Planting Seeds

OK, so almost a year ago while at my mentor's wedding, I had an epiphany about something BIG missing from my life. Now don't get me wrong, I'm very content and grateful for everything. I have a loving husband who is literally my better half, a handsome and intelligent growing son, great relationships with my family and friends, a great paying job and most of I am a child of GOD and could want for nothing. But, as I was
attending this  wedding I was completely struck with the desire of being included in the planning process of the most important day of a person's life. Now I'm also keeping in mind I had this feeling a couple of years ago and decided that I wanted to become a wedding planner, but mid-way through planning my very first
wedding for a co-worker the engagement was called off. After that moment  felt discouraged and didn't attempt to nurture this business idea any further until last May.

So as I'm leaving this wedding, I have this grand idea of becoming a floral designer but I didn't know where to start because it's not like they have a curriculum at the local university for floral management. I knew this was going to be different and would require a lot of patience. So I second thought this a couple times to make sure it was something I was serious about and gave it over to GOD. I said to myself, "if it's meant to be then it will be." Since then I have planted my seeds which are becoming the foundation of my business and are watching them grow slowly but surely. I know one day my little seeds will grow into a lush, beautiful business of "Violet Gardens Floral Designs".

I want to send "shot outs" to my mentor(& 10th grade geometry teacher)  +Toya Jones-Frank for inadvertently helping to plant my seed and always supporting me. Below are some pics from her wedding.

I absolutely love this picture...It's so regal




Happy soon-to-be 1 year Anniversary  +Toya and Shawn!!!
