We’re gearing up for Mother’s Day at the flower shop — it’s next Sunday, put it in your calendar! — so this week has been all about planning our design schedule, cleaning and organizing the shop, and starting the prep work for our biggest sales week of the year. I stocked the shop with lots of adorable containers for fresh bouquets and succulent gardens (I want to keep ’em all) and this holiday collection is my favorite yet, so we’re ready to tackle the week and help celebrate lots of sweet mamas in our community.
It’s the craziest week, but it’s also my favorite: the shop is filled with spring blooms, there are lots of people in and out of the shop, and moms are always so kind and grateful when we show up at their doorsteps with fresh bouquets. If you’re ever having a rough day, let me put you in our delivery van and send you around town to hand-deliver flowers; it’s an instant spirit-lifter.
I’ll spend this weekend at the shop, getting a jump start on our orders for the first part of the week so we’re ahead of the game when the rush starts. I welcome any and all audiobook/podcast recommendations, because I’ll need something to keep me company while I work.
(I’m currently loving the podcast Bitch Sesh; I binged all the archives and snort-laughed the whole way through over the last several weeks. If you’re a fellow Bravo/Real Housewives fan, get in on this action!)
