I Can Buy Myself Flowers

One of the most over played, overused songs of 2023 and yet here I am, falling prey to its catchy theme. The over arching message is just so damn relatable - self empowerment, self care and self love. I don’t need to wait for someone to deem me worthy enough to shower me with flowers. I will buy them for myself because they are beautiful and bring me joy.


I recently discovered a local flower farm - only 3 miles away - that sells bouquets from their roadside farm stand. It’s an honor payment system - a drop box for cash or pay via Venmo. The farm utilizes responsible growing methods and of course, I love supporting a local business. Through this vendor I’ve discovered the ranunculus flower and now I can’t get enough.


Spring moments


The ruffles are to die for - like layers of a croissant!



Layers to Die For


Hidden Agenda

I enjoy these beauties every time I pass them in the kitchen. Looking forward to having more flowers in the house in the coming season.


Spring Retirement 2023

Another year, another update. Short and sweet, I've officially retired from my engineering job. I'm just starting week 4 of retirement and so far I haven't been (too) bored. The temperate spring weather enables all sorts of activities, from gardening to outdoor fitness to photographing all sorts of spring flowers.


Cups and Saucers


I'm settling in, navigating and tweaking a new daily rhythm which includes working on my photography, writing and other creative activities. So more to come.
