I did something. Something that I was so afraid to do...but even more afraid not to do. I entered myself, and my flowers into a - well, not a contest ... that isn't the right word - but into a dream. A dream of a dream. Into a place where a scholarship was being awarded to attend a flower workshop at Floret Flower Farm. (I know, right?!) I only told Jamie about it. This was something so special and so dear to my heart, that I was afraid if I told anyone else what I was doing, it might not be real at all, and that it would never - could never come true.
And then, the most amazingly unbelievable thing happened. I got an email from Erin - from Floret. To me ! I got an email with the words saying the scholarship was mine. Mine? Mine?! ( Oh shit! I really am dreaming! ) When I told Jamie, he totally thought I was talking in my sleep. And ... I don't even know what to say .... I have typed and erased over a dozen sentences now..... I do know this: I am so honored. So excited. So grateful. So humbled. I promise to be worthy of the gift Erin has given me. I promise to kiss every single flower in that field. I promise to take more pictures than we ever thought possible so its like you are there too ... sharing this dream.
