• Such an amazing pre-edit preview from @greenhouse_creative of the editorial fun we created yesterday with @stacie.stine and Brett.

Side note:  This is why photographers should be valued, this image is straight off her camera and is immeasurably better than anything I could have snapped.

Catch some of the BTS in my stories before they expire.

  • Yesterday was magic and adventure. I had the pleasure of partnering with Mikayla Dawn Photography and @judeandjael to set up a dream #engagementsession for our giveaway winners @morganlaneb and Brody.

Flowers. Water. Beauty of the creation. Joyful collaboration. All ingredients for a good day!

If you want a sneak peek of the adorable and sweet couple check out @mikayladawnphotography last post.

  • Congratulations Blaine and @henleygraves! What a laidback, fun couple. And, can we talk about these colors?!! 😍 (More previews in my stories.) #thepriceisright #lubbockweddingflorist #texaswedding #texasflorist #pursuepretty
  • I'm so loving this sneak peek from @emilykoontzphoto of the bouquet I posted last Saturday. That dress, That light. 😍

May is shaping up to be a stunning month with all the varieties of colors, styles, and celebrations I could hope for. Any guesses as to the color and  and style of this Saturday's wedding?

  • There's nothing quite like roses upon roses for a sense of #timelessromance. Yesterday's bouquet is reminding me that sometimes we try too hard.

In the flower/wedding world that can look like using the it flowers or colors, being blog worthy, immulating the coolest designers, having perfect instagram pics (this post is breaking the blurry rule), and on it goes.

In life it can be doing the current fad diet/lifestyle change/work out, having an on trend home or wardrobe, being in the "right" schools where the "good" families go, obtaining markers of success in your field, traveling to the cool destinations, being an entrepreneur ... regardless of how these things work for your life, whether or not they create contentment in your soul or reflect who you are designed to be.

Trends are trends because they resonate with the majority, and that's not bad. This bouquet features two very trendy roses. But, I added a couple roses from my yard even though they were too bright. There isn't a variety of flower types. The shape is more traditional, roundish. I just did what worked, for the parameters I was given, and the materials available.

This bouquet isn't "right" by a lot of current standards but oh, it's pretty. And, I got more story comments than normal after posting it.

Sometimes the magic happens in the faithful showing up, doing the work before us, with the materials we have, when we don't worry so much about fitting a mold, trend, or standard.

Where can you relax and just be you this week? Or what success have seemed to come almost accidentally from just being available and faithful in the moment?

  • This bouquet is headed to an engagement session this evening and the double tulips are matching my mood. This morning we were the recipients of a sweet chalking (see my stories), it's a beautiful spring day, and May is full of fun creative projects.

What have you been doing with this glorious weekend?

  • This perfectly pleasant spring day, the first  roses from my yard, imperfectly perfect antiques (like my new plates from @collectedlbk), and tile samples as my husband and I dream and scheme our next home improvement projects are just a few of the things that are inspiring me right now. How about you, what is inspiring you this weekend? I'd love to hear, or join the #weekendinspirationchallenge.
