New Adventures

Hey there lovelies! It has been quite a while since I've checked-in with you all and so much has gone on in my life in the last few months.

First, our son is starting his Senior year of High School and it is really blowing my mind. I'm so incredibly proud of him, but this is all going to be such a bitter sweet school year. I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that he may be going away to College (nowhere near me) and it's something that I'm truly grappling with. I had a mini break down a few weeks ago just thinking about it. If any of you have been through this recently and have some tips for a semi-normal transition please contact me. We will be empty nester's (insert Home Alone face slap) soon...I just can't! Lol!

Also, a little over a month ago, my business partner and I sold our art business A Toast 2 Artistry. As much as I loved being a part of the sisterhood that we built there, I was becoming flat out exhausted! The farmers' markets that my husband and I own and operate had started to grow in size and locations...from 2 markets to 4 in just over a year and now 2 more in the works! Yikes! Operations for both businesses were becoming quite overwhelming for me, especially with A Toast 2 Artistry being 30 miles away in Downtown Los Angeles. So, I had to make the decision to continue risking my health by pushing myself to the limit or letting something go. After several months of agonizing, feeling slightly off, and constantly complaining about something I had the ability to change, I chose to pray through my decision and I finally decided to move forward with Heritage Farmers Market.

And lastly, through all of the most recent events, I have found solace in flowers. I feel so grounded and at peace when I'm creating floral art. Picking up fresh cut stems and making arrangements has become something I look forward to each Sunday. I even started a hashtag on Instagram called "bedsidepretties" which is the name I've given the weekly arrangement I create for my nightstand. For me, there is just something joyous about waking up in the morning to a beautiful bouquet of flowers next to my bed. My husband has also noticed my recent fondness for flowers and unbeknownst to me, he went out and bought me the most adorable floral cutters, gloves, and matching flower tool bag.

My most recent Bedside Pretties. 

I've since purchased several books on flowers, taken some classes and have decided to launch a boutique style flower business at one of our farmer's markets. I'm happy to announce that Bohemian Blooms will be launching in the next few weeks! We will have a web presence and a pop-up shop where you can buy your blooms weekly. I'm sooooooooo excited!

I have a newsletter HERE if you want to stay up to date on when we BLOOM!

I'm really excited about the next chapter of my life and If all goes as I hope, it will be designed just the way I choose with lots of cozy moments, laughter, good wine, flowers, travel, community, and love.
