OC's Newest Floral Designer

I got the job! I am officially Orange County's newest floral designer and event planner for a darling little flower shop in Laguna Beach. I met with the owners Friday for my second interview and was offered the job on the spot. There are so many great things to look forward to with this new career that I can hardly contian myself. For one, the owners are incredible. They are more about seeing that their employees are well taken care of, rather than growing their own pocketbooks. Which, needless to say, is hard to come by these days. Also, they are only open Monday through Saturday. Hallelujah! And most importantly, they love me! They are confident that I will bring to the store and their events, the aesthetic that has been missing for so long. I hope that with my knowledge of design and eye for color, I can meet and exceed their expectations. I start in three weeks which is just enough time to finish a few of the Interior Design projects I'm currently wrapped up in, and to take a quick trip down to Arizona to see some family and friends. I can't help but think that this blessing is a direct result of my recent work on the Proposition 8 campaign. I still remember the words of Elder Ballard when he said that we will recieve blessings and see miracles if we will do all we can to support this cause. I feel showered with His love. Now I can pay rent, my car payment, AND eat food. That's something to be thankful for!
