Today we braved heat that felt like 40 plus degrees to share our farm for an afternoon with an incredible group of women. @minim_designs and I hosted a flower arranging workshop today at the farm. We've been planning these workshops since a coffee date in January, and when we pictured this September date we were thinking of crisp fall temperatures, foliages, all of the beautiful autumn moments. Instead we had scorching heat, like we haven't seen all summer. The amazing thing? It didn't much matter. We had such an INCREDIBLE time! We drank lots of water, ate pastries from @wheatandpoppy and talked about flowers, family and finding work/life balance. We walked the farm and then Kristina lead us in a design demonstration. I harvested in a fall palette as well as a summer one, and it was so much fun seeing the attendees chose their blooms.
What a total gift it is to be able to share our space with fellow flowers lovers. Honestly, I'm a behind the scenes person. The thought of hosting groups feels a bit daunting. And yet, every time I put myself out there I remember why it's important. There is such joy in sharing your space and your life with others who share your passion and excitement.
I'm grateful to each of you who have joined us at the farm this summer for workshops. Thank you so much for sharing this experience with us.
I'm hot, sweaty, and exhausted but I'm heart is full. What an amazing way to round out our flower season!
Biggest thanks ever to my farm manager Sherry @borntofarm_ for working so hard all weekend in this heat to make everything look as seamless as it did. I couldn't ask for better help. I am fortunate.
