I think the Full Bouquet Blog just experienced the longest period of silence from me since the blogs creation. Please forgive the serious lack of posting but know that I was working on an incredible project. A project that required me to be gone from my studio for 6 days straight. I hope at some point I will be able to share with you the news of my latest adventure, until then, just know that I was seriously missing you.

The above picture was taken by photographer Anne Robert, and was part of a photo shoot that took place here in our garden. The entire shoot was a true beauty and it will be published soon in print. I am super excited about the release of this collaboration because the shoot is insanely beautiful.

In fact several of our weddings, including my sons wedding are up for submission so over the last few weeks I have been diligently submitting work, creating designs, working on holiday decor, reaching new goals, meeting with 2013 brides, designing for our final brides of 2012, preparing for a teaching opportunity in CA, planning our NYC conference for the Chapel Designers, teaching here and in Atlanta, and trying to decorate our own home for the holidays. Listing all of this makes me anxious and it makes me realize I have bitten off more than I should try and chew and yet I continue to chew. Everything that is happening here is kinda mind boggling but I just keep going, doing the best I can do, each and every day. Right now everyone needs a bit of me, and Santa most certainly needs me to get to work as well!! Insert a deep cleansing breath, thankfully I still remember how to do that!!

Good night and I wont be gone for long this time because I seriously miss you!!!
