As I stood holding a fan to a car full of flower arrangements, trying to preserve their beauty, I wondered about the life of a flower. A cut stem only has a matter of time before it's purpose has been fulfilled and then, it will be tossed aside. What was the point? I thought. A painter's canvas can be preserved for ages, photograph's live on forever, a florist's work is so fragile and truly experienced so briefly. But alas', in that moment I realized that the life of a flower is really something quite poetic. It once had a life in the fields; it lives to grow and lives to die, not unlike we do. Making art with a cut stem is like an ode to the life of a flower.
I am an aspiring floral designer, who has fallen in love with patterns, textures, and all things paper. I live in Portland, OR with my husband.
My husband and I have our 4 year anniversary coming up! In honor of that and this crazy-fun thing called “tumblr,” we’ve decided to make a Q & A video. It’ll be a fun way for us to reflect on our marriage as well as interact with you guys. So, if you have any questions for us (or anything you’ve just been dying to know about this guy) feel free to submit your question! Send them in to either one of us. We’ll be picking ten questions on Monday! Looking forward to hearing from you!
Here is the hubby’s Post if you missed it. :)
