Becca Blue  For the love of flowers. Heart on my sleeve. (And possibly on a flower petal....) C H I C A G O

✨petal pusher ✨

Signs of spring.

Flower lovers, united.

Another light snow last night has me dreaming of all my seed packets, nestled sleepily in the basement- and the sweet promises they hold.

I have been having this reoccurring dream of me eating flowers. Consuming them. In the waking world, I haven’t touched a flower in weeks. What are my dreams telling me?

I would be lying if I said I was sad to see 2017 go. (Does anyone else out there feel this way?) At the same time, I don’t like saying something like that at all, because I have so very much to be grateful for. And there, I believe sums up this year for me: 2017, the year of the contradiction. I have been so angry these past 12 months- so desolate- and yet so full of happiness and hope. I have wanted to pull the covers over my head and stay cozy and buried and oblivious and yet have never felt quite so awake. I have felt *so* stuck, emotions like mud-caked feet, the up and down motion has been hard- never mind the forward (or lack of forward) movement...and then at times my heart has sprouted wings and we have flown. I feel like I have been on pause, and sometimes even on rewind- (Is this really where I am? We are? How? Why?!) and other times on fast forward, not able to hold on to the beautiful moments quite hard enough as they slide way too quickly through my fingers. (Where I found myself delightedly asking myself the exact same questions just on the other side of the spectrum- Is this really where I am? We are? How? Why?) This year I have been Alice falling through the (seemingly bottomless) Upside-Down, and yet, at times have felt buoyant. Contradictions. Comings and goings. (Goings and comings?) Endings and beginnings. Goodbye 2017. Hello 2018. (Out with the old, in with the new? 🤷‍♀️ I could not help myself.) 💙

Tiny details.

The power of the “send” button is a mighty thing. Can I tell you how many times I put off writing that email to Erin @floretflower & Team Floret? (My middle name is procrastination!) How many different versions I typed for the #floretworkshopscholarship essay? So. Many. Ever so many. I made up excuses. I typed, I deleted...I typed, I deleted more. But, finally- I took a deep breath and just typed- and didn’t proof read, (and possibly did not breathe) and made myself hit “send.” Woosh. It went. My life changed on that email. Having Erin tell me I was selected (back in 2014) is still something I pinch myself over. Nothing changes if you don’t hit “send.” Gamble on yourself. You are worth it. Apply for the #floretworkshopscholarship right now. (Seriously, do it now-applications are only being accepted through midnight. The link is in my bio.) The new online workshop is going to be AMAZING. ✨ Hit “send.” 💙
