This last week has been one of the toughest, and yet there’s been so much beauty in it ♥️ here’s the story i owe to you guys: about 10 years ago my family relocated to europe, except me. i stayed behind in ca bc i just couldn’t leave it for good ☀️🥑🌴 they left behind their house here in the valley (suburbs of la). i lived and managed it for several years before moving to slo with my hubby. i always kept my room and most of my things here as i’m constantly visiting la. at the time my family left behind a house full of life and memories bc they were convinced they would move back in 2-3 years. almost 10 years later and moving back is still not in sight for them, though my sweet little brother made it back last year 💖 i couldn’t be more grateful! now, we are just a few days away from the close of escrow on this house (separate from my house in slo) and the amount of time that we’ve all put into cleaning out our lives here has been overwhelming to say the least. this property has a motherload of memories, keepsakes and things we’ve all accumulated and left behind for years. last weekend we all came together here for the first time in 4 years and gave it our undivided time and attention. i felt like we barely made a dent and that’s partly because my mom kept pulling boxes out to keep! hahah j/k mom! 💕😘 through busy times like these you get to hang out and learn even more about your family, and that’s been precious in its own way 💖 the packing continues this week, but almost done. this process hasn’t been easy on any of us but we’ve been there for one another and found ways to make it fun 😅. though it would have been much easier on me to have been anywhere else during these past weeks, i wanted to be here. i chose to be here. because family. 💖 we’re about to close on this long-time-coming chapter in just a few days! thank you guys for your support and patience as i wrap up here. i know that you guys understand and i love you for it ♥️xx http://firstname.lastname@example.org#liketkit

Looking forward to spending some time in my studio this weekend. march has turned into a very busy month and i haven’t had much time to create anything new or check in regularly, but i have a few designs i’m hoping to start soon. life balance’s seem to be an ever evolving process. ✨ 📷: @helenbankers for @yourhomeandgarden

This week we've been planning, prototyping, and shooting our spring/summer seasonal collection (which will launch on tuesday - the first day of spring - #amentothat ). so we thought this would be a good time for an overview/refresher on how we approach our collections!
first and foremost, our signature collection stems are available year-round. they're special because we've carefully designed them to play well together in many combinations of color, texture, and form. you'll find them in our signature bouquets (recipes we've developed with some of our favorite combinations), in bunches (trios of a single stem, because if one is great, then three are amazing), and in our "build your own bouquet" listings (yes, you can personalize your recipe by picking out your own perfect combination)!
our seasonal collections give us a chance to augment our signature collection with some fun new colors and blooms each spring/summer and fall/winter. this is what we've had our heads, hands, and hearts in this week, and we are so excited to launch the new spring/summer blooms and colors on tuesday! you'll see eight new bouquet recipes that each incorporate new seasonal stems along with our signature blooms.
while we also do some holiday launches, limited editions, and custom work, our signature and seasonal collections are the heart and soul of our mission to spread lively color and share lasting joy. there's always something blooming, and we're proud to offer you endless possibilities and combinations for a beautiful bouquet!
Sorry folks, july 4th week is already spoken for, but there’s still some availability in july! book your #balsamwest oceanfront getaway through our link in bio ☀️🌊

Being natural is incredibly empowering for women because it's just who you are. you're embracing all the beautiful things about you from your head to your toes. because when you mask so much of your natural beauty, people don't get to see that. rthomas
So langsam werde ich wieder ich selbst. so ganz wohl fühle ich mich noch nicht in meiner haut und ich muss mir immer wieder ins gefängnis rufen, dass ich ruhig ein paar kilos zu viel haben darf. schließlich hat mein körper 9 monate lang außergewöhnliches erbracht und eine menge geleistet. es ist ein großer unterschied mit 19 und mit 26 mama zu werden. es bildet sich nicht alles so schnell zurück, wie beim ersten kind und manchmal bin ich wirklich frustriert. aber ich versuche trotzdem das beste draus zu machen & ab nächsten monat geht es los mit rückbildungsgymnastik und dann werde ich wieder aktiver 💪🏼 freue mich darauf, mit @zelal_kisin laufen zu gehen & die kilos purzeln zu lassen und das wohlbefinden wieder zu steigern 🤗😍 #happyweekend#mama
Our children's health and wellness is so important to us mamas. we can't bear seeing our children feeling miserable and struggling with blocked noses, coughs and fevers.
that's where essential oils come in. they can help support our little ones through these times and give us mums peace of mind that they're receiving 100% natural remedies. immunity blends can be used every day to support their immune systems and when diffused, they'll k**l the pathogens in the air too. win win!
