its nice to be appreciated

Whenever I get an order for some save the dates, I always get little butterflies because: 1. It means I have to do my best work 50+ times in a row, and 2. It means I get to be a little part in someone’s wedding. Always with great privilege, comes great responsibility.

But when I get little notes from happy customers, it makes all my hard work feel so appreciated. Here are a couple sweet notes I have received in the past couple months:

  • Oh my goodness they arrived today and they are absolutely to die for!! I know we are going to get a ton of compliments on these babies!! Thank you so much for all your hard work, I will be recommending you to all my friends in the future.
  • We have gotten a TON of compliments and we can´t thank you enough for the wonderful work you did! We kept one for ourselves to frame and keep forever!
  • I just got home from work and was so excited to see that my order arrived! I opened the box it to discover the most beautiful save-the date cards I have even seen in my life!!! Each one is a precious work of art. I can’t stop staring at them and am so excited to get them out to our guests.

Hope that makes you remember there are people in the world who appreciate your hard work, and your time means something more to them!

Hope you have a nice weekend! The sun came out here!

purple blooms

After a hot couple months, the flowers in our yard are coming to life again. And they definitely have a purple trend going.

Our neighbor was adamant that we wouldn’t be able to grow lavender, since she had no luck after several tries. We planted it anyway, and would you look at that.

These asters have been waiting patiently all summer for their time, and we were super surprised at how enthusiastically they bloomed. They literally stop traffic.

A relatively new addition to the yard, but jumped right onto the purple bandwagon.

This was an experimental planting, in a very shady area. Do you have those areas in your yard where you aren’t quite sure what will want to grow there? It seems to be working hard to survive. Bloom where you are planted, right?
