Goodness gracious, I miss designing for all you Texas love birds. Designing and dancing have been my two favorite things I have practiced for multiple years. I will never stop doing either of these things as long as I live. When you find outlets that make you feel like you— the ones that fulfill a certain happiness in your heart, you learn to never let it go. It’s a good groove to fall into with yourself. However, there is valid reason why I left this dream. Dreams on dreams on dreams. I’ll never stop.
As my life has evolved, I have grown tremendously through my experiences. The last few years of my life have tested me in ways I would never wish upon anyone. In due time, I will share my story in full. Through these challenges, and growing pains, I have listened closely and found my next step to groove to.
I want to deliver peace. Bold dream, isn’t it? It sounds so, Miss USA. Although, at the root of this dream is true, humble intention. In a few years, or less I will have my Masters in Social Work. It is an amazing feeling being anchored on the quest of your dreams.
My hope is to work with battered and abused women. My desire is to not only use my skills as a social worker, but also offer my flower knowledge. As a survivor of abuse, I learned how vital it is to have special, safe, and empowering outlets. I hope to be in a place where I can teach these women how to design—-to imagine these women surrounded by such beauty, these flowers grown from the dirt of the earth, is a feeling I can’t describe. I also dream of bringing them the amazing gift of yoga. The damage to one’s soul after emotional, verbal or physical abuse is unspeakable. There are no words written to describe the pain, the horror, and the brokenness. Yoga has taught me how to breathe again, literally. Yoga roots you in the safest place in your body, spirit and mind. No one can take it away. It tears down endless walls of fear, and builds a true presence of life. These dreams I have seem big, and bold, but truly— I hope that one day they seem as small as a mustard seed. When all of this comes to fruition, I pray more and more aspiration unfolds. There’s a world of suffering out there, missing the world of true tranquility.

To all those who have supported Lindy Floral along the way, whether a bride, client, friend, photographer, family, blogger, or designer-
It is true, if you know me, that I let passion lead me. My journey through Lindy Floral has been truly amazing. Even more than amazing, it has been a dream come true. Life is short, and how beautiful a gift to see a dream become reality.
The beautiful thing about dreams, is that as you cultivate and manifest these desires of your heart, the picture evolves. The change is stirred by the dream itself, and sometimes life in general. As people we are born to grow. We are born a seed of beauty, and with every breath we grow deeper roots into our being. We strive, and pursue the things that make us full in spirit. This quest in Lindy Floral flourished, because I am passionate about designing. I am grateful beyond my words for all of your support. My vision for Lindy Floral, and designing has evolved into something that looks much different.
So here it is: I am no longer offering my services. It is time for me to pursue these other wildly important dreams. I truly feel a magnetic pull in this new direction. It has already been so cool to see the development. I could not agree more with the idea that as humans, wherever we go, go with ALL your heart. It will lead you to a beautiful, rich life.
With all of that said, I give so many thanks-
To my heart’s desire for this work, to my family and true friends, all of my clients, to Nycia Emerson, Shalyn and Drew Nelson, Ryan Ray, Chad and Tressie Zellner, Kim Ellis, Bridget Zufelt, Willow Witten, Kevin Molesworth, Leah Muse, Julie Cope, Keith Davis, Jeff Cooper, Caroline Joy, Stefanie Miles, Emily Leach, Emily Albino, Mandy Wright, Danielle Mackin, the staff at Austin Flower Company, Greenleaf, and Amber Gonzales at Bill Doran.

I am honored today to share with you that I am now a Blue Ribbon Vendor on Southern Weddings Magazine! Thank you to the SW ladies, Ryan Ray, Laura Alexander Wittig, and Emily Albino! Thrilled to be serving future Southern brides, and to be a part of this wonderful community of talented, caring creatives. Happy Thursday!
I want to tell you one of the most important and strongest desires I have for my wedding clients. It is plain and simple, but so worth sharing. When you become engaged and begin the planning process, picking vendors for your day, the ball starts rolling… and it starts rolling fast. Everything you imagine starts to formulate, and you begin to wonder how there will be time to plan everything while still staying sane. This is where I come in.
Being chosen as one of your vendors is such a great honor for such a beautiful, life-changing day. Truly, know that— It is an honor. More than that, it is a weight I want to carry for you. As your floral designer, my hope is that I may relieve any level of stress possible. Why? I’ll tell you. It is insanely important to me that you keep your focus on your relationship. It is the reason why we know each other. It is the reason why this gorgeous day is coming together. Your LOVE is what will make the entire day shine in a way that no flower design, no table linen, no dress, no amount of decoration could. Please allow me, and the rest of your vendors, that you carefully select, carry your stress. That is what we are here for. And surprise! It isn’t stress for us. We would not be doing what we do if this was not a passion from deep within. It isn’t stress for me, because I am doing what I love. I am thankful for this gift I have been given to put together intricate flowers of all colors, shapes, textures and sizes. So, please be my guest. I am here to know you, and create for you. I am here if you want preferred vendors that I highly respect, and admire for these same reasons I speak of. I am here for you to give my all, bounce ideas off of, to have fun with if needed, to give you a smile, & to watch your relationship strengthen. It is so important that I serve you in a way that allows you to focus on letting your love grow and flourish. After all, that is what it is all about.
So, in summary:
