So stoked with how this sugar flower cake turned out!! It has all my favorites like peonies, ranunculus, poppies, kumquats, and a pop of blue delphinium! Carolyn with @mayflowersutah did the fresh florals for the wedding and I made my sugar flowers to match hers! Teamwork makes the dream work people! Photo by the incredible @mikkiplatt
Cake and sugar flowers. What else is there??
I felt so productive this morning then the afternoon hit me like a ton of bricks. This wedding season is already kicking my butt! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ photo @rachelreyesphoto styling @wheatandweather
Magnolia blossoms are one of my top 5 favorite flowers. I know where all the trees are in my town and I drive past with stars in my eyes. I wish magnolia season lasted more than 10 days here in Utah. They fade so quickly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With sugar flowers though, there are no limitations. The flowers you want are out of season?? No problem! I got you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ photo @kristinacurtisphotography
I know I'm not alone when I say that it's hard to find the balance between work life and real life. I feel like I'm always playing catch-up. I get the emails in my inbox down from 18 unread emails to 0 after 4 hours of answering and then 10 minutes later I have 5 again. I can never keep up. And then there's the reality that I think about work ALL THE TIME like it's the only thing in my life. But it's not and it really shouldn't be! I have a family and a husband who I rarely get to hang out with who I love more than anything. This job takes up a lot of time. All of my time. But I love this job. I'm working on finding a balance. I'm a little slower with emails than normal because I'm trying to be present. The most important things are your family and the relationships you build with people. My grandpa passed away a couple weeks ago and it made me realize that what they say about life being short is so true. He worked so hard, but he knew how to play even harder. He really lived. Reflecting back on his life made me realize that I'm doing this whole thing wrong. I work hard but don't get to play hard very often and I need to change. I want to play hard too. It's about finding the balance. I'm working on finding the balance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ photo @alixann_loosle_photography
