a journey to flower love

I can’t believe I once told my husband never to buy me flowers (on Valentine’s Day) because they were a waste of money.

To be fair—NYC prices of foreign blooms on an overpriced holiday are kinda ridiculous but… I was young. I didn’t understand the simple joy a perfect bloom can bring.

I once had a friend who shared the best compliments. Often out of the blue, always heartfelt, easy to miss if you were distracted. Sharing flowers gives me the same feeling those compliments used to give me.

It’s easy to gloss over, but if you pay attention, there’s a whole world of calm joy and simple pleasures, a contentment you can only enjoy when you take time to notice.

That friend is gone now. I like to think she left a little of her spark in me and that little spark grew into an idea to spread beauty from and wide.

So here we are: Avalon Lush, my gift to the world and my family. It is a commitment to enjoying God’s beauty, a way to enjoy more and live in the lushness of our world, and a path to experiment and get dirty along the way.
