Weddings and other celebrations - I have done flowers for 2 weddings, a 100th birthday & a post-wedding celebration. I have also did flowers on a regular basis for Calla Lily Crepes in Nevada City, CA during late 2015/2016. I also did flowers in a private home for a number of occasions including two dinner parties. So much fun!
As I have been building this business, I have needed other ways of busying myself and earning a living. I taught at Yuba River Charter School (YRCS) for the 2015-16 school year as the assistant to the Homeschool Farm Program run by Raelynn Noel. It was a delight and working with children has been as much of a theme of my life as flowers have been. Just after the school year, my fiancé and I discovered that I was pregnant! Wow, exciting! We decided to up our wedding date to January 1, 2017 as our daughter was due in February. She decided to shake things up a bit by coming to us post-term 42 1/2 weeks in the oven, but well worth the wait! Amara Sweet Engstrom, born March 7, 2017 at 22.5 inches long & 9 lbs. 15 oz. Yes, that's right folks, nearly 10 lbs.! Pretty impressive stats. As I write this, she is just past 4.5 months and nearly sitting up, very good at rolling over both ways, crawling (sort of) backwards, squealing and babbling at full volume, grabbing toys, hair, clothing, basically anything within reach.
Now, I wonder when I will next get a chance to dance with some flowers?
