A typical day in my life includes…

coffee, running the shop, making people happy with flowers, snuggling my doggos, and enjoying the evening with my hubs 🙂

I was born…

in Washington State.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the weather and how beautiful it is!

I’m listening to…

classic rock…always!

My family…

is the best! Kids are grown and are great people. Life is good!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

John Lennon.

One thing I cannot live without…

too many things…my hubs, my kiddos, my doggos, sunshine, rain, flowers!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a doctor LOL – after a couple of years of pre-med I realized I am far too creative to be honed in by the medical field and science (though it still interests me). I need beauty and creativity in my life EVERY DAY!

I’m inspired by…

nature, kindness, generosity and love.

The one person who motivates me is…

Maya Angelou.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

that racism, sexism, prejudice and intolerance of any kind would disappear forever!

The perfect day would be…

waking up without an alarm clock and puttering around doing whatever I want, whenever I want.

My first job was…

at KFC when I was 14.5 years old in Washington.

My favorite escape…

is traveling! I just returned from Costa Rica…can’t wait to go back!

My life…

is amazing, I love it! Attitude is everything.

I’m currently working on…

building my brand via SEO, Google Listing, Yelp, and improving my website so that we continue to provide unique and beautiful flowers, plants and gift items for our amazing customers.

Always…

look for the positive in every situation. Find something to appreciate. You can only think about one thing at a time so make it a good one!

Never…

give up. Nothing ever stands still or stays the same…no matter what is happening, this too shall pass.

Favorite Quote…

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon

Biggest Dream…

is to win the lottery LOL!

My Pet Peeve(s)…

are negative, rude people.
