I just wanted to sit down, take some breaths and take a look back on all that has happened and been accomplished in the last months of 2017. It's so easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of life, that I sometimes forget to take a moment to process all the big and small things I've accomplished and beautiful moments that have happened in my life.
In September 2017, I made the very hard decision to close up my cutey mccute cute Plant Shed in San Francisco, CA and re-locate back to my home town of San Diego, CA. I couldn't deny my cravings for consistent warm and sunny days and "affordable" housing any longer.
After being in San Francisco and the Bay Area for 14 years, I've met some of the raddest, quirkiest, artistic, and most awesomest peeps ever in the universe! These people will forever be my family and I cherish every single one deeply. I will continue to consider SF my second home away from home.
Wanna take a quick scroll with me to see what went down in the last few mo's? C'mon, let's go!
So much love went into making this tiny shop a reality for me! I am forever grateful to my home slices that all had a hand in approving it and building it! You know who you are ;)
Watching that space come to life on account of my own vision and punching my fears in the face, is an indescribable feeling of joy, proudness, and "holy crap, I did that?!"
I miss the lil' hummingbird buddies that started showing up after I planted some of their favorite flower food, Salvias! I wonder if they miss me too?
Walking into the Plant Shed was a breath of fresh air! It was such a fun challenge to get to merchandise in a 8'x10' space. Goes to show that with a little creativity and ingenuity anything is possible!
A HUGE thank you to all my "regulars" and customers that came in to support my tiny Plant Shed! You are missed!
Throw in the unpacking into a new home, the holidays and getting The Potted Poppy up and running, I gotta stop and say "WHOA DUDE, you're kicking ass, don't trip!"
2018, for me, is all about recognizing and utilizing my strengths, being kinder to myself, and giving back to my communities and doing my part to care for our Mother Earth.
I wish you all a prosperous and happy New Year full of love and laughter!
What's 2018 all about for you?
