Summer in Seattle, Vancouver + Beyond!

Inspiration // The Nouveau Romantics

We’re heading north to Vancouver! Or at least this lady is – for the month of August. My dearest ML suggested that I go visit family and friends in August to escape the Texas heat and I suddenly found myself daydreaming of all the cabins of my childhood, and beyond.

To help offset travel costs, and because I love the challenge of travelling floristry, I put out a call for weddings in the Seattle / Vancouver / B.C area, waiving travel fees, and suddenly I have one, and possibly two booked! Anyone need a florist or event designer in a rather short time frame? I’m your gal! It looks like it might be from July 29th through end of August.

Know anyone? Pass this along! It’ll be fun to actually whip up some flowers outside and not worry about them instantly wilting in the Texas heat …. not to mention DAHLIAS!

I’m jazzed to re-visit all of my favourite places: Granville Island, the mountain hikes, seawall runs, sushisushisushi, Hornby Island, and all those family and friends I haven’t seen in, oh, five years? ‘Tis overdue, y’all. Very overdue!
