If you've been following along with my personal flower journey, #alitheflorist, I’m happy to be back with some updates! It’s been a minute since my last post, but like I said before, this has been a slow journey. However, things are beginning to pick up little by little, and I’m excited to fill you all in! Over the past month, I've had the opportunity to participate in some really cool experiences that have reignited the floral spark and continue to help educate me and grow as a budding designer. This may take a few blog posts (I tend to be an over-sharer at times – hope you like reading!) so stay tuned for more #alitheflorist updates!

Did you know the name for the month of June stems from the Latin name Junius “of Juno,” the Roman goddess of marriage? Juno also represents the wellbeing of women. In the flower industry we see June as the thick of wedding season. I had always thought that was because June is when summer officially starts. The weather is better in June and schedules are more flexible in the summer time… However, it seems there is a much deeper meaning to all things “June wedding.”

Over the past two weeks, we've been receiving stories & photos from customers who participated in the Memorial Day Flowers event. It was a day to use flowers to honor our U.S. service men and women who are no longer with us. We hope you had a great Memorial Day as well, remembering heroes past.

I plan on bringing our readers all things flora and fun, mixed with some serious posts about the flower business. I like to think of myself as pretty well-rounded - having passion for design (flowers, web, decor, etc.), marketing, photography, tech, and business. I'm a huge believer in continual education, so I'm always looking for new ideas and hope to share that journey with you!

Coming from a background in interior design, I'm trying my hand at flowers, and will be spending the next year learning the ins & outs of the business. I will be sharing my experiences as the new kid on the block, hoping to inspire other young, aspiring floral designers like myself. I grew up in the wholesale flower business, but hope to use my education and experience to eventually create a unique and innovative approach to floral design. Follow along for a blend of educational tid-bits, my thoughts & musings on the business, and a peek into my crazy journey into the world of flowers! #alitheflorist
