I’ve always been so proud to be a part of such a fantastic family. I could not have asked for better brothers to grow up with or better parents to help me become the person I am. I feel extra blessed to be able to work with my family every day and especially now that my niece and nephew have joined the business.

SAY WHAT ?????????

As someone who is never at a loss for words (at least thats what I’m told) I find it strange when I ask a client what sentiment they would like on the card that will accompany their flowers being delivered, they reply “I don’t know what to say” or even stranger, “you write the card for me” !!! I have to admit I often think I can have a ton of fun writing a message to someone I don’t know but in reality I’ve never done it. That being said, Valentines is right around the corner and to help those of you who don’t know what to say here’s a list to choose from. (You’re welcome)

I remember years ago when I first decided to join our family business my dad saying to me “you’ll never be a millionaire but you’ll love what you do and you’ll meet the nicest people” ! George, my dad was a wise wise man. Sorry to say I am not a millionaire but happy to say he was right about loving what I do and meeting the nicest people.

Who Doesn't Like to Score?

Recently I’ve had a ton of friends and clients tell me how lucky I am to be working with flowers. While I know this is true, sometimes we lose sight of just how wonderful this industry is. I remember my Dad always telling me “you’ll meet the nicest people and love what you do everyday, florists are just nice people”! Some of my greatest friends are ones I’ve met thorough our business.
