The ability to just pick up and go meet with friends has to be the thing I miss the most about pre-pandemic life. Just the thought of grabbing a coffee or lunch with someone I enjoy company with gives me pause. And then usually a sigh. The kind my mom used to make when she reflected on times gone by. You know the one that was quickly followed by a reminiscing speech about how things aren’t as simple as they used to be and how my generation doesn’t value things the same way…I find myself making the same speech every so often, and can hear my mom every time.
This past summer in our Cut Your Own Bouquet Garden we tried something new. We created a space large enough to hold a small group for a picnic. We were approached about hosting a birthday party in the garden so the group could cut flowers and bring their own picnic. I thought it was a great idea. Maybe because I wanted to go to such a place myself. But what a fun time they had. Our garden was full of conversation and laughter all afternoon. It was only meant as a trial, but we could quickly see it brought smiles to everyone’s face so we are making a dedicated space with it’s very own private garden for 2022.
Day 22 in our 24 Days of Giveaways features a Cut Your Own Experience for six people in your own private garden. It makes me smile just thinking about it. A totally immersive flower experience with close friends or family with your own picnic. Oh, and did I mention we will take care of the picnic part too?

I miss hugs

Oh my how nice it would be to bring my girlfriends and their moms for a picnic amongst the flower. When you were describing this in the summer it sounded like a dream and hearing it again in the winter it sounds even better! My mom does so much for me and I rarely get time with her without kids around. This would be such a beautiful way to spend a quiet day with her.

I miss taking my kids to the grocery store and travelling. I’m lucky it’s been safe where I live but I miss not having to think about small things like going to the grocery store with my son and him touching everything.

I miss going out dancing with friends! I haven’t gone to any large events since Covid and they just wouldn’t be the same with masks/ the fear of the virus!
