The Circle Game...

 When my best friends Courtney and Rob got married, 
Court's dad gave a toast and referenced Joni Mitchell's, The Circle Game.
After that night, Joni and I have become good friends and now as a mother, that particular song has even greater resonance within me.  
I still can't listen to it without crying, but then again, 
there are many songs that have that affect on me.

The idea of seasons turning to years and the ever revolving circle of life.
So much has happened over the last year since Beatrice Ann came into the world.
How can she be turning 1 on the 12th of October?
My hopes for this girl are for her to live a happy, joyful and beautiful life.
For her to be compassionate, loving and accepting.
To be positive and gracious.
To be true to herself.
To celebrate each season.
I love you baby girl.
Drink in everyday.

Michelle and Ryan

I so enjoyed getting to work with Michelle and her family.
Thoughtful and lovely details.
Michelle's mom knit the beautiful chuppah, we used tons of eclectic tea pots, stacks of vintage books and she might have had the best cake I've ever seen!!!

The gardens at the reception site were incredible.  
If you haven't been to the Philbrook in the spring, check it out next year!

Congrats to the sweet couple.
The fantastic Candi Coffman did and awesome job capturing so many sweet and special moments.

Scent of a woman...

One of my favorite scent memories is when my mom and dad would be going out for "date night" and mom would come and tuck me in. She has worn Clinique's Aromatics Elixir for as long as I can remember and I loved the way she smelled when she leaned over my bed and kissed me goodnight. 

 The other distinct smell that I recall is on non "date nights" she smelled clean and fresh with her Oil of Olay lotion. It's probably the reason I started using Oil of Olay, or should I say, Olay facial lotion. I love the way that pink lotion smells.  I bet Bea is already identifying me with that scent.

Happy Mother's Day to Ann Mann.
I love you so much and am so thankful to be celebrating Mother's Day with you!

Beatrice Ann, thanks for making me a momma!

Wedding season is turning into a year round event for us.
While we are currently surrounded by all the fun color that spring nuptials bring,
here are some photos from Shannon and David's January wedding.
Loved her simple grey, white black and pale pink palette.
Photo's taken by the lovely Sarah Denbow of Holli B Photography.
I always adore getting to work with Sarah 
and it was a joy to work with my buddy, Dana Scott of Archive Events.

Help...It's something that in the past, I haven't been good at asking for.

I have it all under control.
I can handle it.
I am superwoman.

I am an idiot for ever thinking this way.

I need help.
Help raising my child.
Help running my business.
Help keeping my heart and mind focused on whats truly important.

Child rearing...
I'm so thankful to have help.
I am blessed with a wonderful husband, who takes good care of me and Beazer.
Fortunate to have amazing family that let Tyler and I have date nights.
We thank God everyday for the amazing woman that takes care of Bea while I'm at work.
Sara Miller, you rock!

Shop Keeping...
I don't know what I would do without our amazing staff at the shop.
At first, it was scary to hire employees, now I have no idea how we operated without them.
Hailey, Hunter and Wills, thank you for taking care of our customers and being truly interested in and inspired by plants and flowers. All three of you have wonderful natural ability. Thank you for taking care of my other "baby" while I'm hanging out with my real baby!

Grateful for times of reflection and evaluation and learning about what really matters...
Moments with my family. Bea's laughter and her sparkling eyes. Tyler's delight in sharing music with us. Walks in the evening with my best friend and first born. Face time with my mom and dad. Little things that are SO big.

Friendship and sisterhood. Feeling so close and connected to my dear friends. Whether it's encouraging each other in the challenges of motherhood or talking about dreams of what's to come, I have never felt so lucky to have the friends I have.

Finding fulfillment in my days work. I am very lucky to own my own business, work for myself and be in a creative field. As we move into the busy season of weddings, I hope to be conscious and mindful of these blessings and be a good leader. I'd like to give each bride the flowers they have dreamed about and provide a positive work environment.

Sometimes I don't have it all under control.
Sometimes I can't handle it.
Most of the time I am NOT super woman.

That's okay. Tomorrow is a new day. I can ask for help.

She's so sweet and funny and her personality is really beginning to shine!
This time last year, Tyler and I were in New York for market when we found out Bea was on her way!

Brides of Oklahoma Tablescape Shoot...

Birdie was thrilled to work with the super inspiring, Kimberlyn Hall of Blueberry Hill Events.
I had so much fun designing the flowers for this shoot.
The talented, Mr. Aaron Snow did the photography and Glorious Day Films made this AWESOME behind the scenes video of the shoot.
The shoot took place back in August, the temperature reached 100+ degrees and I was 8.5 months pregnant. It was worth it!
For a full list of vendors that worked on this project, check out the Brides of Oklahoma blog.
