let's get woo woo

When I worked at my last "job" in a cute little flower shop over 9 years ago, I knew I wanted to start my own business.  Not because I REALLY wanted to, but because where I wanted to work, didn't exist.  So I created it.

During that time at the last flower shop, there was this gorgeous woman who frequented the shop. She was intelligent, fierce, decisive and carried herself like a queen. I was immediately drawn to her. She questioned my motivation to be working at a low level paying job with a VERY difficult boss. As perplexing it was at the time, as my boss was beyond manageable, I explained my motivation and she got it.  

After that point, she motivated me with kind, but firm words. She told me I could do it, and I believed her. 

That was over 9 years ago, at least that's my best estimated guess. This past Spring I met with a bride, her mom and the event planner.  I for a moment recognized the mom (Ms. Kaldis), but what you don't know is that I have a horrible tendency to think I know someone that I really don't.  After MANY embarrassing moments, I've given up on the idea that I "recognize" anyone.

In our last meeting to review everything, Ms. Kaldis mentioned that she lived in the community directly next to the flower shop I used to work in. So I quickly mentioned if she ever went to that flower shop.  After a few words, it was confirmed, it was her.  I could have cried, shouted, and just died right there out of sheer joy.  The stars aligned.

This is what we created for her gorgeous daughter, Alex's wedding.
