What’s your typical day like?
Today we’re going to do a couple centerpieces for an event this afternoon, then we have some bridesmaid bouquets to do, since we have three weddings going on this weekend. We have some bride meetings to prep for as well. We do lots of wedding things: bouquets, boutonnieres, arbors, centerpieces, all those things.
During wedding season, on Saturdays my mom watches our 6-month old daughter Harper for me while my team meets at the shop anytime between 7:30 and 8:30 in the morning. We usually have groups of two people working together; we get them loaded up and they head off to weddings for setups. They come back anywhere around noon or 2 and we finish up.
Then I try to catch Greg and Harper or my mom at the farmers’ market. Saturdays are a little intense for us because Greg and I usually work, but on Sunday we walk downtown—we live five minutes away—and go to BernBaum’s for brunch. I get their egg bake, and they have an orange roll that’s really good. We’ll grab a coffee, stroll down to Island Park, and have a slow morning and just hang out and catch up and try to spend some time together as a family.
