May 22


Yesterday I returned home from Philosophy Flowers workshop.  First off, let me just say that Kelly Perry herself  is an absolutely enchanting and sweet soul with a huge passion and fabulous eye for floral.  Secondly, each and every other girl I met while there was just as delightful.  I was truly in flower heaven sitting with my flower friends in the mountains of Boone, NC.

One of the common themes that kept repeating itself throughout the workshop was the idea of rest.  While this workshop did truly feel like more of a vacation than “work” – I would not necessarily say it was restful.  Truth be told, I was exhausted by the end of my trip – and getting up at 3:30 in the morning to travel home didn’t exactly help that!

But when I finally made it home, I saw my world in a whole new light.  Stepping away from the everyday enabled me to be filled with new wonder upon my return.  Yesterday I took a walk and I simply saw things differently.  I fell in love with flowers even deeper while away and that new light and appreciation followed me home.  I stopped and picked some branches and blooms up along my walk.  I paid attention to the very subtle color variations and imagined all new flower combinations.

Rest is good for the soul.  Working too hard will just wear you out and make you weary.  We weren’t put on this earth to be run down, but rather to embrace new friendships, to worship and rejoice.
