Victory is sweet


June being nearly over is cause for celebration in the floral biz. Each weekend has been stuffed full with weddings, we've made flowers for 13 brides this month. After our last June wedding I devoured a piece of blueberry cheesecake from Baked in about 2 minutes as a "celebration". I did not know it was possible to eat so fast while basically sleepwalking with exhaustion.




I can honestly say I still love weddings. It's beyond sweet to be a part of a couple's wedding day and I never get tired of of seeing a girl in a white dress looking nervous or thrilled or dazed.

That being said- it is not lost on me that all of these weddings have turned my life into the "before" of a bad 90s romantic comedy. Quirky girl spends her days making bouquets for weddings and romantic boyfriends and then goes home to disheveled apartment filled with long haired cats and floral dresses. And eats a lot of cheesecake in the process.

(And honestly- a house to one's self and lots of cheesecake sounds just as good if not better than this so-called "marriage" thing people keep talking about.)

  4. Ha! What a sweet little post - in more ways than one! I too love cheesecake and, although I love Mr. Wolf too, I must admit I sometimes fantasize about being in the very same situation as you, albeit with my long-haired dog ;)

  5. First, that cheesecake looks orgasmically delicious.
    Second, I think that no woman should ever view her life as a fast track to the altar. There is more to life, and you seem to be living a very full one. But that's just my women's studies-ness talking.

    I've just recently joined your ranks, and have been enjoying your posts.

  6. I can relate to the happy feeling with participating in weddings. I've had a few custom orders for groomsmen and weddings, and it's such a thrill to participate in someone's special day... to contribute in some way to their vision.

    really loved this post, btw. especially those cheesecake photos. yumm.

  13. The cheesecake looks so yummy ! Guess I'm a bit like you, floral dresses for sure, and despite not having long haired cats to keep me company, I definitely have a soft spot for cats :)

  17. Hey, I love those cheesy, sappy movies.
    And I always revel in the feeling "someone could make a movie out of my life, I feel so [sad/happy/embarrassed/fill-in-the-blank] at this moment." ah, confessions of a drama geek. :)

  18. Just started following your blog and this post made me smile. Blueberry cheesecake (that you don't have to share) and fluffy, long-haired, don't-have-to-do-their-laundry cats? That's bliss.

  30. I just ran across this blog entry you wrote back earlier in the summer, and it made me smile. In some ways you have really summed up my life. Especially the "before" part of romantic comedies. :) Hooray for cheesecake and being okay with life, even when you're the "before."

    At least this means we have fun in the meantime and that there's a good chance the "after" will truly be awesome.

  31. Hello!
    I found your blog through your Yahoo article. Ever since, I have missed many breakfasts choosing to lay in bed a while longer to read your posts. Thank you for sharing a piece of your life. Your blog is beautifully written and your photographs are equally as beautiful having me envy your sense of adventure, your cute cats, your collection of blue and white dishes and your sense of style and fashion. Oh! and all your plants are to die for! I chose this post to comment on because I didn't want to be another one of the 100 something comments on your latest posts :) and because as it is 1:45 PM in the middle of a snow storm in good ol' Minnesnowta, and I still haven't had breakfast OR lunch, tummy grumbling, just wishing it was summer and that I had that piece of deliciousness on a plate in front of me. You are truly inspirational and my only regret to reading your entire blog so fast is that now I have to wait for your next post to come, just like everyone else. shucks.
    peace and love!
    Taryn
