I’ve really missed the blog, but I’m so grateful to Anne, Meghan, Kayley, Jessica and Jamie for stepping up to help cover for me while I soldiered through my first official Mother’s Day in the captain’s seat at the shop. Did you love them? I knew you would.
Things went really amazingly well last week, but we we were some kind of busy. The days were long and action-packed, and I missed more meals over five days than I think I’ve missed in the last five years. The good news — I just may be able to fit back into those skinny jeans from high school.
A few stand-out highlights from the week:
Calling a customer to tell him his check was damaged after Doak rifled through my purse on the floor in the wee hours of Thursday morning and destroyed my bank deposit envelope. Thank heavens that nice man had a good sense of humor.
Making the last delivery of the day late Friday evening, and getting a hug and kiss on the cheek from the lady who received the flowers. I don’t get to deliver often, but when I do, it’s my favorite part of my job.
Waking up the middle of the night at least three times and sleepy-drunk dialing my flower suppliers to place last-minute orders for flowers, vases, baskets, and supplies. I’m convinced they all think I’m an insomniac, a lush, or both.
Going through over 600 roses, 100 tulips, 700 carnations, and about 1000 stems of daisies (in addition to hundreds of other flowers) in just six days.
Thanks for hanging around while I was away! I hope to be back in full force this week with new outfit posts, some fun DIYs, and a new blog shop.
Stay tuned :-)
