Dahlia Workshop with Petals by the Shore at Clear Ridge Nursery

Dahlias are in season and so are those September workshop with Kelly Shore! This time we headed out to Clear Ridge Nursery in Union Bridge, MD. There were old friends and new ones. These designers created some beautiful bouquets using the dahlias in season. Listing all my flower friends below.

It was a great summer. Greydon enjoyed swim team and baseball and friends and vacation. He really did have a great time, but we could use one extra week of fun.

He still hasn’t figured out how to pick up the cat with him freaking out and chewing on his face. We moved his furniture around in his room so he has more space. He wanted leftover Chipotle for lunch and barely ate breakfast. Most importantly, he has missed Hota Kotb on the Today Show and was thrilled she was back from maternity leave. Seriously, this kid…

He’s been pretty excited to get back to school though. He missed the routine and also got assigned a teacher he really wanted. And to boot, two of his favorite friends are all in class together. I’m just excited that he’s excited!

“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.” - Albert Einstein
