A couple weeks ago when I was doing a little updating and formatting on my blog I realized that my next blog post would be my 100th! I decided it was cause for celebration. So I began to think a little bit about doing a really fun blog post and a giveaway. Then this happened....
If you read my July Monthly Moos post here, or if you follow the blog that my daughter and I write here, then you know that she and I started a little business of selling our heirloom flower bouquets. It started out very simple and the first couple weeks were just easy with bouquets selling slowly and consistently.
And then overnight it exploded. And we got so busy we didn't know which way was up. So, my special 100th blog post didn't get written!
These precious little grand-girls of mine are amazing. They keep themselves very entertained while we work madly and crazily whipping out bouquets before our customers beat us to the flower trailer!
We are having the time of our lives. Laughing, picking flowers, washing jars, making labels, getting the flowers to the flower trailer and set up as fast as we can, and then walking (well, running) away and letting our customers take their time choosing flowers and putting their money in the drop box. (The reason we run is because we are sweaty, dirty, and exhausted!) We love the honor system, love the customers we've met, love the smiles on the faces of the children that buy flowers for friends (and glad for Facebook so their Mommies can tag us in the pictures they take!).
And we love our flowers. I ran down to the flower garden in the rain last weekend and picked flowers to make the above bouquet for a friend who was celebrating her 90th birthday. I felt like this bouquet was so full of love. It was such a fun gift to be able to give.
So.... I know you are waiting for the giveaway! Please leave a comment about your favorite flower to put in an arrangement and next Saturday a random winner will be chosen to receive three packages of my favorite heirloom seeds from Baker Creek Seeds. (Since I can't send you one of my bouquets, this is the next best thing!)
And a very big thank you to my faithful blog readers, some of whom have been with me through every one of my one hundred blog posts!
