Like a lot of people (I was incredibly surprised that many others feel like this..), I'm currently at that 'OHGAWD, where do I go with my life from here' stage. My papa always told me to try something, and if I didn't like it, try something else. That's pretty much been my motto in life - with jobs piling up on my CV and a variety of experiences and skills under my waisted belt, however I hadn't quite found that one thing. That one thing that you crave to be doing day and night, feeling creative towards it and wishing for that one thing to never end. Until I booked onto a floristry workshop at the beginning of October with my chum Claire. And since then, I cannot explain just how incredible that afternoon was. And so utterly inspiring.
After nearly four hours of arranging, plenty of sweet tea and lots of laughter and chatting, our centrepieces were complete and we honestly couldn't have been happier. From such a calming course with a lovely atmosphere, we literally beamed from ear to ear. Whilst we added finishing touches and tidied up after ourselves, Susan was busy in her kitchen creating a spectacular afternoon tea - think the biggest cream cakes and tasty homemade brownie you have ever seen! And although we most definitely outstayed our welcome (we couldn't help it, we were having the best time!), Susan was the perfect host and has definitely left a huge impact on how both myself and Claire feel about the future.
Who knew that booking a florist course would have us rethinking huge life changes?
