Carpe diem! I've begun to live that dream!
With the help of one local cafe owner and one Oakland-based flower farmer, I have a weekly presence on the busy street corner of San Pablo and Alcatraz. On Saturday evenings I pick up my Bluma Farm flower order and bring them home to make bouquets for the Sunday morning brunch crowd. This bouquet making often comes after a long day of dance rehearsal, so a green tea and/or upbeat playlist helps get me through it.
Week One was too windy to work in the backyard, so I set up shop indoors. (Many thanks to my ever tolerant and supportive husband for letting me make my messes.)
Happy Autumn, everyone.
