office and sharing flowers with all of you.

Come check it out. The girls of INDO, Stephanie Bassos along with us are having a little studio/halloween party to share our space with you. Feel free to stop by the space on Oct. 30th from 6-9pm to enjoy drinks, snacks and awesome people. Costumes are encouraged of course and this will be a perfect little preview of this years Halloween for you. Take that costume on a test drive before the big day.



thursday morning

I woke up this morning in a good mood. My finger itched a bit from a bee sting that I kindly received on the upper level of the Mariano's parking lot yesterday. It's been years since I have been stung by a bee, and frankly, I was a little nervous as my mother and brother are pretty allergic to the suckers. Then I thought about how I probably just killed a bee, and started feeling bad about slapping him.

I am prepping for our Humboldt House workshop that is this evening. Jeanie's delivery guy is going to be dropping off the flowers here at the studio any minute now. Can't wait to see them. I always get a little giddy when I know I will be in the presence of well grown flowers. 

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. About traveling, growing and starting new projects that are bigger then anything I think I could really launch. I guess that is how every new business venture starts. 

Oh, also bought tickets for Seth and I to travel West in February. Really happy because February in Chicago is brutal and sad, so I am going to be very happy to get to warmer lands. I have never been to Las Vegas, Joshua Tree or Palm Springs. Any places/sites/flower farmers that we should check out along our journey? Let me know, because I want to make this trip count.
