Every week during the pandemic, dad would return from Whole Foods with a shopping bag full of flowers. It would be the funkiest assortment of blooms and the goal was to always make them look fly. What started out as a fun activity to keep us sane, quickly became the highlight of my week. So at a time when my chosen career path was uncertain, flowers swooped in and saved me from myself. It was a love affair from out of the blue, and I haven't looked back since.
