To Move or Proceed Away From A Place

To move or to proceed away from a place sure sounds better than to quit.
So I am here to announce that I am moving away from a place and proceeding to another and doing something that I love and giving it my full devotion. 

I cannot believe how amazing the year of 2015 was!  

I flowered for over 40 couples in Des Moines and central Iowa, designed several corporate parties and a few bridal and baby showers along the way. I also helped a couple of friends celebrate the lives of loved ones and honored their memories with flowers. 

Today I am working from my home office. But, Brenda, don't you usually work from your home office? Nope, and here is why. 

For the last 6 years while building As You Wish I have worked a part-time job. And this job was a blessing to me. I was able to work around my schedule for weddings, events and client meetings. In the evenings I researched, wrote proposals and meet with more clients and dreamed of the day I would have a free evening. Well not all the time but I did think about it.  

But now….duntadada! I am full time as a wedding and event florist. Pursuing the dream I have had for the last 6 years. 

I am so excited!! This year has started off with a huge BANG! And it just keeps on getting better and better. Keep checking back to see beautiful pictures and tales of a Des Moines wedding florist.

Her Two Favorite Things

This was a Christmas gift that one of my 2015 brides received from her husband. He told her that it had two of her favorite things from their wedding in it, his suit and her bouquet!  

How sweet is that. That is pretty special and I could not have been happier seeing this. Love it!  

Here is where he got that beautiful print made,
