We traded our prairie sunsets for an amazing view and unsurpassed PEACE. It was a wild ride to get here (hello 2021 real estate market - that was a doozy!) but it was definitely worth the literal sweat, blood and tears that it took to get us here.
So, what does our move mean for the flower farm you ask? Well, to be totally honest I'm still not sure. We're now about 20 minutes south of Coeur d'Alene in the Sun Up Bay area. We absolutely LOVE it but it does mean a bit more a drive for things like deliveries or workshops. It also means I have an opportunity to reevaluate the things in the flower biz that I love and things that I need to let go of. For my sanity, and for my family. ;)
Some things that are happening for sure, I'm still planting lots of flowers for 2021. And I'm still going to design for special occasions and have pop up sales on my website (Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day etc) and I REALLY want host workshops out here because it is just SO DANG PRETTY. I promise it will be worth the drive! Our views are amazing, the gardens will be terraced and surrounded by the North Idaho wilderness with the southern sun to warm your face. The previous owners were meticulous gardeners and we inherited an incredible amount of amazing plants along with an orchard and a beautiful berry patch. It's a really special place. The photo above was taken from our back porch just a few weeks ago.
So, please bear with me while I work out the details of balancing the farm, my career and my family. I love flowering for you all, it is my passion. I just need to find a way for a one woman show to work well for the little people who call me mom and the husband who'd like to have a date that doesn't involve work every now and then, while balancing the other good things in my life. I'll get there! In the meantime, I'll be flowering over the winter via pop ups here and there but won't be taking delivery orders at this time.
As you've probably gathered, I'm really lousy at keeping my blog updated so please make sure to follow along on Instagram for updates, or sign up for email alerts. Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
