Ya’ll are so freaking amazing! I have been stressing about the changes that I’m making in my life and business. You guys came through with all sorts of encouragement and love. Thanks so much. Photo by @maryclaire_photography
Long before I even dreamed about doing flowers, I dreamed of being a nurse. In High School I volunteered at our local ER, and loved it. I knew it was what I wanted to do, but I let low confidence convince me that I wasn’t smart enough to do those hard science classes. Then I fell in love, got married, and quickly found myself pregnant. I felt guided to be at home with my babies. And then flowers came into my life, and I was able to marry two passions. I’ve always kept nursing in the back of my mind, but never felt right about it. Recently school entered into my mind. Just as I felt extremely guided in motherhood and flowers, I’ve felt the same with nursing. I am now on the list to go to a Maricopa Nursing School in the next year. I am starting a new chapter. Flowers will always be a part of my life. I freelance for amazing designers, and will always do that. But it’s time for me to stop doing events on my own. At first the thought was so sad, but the more I have turned to Lord, the more right I feel about this path. I can’t wait to share more about everything! Photo @maryclaire_photography
Life is so crazy. Almost 5 years ago I was going for an evening run and ideas and inspiration for starting a floral design business flooded my mind. I had some serious dreams, but nothing could prepare me for what Posies would become. Posies has been life changing for me. It’s pushed me, it has made me cry, sweat, and bleed. I truly feel that the Lord guided me to this beautiful journey that has given me friends and lifelong lessons. I have learned so much about myself, and about flowers. I remember when I first started out I didn’t know the names of any flowers, and now I feel like all I do is point out different kinds of flora to my kids. I pull over and pick flowers and make@my kids smell them and enjoy their beauty. My son gave me a Mother’s Day questionnaire today from preschool that said “my mom loves? Flowers and planting gardens”! My heart burst into so much love. That my boy know how much I love flowers and growing a garden means that I must be doing something right. And I do! I love flowers so much. I love their smell, beauty, and uniqueness. Each and every one is a reminder that God is good, and wants us to be happy. Photo by @maryclaire_photography

I am surrounded by amazing woman. On Tuesday morning I called my wonderful friend and lovely assistant @historyfordinner to tell her I had some left over flowers from an event that she might want. She said that she had a vision for her oldest daughters senior pictures. One thing led to another and pretty soon we had @saije.wright styling, @tiffanyhaynesphoto photographing, @theseasonsofmylife doing make up, and Dawnel and I setting up flowers in my garage. It was a perfect day full of creativity, babies everywhere, and lots of laughter. My motto is and will always be “it’s not what you know, but WHO you know”. I love that I have so many wonderful woman that I can be creative with, and also be uplifted and left feeling rejuvenated!
WOW! Working with @maryclaire_photography is ALWAYS a good idea. She took her brother and his girlfriend out and created this sunny goodness. I’m in love!
