For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a creative. My earliest memories include spending lots of time in my cozy closet hideout, putting together puzzles and writing story after story with ALL the colorful illustrations. What I would do to go back in time and be a fly on the wall! I’m sure that I’d find myself talking aloud quite enthusiastically, overflowing with excitement about whatever it was I was doing!
As time passed, I had to search for new creative outlets somehow, some way. I ended up becoming an elementary school teacher where, my goodness, being creative was part of the job—and I truly loved every minute of the years I spent in the classroom. My journey then led me to motherhood, my proudest job.💗 The last ten years I’ve been devoted to making every moment be as memorable and special as can be so that my children grow up knowing that the best things in life aren’t things. There are so many small joys in the everyday, from books, to dancing, and just snuggling together saying absolutely nothing at all.
That leads me to one of my favorite simple joys: flowers! I started pouring all of my creative energy into this new adventure in May of 2020, after spending two long months inside the four walls of my home and seeing those gray Pittsburgh skies day after day. I can remember thinking, “Gosh, what I would do for some fresh flowers to brighten this place up!” But I wasn’t going anywhere, groceries were being delivered, and there was nowhere for me to buy flowers. That is when I discovered flower trucks popping up across the country, and my dream for an easily accessible, one stop shop for joy became a reality with Blooms. My goal is to make flowers available to everyone by popping up all over Pittsburgh and bringing joy and delight to all! Flowers are one of those simple pleasures that can brighten up anyone's spirit. They are a gift to give or adore yourself. I hope my pop-ups will bring small joys to you!
