If you had told me three months ago, or even two years ago that life didn't have to be so freakin' hard, I would not have believed you. I still keep pinching myself to make sure this isn't a dream inside a dream.
Far more often than not, life has been very hard for me. There has been far more lack than plenty.
This is what I grew up knowing. There was mostly enough, mostly when needed, but there was never plenty. There was never ease.
That being said, I grew up knowing how hard my parents worked for every thing we had.
This morning I listened to one designer describing the feel of the new Salon that this floral arrangement will showcase. From big hands wafting words like, "Jet-son like, modern, and organic," the vessel was selected and a creation was brought to life.
This is how my morning started. I leaned back in my chair and giggled. This is what I have dreamed of being a part of and never knew existed.
My boss then asked me to start pulling together a draft proposal for a non-profit benefit. Linens and freakin' sequins baby! High end glitter! Table lines of cream and gold glitter chevrons.
This will be a tented event. A tented event for 280 people. The entrance will be flanked with gorgeous white planters with live greenery.
Then my boss showed me the chandelier that will be center stage.
There will be metallic & glass balls and sequin table linens of silver and gold.
I am sitting at work on Pinterest searching for images to show the client how the designer wants the event to feel.
It is truly crazy when you get a taste of what your life could have been like if you had figured out you are an artist, a feeler, a creater, a dream weaver.
This is the vision of the designer for the Salon. The sofa's at the salon are a spring green. The smaller arrangements will go in areas around the reception area.
This center piece is over 5 foot tall and easily 5 foot wide from tip to tip!
