October has been extremely quiet over here. It has allowed plenty of time to gear up for engagement season, update the website, work on the rebrand AND binge eat Halloween candy, carve pumpkins and eat as many apple cider donuts I can without getting sick.
Although I have been enjoying this temporary calm working and playing month, I miss ACTUAL work! I miss working on events and designing bouquets. I even miss processing a car load of flowers with a pair of clippers. The hard work you put in for three days straight to see your clients reaction when you show them their bouquet is priceless. That reaction is what I live for.
I was discussing the color pallets and florals I plan on using for my November weddings with my boyfriend the other night as we were driving to dinner. I was gushing over the different varieties of greenery, the use of refined fall tones and the popular blush/white/burgundy combo. He stopped me and said "I LOVE how excited you are, I LOVE how passionate you are about your work". Needless to say it made my heart melt (thanks Jim). But I truly feel alive when I am talking about my work! Designing? That's a whole different level of happiness. *sigh*
Engagement season is upon us. Shout out to my clients that have already booked with Russo Fab!!! I'm looking forward to meeting potential clients and coming up with creative and beautiful designs for their wedding flowers. 2017 has been a decent year for business, and I anticipate at least doubling my work load for next year. A few big dates are already booked up next year. Email me to see if your date is still available. I would love to talk flowers with you!
On that note, I plan on enjoying this quiet time as much as I can.
I have a really fun Halloween themed #BestDayEver for you on Monday! Keep an eye out for that. Enjoy the rest of your week- live your best life.
