Typically the new year brings renewed hope, optimism and a laundry list full of goals. This year has been tragically different. This year has begun with a number of heart-wrenching deaths; people taken well before their time, leaving behind broken, devastated loved ones. I kicked off this year attempting to sum up a life through…

I get that all the big box stores started putting out Christmas decor months ago; gives new meaning to Christmas in July. I mean who doesn’t need some twinkle lights and a tree stand in September? Oh right. No one. And don’t even get me started on tinsel. That’s another rant for another day. Today’s…

If fear suffocates dreams, self doubt puts the final nail in the coffin. At times in my journey from wayward Fish and Games tech to Botanical Stylist, I’ve experienced both. It took a lot of reassurance and convincing from friends and family, and a hard look at my skill set before I could finally put…

Some people grow stronger and become successful despite how they were raised. Others owe so much of that to the incredible people who raised them.

While I didn’t become a Botanical Stylist for the recognition, being featured on some kick ass wedding websites makes all the long hours and stressful nights worth it. Plus, these particular websites are kind of big deals and they’re pretty selective about the weddings they choose to feature, which makes me feel pretty validated as…

When I opened Flowers at Will, I worked out of the small garage in my home. Space was limited, but creativity was not. The set-up was less than ideal, but that never stopped me from producing gorgeous flower arrangements. I never felt restricted by the area I was given to work with. It never impacted…

It is often said we are shaped by our environment. Having been born on the lush and flower-rich Hawaiian island of Oahu, that statement could not be more accurate. From those first breaths of flower-scented air 32 years ago, flowers were in my blood. The path towards realizing and fulfilling my dream of opening my own flower shop was not always…
