Journey Journal: Days 98-102

Day 98-102: Monday through Friday, April 8-12, 2013

This week was a very productive week with multiple projects at work. We’re getting ready to release Dispatches from the Front episode 6 this coming week!

And we’re working on prepping for some exciting new conferences hosted by Frontline Missions. We’re doing a Pastors’ Conference series:

And we’re doing an FX for those interested in “advancing the Gospel in the world’s difficult places.”

Find out more about both conference series here. Plus, of course, there was the general office responsibilities. Have I mentioned recently how much I LOVE my job?!

Needless to say, we had a lot of work going on this week, so there wasn’t a ton of time for exercise. I still ate right (mostly) and took a couple short walks and made it to Goga a couple of days this week.

One blessing of this busy week was that my calla lilies at work finally bloomed!photo-8

Tuesday night was probably my favorite dinner of the week. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture. Oops. Dinner was an amazing sandwich with the following: grilled chicken breast, seasoned with curry powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and cilantro; fresh spinach; mayo; a fried egg with fresh basil leaves; a sprinkle of fresh parmesan; on a griddled onion bun. Slightly messy, but oh so delicious! Yum!

Another blessing was lunch on Thursday with one of my best friends Rachel at Grill Marks (a new-ish restaurant in downtown Greenville). I love the little basket of skinny fries! It was a really good burger with lettuce, onion, and tomato, and the small fry was the perfect size! And it came with unsweet tea!photo-9

 

Essence of Elegance: Cream and Purple Wedding Flowers

This past weekend, I had the privilege of coordinating our friends Shane and Kara’s wedding reception and creating the custom floral designs for their special day! Praise God for my wonderful husband was a huge help and kept me sane during the long hours of hard work. Here are some of my favorite shots:

Bouquets and Corsages – featuring hydrangeas and roses tied with purple ribbon

The Bridal Bouquet – featuring Picasso Calla Lilies, Dark Purple Anemones, Status, Cream and Purple Delphiniums, Cream Hydrangeas, and Purple Status, wrapped with a satin cream ribbon

Mother of the Bride’s Corsage – Picasso Calla Lily, Cream Rose, Green Hypericum Berries, and a Dark Purple Anemone, to match her daughter’s bouquet

Grandmother’s Bouquet – enter the Purple Status

Boutonnieres – featuring cream roses, green hypericum berries and dark purple ribbon

The Groom’s Boutonniere – featuring a Picasso Calla Lily and green hypericum berries with dark purple ribbon

Reception at the Hollytree Country Club in Simpsonville, SC

Submerged Purple Delphiniums with Clear Glass and Submersible LED lights

Centerpiece Vases placed on round mirrors with glass votive candle holders – dark purple napkins in the glasses, piped butter on the bread plates, bride and groom decorated cake pops with name cards at each setting, and elegant table number signs brought the tables together

Large Buffet Arrangement of Submerged Picasso Calla Lilies and Cream Delphinium with Purple Water Pearls, Clear Glass, and Submersible LED lights, atop a lifted light box. This was my favorite arrangement.

Bride and Groom Cake Pops

Lavender Bud Sachets for tossing as the Bride and Groom left for their honeymoon

I really enjoy the event coordinating gigs and love creating custom floral arrangements, especially for brides! It’s an opportunity for me to revel in the glories of my Creator and His handiwork in all the details of each blossom and bud and leaf–not to mention, it’s fun! Let me know if you’re in the market for a florist or event planner.
