Change..nothing but a memory

"People are always telling you that change is a good thing. But all they're really saying is that something you didn't want to happen at all... has happened. My store is closing this week. I own a store, did I ever tell you that? It's a lovely store, and in a week it will be something really depressing, like a Baby Gap. Soon, it'll just be a memory. In fact, someone, some foolish person, will probably think it's a tribute to this city, the way it keeps changing on you, the way you can never count on it, or something. I know because that's the sort of thing I'm always saying. But the truth is... I'm heartbroken. I feel as if a part of me has died, and my mother has died all over again, and no one can ever make it right." - You've Got Mail

A year ago today these lines from one of my favorite movies popped into my head as we were packing, closing, and saying our good byes to our charming family business on little 15th & cherry st. It was a sad time for our family but also a happy time but as it says in the quote it was "change". My family owned a Wedding florist and event coordinating shop for a very long time. We were featured in several wedding magazines and wedding websites(such as: Ruffled Blog: Oklahoma Rustic Barn Wedding) It was our life and we rocked at it!! Haha
 It was and still is in my blood. I was born into it. And yes it was stressful and sometimes seemed like I had no life but eat, breathe, and sleep weddings but now that it is over and it's nothing more then a memory: i wake up some nights thinking about it and missing it.. I would not change my life for anything now and I'm sure my parents and sister would say the same(since they live on the beach) but you still think about it and miss it. So I'm sure from time and again I will post something to do with weddings and will give my advice on the matter. I never thought Flower Play would leave this big of a whole in my heart. I never truly understood what it meant to me till now. Here are a small few of the many weddings and events we did over the years that were some of my favorites.

Hope you have enjoy a peek of Flower Play Designs Work
