We’re doing some reorganizing at the flower shop, so for the last several days I’ve been on the road delivering orders. It’s always fun — and eye-opening! — to get out on the street and experience peoples’ reactions to your product. Especially when they have no clue that you’re the owner and designer. On Monday morning I dropped a cute bouquet designed in a lime-filled vase to the hospital, and as the two front desk volunteers busied themselves with tracking down the recipient and signing me into the delivery log, they asked where I worked.
“Lasater,” I replied.
“Oh, I love Lasater,” one volunteer said to the other. “She always does the most beautiful arrangements!”
And my heart melted into a puddle right there.
