Off to a Flying Squirrel Start!

Off to a Flying Squirrel Start!

I have the BEST family, friends and supporters! After taking the leap into Red Squirrel, I have been met with nothing but kindness and genuine support. For that, thank you! 

When my first snapdragons burst from the soil, I posted them as my FIRST BOUQUET for sale. EEEK! I was so nervous. I knew these flowers were beautiful and all that went into growing them, but would others share my appreciation for them? I eventually clicked 'Post' and waited anxiously. 

Not long after, my friend Patti (who's husband built the raised beds for me) messaged me and said she wanted my flowers! I did a full on Footloose choreographed dance inside. For anyone who owns a small business or creates something, you know that feeling. 

Fast forward, I met up with Patti to deliver her flowers and we ended up sipping oat milk lattes and chatting about God and life for 2 hours. It was such an affirmation that I am exactly where I'm supposed to be right now. 

Since then I have been able to deliver flowers for birthdays, cheer ups and just for something pretty to look at. Each time I walk out and harvest blooms or put a bouquet together or see a comment on my Instagram, I know this is my path. <3 

If you are embarking on something new, don't wait around. You don't need to be ready. Do it scared. Start from square one. You won't be disappointed in small steps forward because you're simply FINALLY moving forward in the direction you want to go! 

Happy dreaming, happy planting and happy making your fist sale wherever you are and whatever you do! :D
