Since Sunday, I've been working at a local floral shop for Valentine's Day. This is always a long week for us around here. It's nice to hear that orders were up 15% by Monday...bad news is we were down 2 designers from last year. This made for some extra long hours for the rest of us. My longest day was 16.5 hours, most were 8-10 hour days. One day I counted 68 arrangements that came across my table.
I'd like to say I am enjoying a few days off but I picked up flowers for 36 arrangements for an employee appreciation dinner Saturday. I think I'll take Sunday off for myself.
I hope all of you enjoyed your flowers and Valentine's Day. It's great to serve others, especially when they appreciate it.
