Almost one month ago I started teaching again. After years of being a public school teacher, a homeschool mom and high school coach it was time to teach something new. I hosted my first Wreath Workshop in a beautiful studio in Tacoma @courthousesquaretacoma One of the joys of being a teacher is seeing your students excel way beyond what you could imagine! Wow! They did a beautiful job!! Thanks @mochiesnyder for the inspiration and space and @l_gelman, @kristinmthorp and @gretchengelman for all of your love and support! Here’s to 2018 and new teaching opportunities ahead!!

I’m posting this lovely picture today, as part of a #sinclairandmoorescholarship application to one of their amazing floral workshops offered this spring.

I have been blessed with the role of being a mother for the past 27 years and as my youngest of three daughters was getting ready to graduate from college this past June I knew it would it was time for me to begin praying and dreaming about what was next for me.
If I am being honest, I did not know where to start…. Who am I now that all my children have embarked on journeys of their own? What AM I passionate about? What are MY dreams?

As I look back I see that I’ve had different dreams for different seasons of my life.
As a young adult I would dream about my future career and future husband.
As a young college graduate, teaching, getting married and having a family was my dream.
Being newly married I dreamed of starting my own creative business. Unfortunately, that never became a reality.
Then as a young mom my children's dreams became my dream. I wanted to soak up every moment of those dreams with them.
So in this new season, I’m dreaming of starting my own business doing floral design! This summer I was blessed with the opportunity to do a few weddings and help with some special events. There I learned some new skills and met some wonderful floral designers and creatives!! What an awesome community!! I also learned more about myself and what makes me flourish! No matter where I end up, community, creativity, and an opportunity to love and serve people will be part of my new dream!

Thank you Steve and Jamie for being a great example of dreaming big and wanting to give back and come alongside us!! Thanks also for sharing your gifts and talents! You two are such a blessing to us all!!

With the empty nest around the corner and my baby graduating from college, I began praying about what my next step in life would look like! I have been creative my entire life and my dream has always been to start my own business.
I’ve worn many “hats” during my adult life, a few being-- public school teacher, homeschool mom, junior high/ high school cheer and tennis coach. My heart has always been to serve and love people, 110% of the time regardless of what season of life I have been in! With the crazy schedule of life during those years I had a tough time keeping up with all the fun, creative trends and felt like the creative world had passed me by!

So, for the past 6 months I’ve been diving back into that world to see where I fit! I began navigating a trail of clear circumstances that led me to a new passion for flowers and floral design! But the funny part of this is, it really isn’t new! I see pieces of this passion woven through my life all the way back to my childhood. What is even more perfect is that it combines my desire to create with my love of serving people!

Thank you so much Steve and Jamie for sharing your gifts, talents and resources and offering these scholarships!
