Taking Time To Refuel Our Creativity

Can you relate? My flower journey started in the garden, progressed into a floral design studio setting and eventually led to this amazing blogging world. I’ve loved every part of the journey, but it seems the deeper I get into the “flower business” I love, the farther I get from the actual flowers! It’s a weird irony. When I made the move from growing flowers to designing weddings and event, I found I rarely had time to spend in the garden. Between consultations, proposals, ordering, and managing the studio, I found it difficult to even get outside much or look for inspiration to refuel my creativity.

Lately, I’ve again realized the deep longing I have to be outside in nature. While I relish the incredible blessing I have of looking at hundreds of the most beautiful flower images imaginable each week (thank you for that!), I still need to feel the sunshine on my neck and breathe some fresh air. I need to see and take time to appreciate the tiniest part’s of creation. The unarranged parts. The naturally flawed, yet magnificent parts. I need to hear silence and escape the perfectly curated social media feeds. The wonder of nature. It brings me back to my first love. Reminds me of who I really am. Restores humility.
