Sometimes the smallest things makes me feel like the actual adult my age says I am. I say the smallest thing, but I’ve made them monumental in my mind. So monumental that they are often debilitating, causing me to push the task to the back of my mind to avoid at all costs.

I’ve already told you that I’m the Queen of Procrastination. This shouldn’t be a surprise at all.

The other day my hairdresser, (shout out to Teri!) was taking time between her clients to cut the foils used to color hair. A normal task for her but as I verified I wasn’t getting my hair colored (cuz it wouldn’t surprise me that I forgot) she said that she was just prepping for a future client. And I thought…look at her…adulting!

When we are young we envision being an adult as being married, having a job, having kids, owning a home, etc. Those are the big parts of being an adult. What we don’t realize is that the small things are even more about becoming an adult. We make decisions, are responsible, take care of others, plan ahead, and basically decide to get out of bed every day.

So why am I talking about adulting on a blog about flowers and business? That would be because I finally adulted. One of those small tasks that turned monumental. I procrastinated so long that it became embarrassing and it the longer I went without doing this task the more embarrassed I became. This one task was holding me back from moving the business forward. It prevented me from taking it to the next level.

Last week I finally did what I needed to do and guess what? It was painless and not as embarrassing as I made it out to be. Adulting for the win!


On to more fun stuff. I will be holding my Mother’s Day Pop Up Shop this year. I will be open on Saturday, May 11 with flower arrangements, plants and gifts available for that special woman in your life. I’m still working all the details so I will do a longer post about it in the next few weeks. I hope you are all able to come see me on the 11th.

May your day be filled with flowers!

Welcome! Needing to find a new career path that was fulfilling and supported my creative side, I started Marmalade Sky Floral Design. My love for floral design started late in life and was quite by accident. Thinking a floral class would help with tablescapes that I love to create, I fell in love with the art and the people in the industry. I was taking interior design courses, but switched my focus after my first semester in the floral program. Now, I have started my own company, albeit part time, hoping to grow it into a full time career, all while working from my home. I have a deep love for my family & friends, tea parties, travel and of course flowers.
