I’m a cover girl, ya’ll! 
Well, it’s just a local community magazine, but still ;-) It actually really freaked me out at first. When I came back to the shop after running some errands and saw a stack of these babies on my desk chair, I panicked and flipped them upside down so I didn’t have to look at them. For about twenty seconds, I got a little overwhelmed thinking about all of the people all over town that are going to see this thing. Then I realized, “hey, a lot of people all over town are going to see this thing, and then they’ll call my shop and order flowers!” Nothing banishes a little stage fright like the potential for profit. 
And if you’re wondering why I’m showing you my dirty nails {florists get dirty, don’t judge} it’s because I just got one of those new-fangled gel manis last night. Manicures are usually a fruitless task since I wreck the polish by digging in dirt and snagging my fingers across rose thorns all day, but when I stopped in for a pedi last night, the manicurist told me that this gel will stay on for 18 days. It’s about twice the cost of a regular manicure, but if it lasts that long, I think it’s worth every penny. It’s only day one, but I’m impressed so far!
