Or just come visit and get your nature fix this weekend πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸƒ So good for the soul πŸ’š

Trying hard to keep embracing the Spring rain. I look to nature and green growing things to keep my chin up! Reveling in the wonder of the seasons, the softness of the rain, and the glowing colors that are starting to appear everywhere I look. What's your strategy for surviving - and enjoying - a super wet Spring? Let me know if you need a wearable boa to keep you going πŸ˜„

My heart is right there with all my fellow small business owners and creatives - the highs and the lows and the struggles and the victories. I love sharing and collaborating on projects with my friends and seeing them succeed. And I am crushed when they experience unexpected challenges due to someone else's negligence. Right now, my friend Zoe of @birdsnbonesjewelry is experiencing one of those lows. If you love Zoe's work, or just want to support a rad small business in a time of need, click over to @birdsnbonesjewelry to find the @indiegogo campaign link and a little more of their story. Thank you so, so much! | πŸ“· @rebekahjule

It's been a while since I had one of these to post! Sometimes after winter I wonder if I'll remember how to make bouquets. But this one came together like a dream - lush, seasonal flowers are so happy together! Hannah asked for a spring explosion (with no pink) and thankfully spring pulled through and gave us both late winter flowers as well as a few spring lovelies! Congrats Jack + Hannah!! πŸ’šπŸ₯‚πŸŽ‰

πŸ’š Happy Earth Day, friends. Let's keep fighting for our beautiful pieces of heaven πŸ’š

Thank goodness Spring is here just in time for a gorgeous, sweet smelling wedding this weekend! Lilacs, daffodils, frittiliaria, hellebore... all the things that you can't get any other time of year that are just so unique and fresh and inspiring! I love the unique elements of Spring and Fall that just feel so right and perfect for the season. It's so good to embrace the season and let it shine. Colors and textures and even structural elements are so different from season to season. We are using my birch pole arch tomorrow, but very differently from this image: in the Fall there are masses of leaves, branches, and vines to cover arches with, but in early Spring, as leaves are just budding and beginning to open, that's a bit more of a challenge. We could have done some budding dogwood or cherry or something, but the bride is crafty and loves a hand-made feel so she is hanging paper garlands from the arch - cut from copies of their favorite books. How cute is that?! This shoot from last October really showcased so much of what I love about Fall flowers, and tomorrow we will be using masses of Spring glory and I'm so happy about it. It's good to work WITH nature and follow where she leads πŸ’š

How are you even real?! πŸ™€ I mean what is this gorgeousness?? Every year I forget how hard I crush on camellias.

Look at these giant beauties! Who else but floral designers get to work with such incredible materials? Nature's like go big or go home, guys. That's kind of my goal for the day, too. I'm ready for some Monday inspiration and to do lists! | πŸ“· @rebekahjule

Well, it's not the picture I had in mind for the family Easter photo, but that's how it goes, isn't it? I didn't iron my dress, didn't have time to take the photo at church by the pretty windows, and was generally a little disheveled. But as a friend said to me this morning, "we're all a bit of a mess today." But that's some of the beauty of Easter! Just come as you are and rest in grace. So here is our real life family photo - tired and lounging with family. I love these guys and feel so fortunate to live this life. Happy Easter! (Thanks for the photo, mom!)

One of my favorite days of the year. He is risen! | πŸ“· @rebekahjule

"He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Isaiah 53:31-5

Take a deep breath. Dig deep. Fight for your vision. It's worth it! Here's to small business owners and wedding industry workers and our generally crazy weekends. Happy whatever kind of Friday you're having! | πŸ“· @anikoproductions
