Friday’s Five

Another Mother’s Day at the flower shop is in the books, y’all! This is the first weekend in several weeks that I don’t have to spend at work, so I have big plans: maybe do a little retail therapy; dive into my newest Book Of The Month pick, Since We Fell, by David Lehane; and get cozy with season four of Jane The Virgin on Netflix — if you’re not watching, get on board; Gina…

We designed three small weddings last weekend, worked on three more this…
