Attempting to grow more flowers this year in my own garden! Accepting all tips and advice about growing David Austin roses - I’ve got my first bush flowering and it was worth every penny! Now to keep it alive and flourishing! 🙏🏼
Wedding season must be heating up because I’ve already had my recurring nightmare in which I forget to make bridesmaid bouquets and scramble to make them out of foraged weeds while a thunderstorm unexpectedly rolls in and destroys our ceremony setup 😂 😳 Anyway, beautiful bout portrait by @shannonmoffit 🌿
Motherhood took me by surprise, took my breath away. Of everything in my life, it’s the thing that has shaped me most. It has caused me to stop, to stay, to be still. To let go of striving, to let some opportunities pass me by, to embrace less. And yet as I let some things slip away, it has urged me with tenderness to hold tightly to the smallest of things, the slow, often mundane moments of life at home. With them. My heart living outside my body... Moment captured by my dear @amynicolephoto
Now that I have little ones, I’m even more obsessed with making flowers for the little guys - just look at that precious flowergirl in her crown! Photo @rachelmayphoto
Is this real life? 🌿 Doesn’t get better than this view, that light and this epic shot by @rachelmayphoto at @pippinhillfarm as seen on @martha_weddings.
Before we settled on James for our daughter, Poppy was on my short list. I mean just look at these cheerful beauties! Photo: @elisabricker
Moody spring table. For when you need a break from pastels.
Even though I had to sacrifice two boxes of unused tissues to my productivity (#toddlerlife), I’m still calling today a win for this mom-work balance thing. Now if the Hoos would just bring home the win on Saturday, my week will be made! Photo by @ashleyrelvasphoto
I see it. I like it. I want it. I got it. 🎶
This bouquet represents so much about what I love about flowers - this client had a black tie wedding and wanted a neutral palette. She’d seen lots of examples of white flowers (like lots of my clients!) and brought me images of them. But when we got to talking and I showed her the possibilities of bringing in a few warmer, muddier tones to give her flowers depth, she lit up! And then we threw in some fuzzy grasses to add texture and it was one of the most fun flowering days! Added their gallery on my site if you want to see more! Images by @elisabricker.
Bout portraits are some of my fave portraits. Also, finally updated my website with some new galleries! 🌿 Photo by @rachelmayphoto

It’s Friday; I’m in love! It may be dreary outside but we are gearing up for a joy-packed weekend celebrating our spunky, sweet James! The birthday girl is turning two and I’m trying my hand at a homemade lemon strawberry cake 🍋- wish me luck! Photo: @theomilophoto
This bouquet was very special for me to make - for Sam on her wedding day. Sam, who acted as my right hand girl during a really tough season in my business and who led the charge for me right after I had given birth to James and who hugged me, made sure I ate, told me I was doing things right when I doubted myself and laughed with me in the late late hours during breakdown. I get emotional thinking about it! Thank you to @ashley.p.cox for capturing this beautiful woman so well! 🌿

Happy Valentine’s Day! James loooves flowers and was super excited to hold this bouquet before we delivered it. 🌸 This year, almost all my bouquets were purchased by women for women! I love helping women encourage and love each other!
I only used three ingredients in Eva’s bridesmaid bouquets and it was kind of the best. Doing a very similar thing this week for Valentine’s Day! Thanks for all who bought bouquets! I’m sold out! Photo by @bettyclicker
Give me allllll the drama. 🌿 Photo by @ashleyrelvasphoto at @pippinhillfarm with beauty by @annabreeding and planning by @eventswithpanache as seen on @stylemepretty
I’ll be writing my February goals, eating snacks and waiting on the commercials tonight during the Super Bowl. You? I’ve started using #powersheets from @cultivatewhatmatters to track my goals and it completely revolutionized my January. Small steps adding up! 💪🏻 📷: @elisabricker
Those first blooms of spring make these frozen winter days all worth it.
