A Study In Black And White
I'm giddy as a schoolgirl today. Though I have no idea what that saying means because I was rather sullen as a schoolgirl. Only giddy when I thought I was getting away with something. But I never did, get away with anything, I mean. I digress.
At 0'dark thirty this morning my boss,Marnie and I showed up at a hotel in D.C. to present our work to a room full of catering and conference sales people. We were stoked on Starbucks, well groomed for these 2 florists, and all went well. We got it. We're now one of 2 florists doing work for a big box hotel. Lots of work, lots of parties, lots of headaches, I'm sure. I hope we can remember the feelings of gratitude and sheer excitement that hit us when we got to the car. We love to work and we need the $$$$.
In celebration we went back to work, drank more coffee and produced a rather lovely party in blacks and whites , each encased in a different patterned milk glass vase. Florists, we celebrate differently, but no less wholeheartedly!
