sunday evening playing catch up on design work at the shop. i look over and this little guy is keeping me company on the window screen! maybe the praying mantis is my spirit animal, i sure do run into them alot... i'm not too sure what that means for tomas, poor guy.

through the ups and downs of having your own business, it's really great work to get to share the process with your sister.

i started everything gardens 3 years ago this may. it wasn't long before i talked steph into moving from pittsburgh to help me on this adventure. we've learned so much, grown so much. sorry for the sappy post, but i'm feeling very appreciative of her today... especially so when everyone coming into the shop is oohing and ahhing over her gorgeous floral arrangements. so, thank you stephanie for being my creative and kick-ass partner.

also, if you missed it yesterday, we contributed some of our tips for running a family business on design sponge.

this week we spent some time planning our interior shop remodel... picking out new paint colors, looking at shelving and furniture. we can't wait to get started. we're going to have a big summer party when we're all done, so stay tuned.

we have a great flower stock for the weekend including some knockout peonies and our heirloom tomato plants are on sale. come in and see us!

by the way, if you love baking, check out this site, YUM!
