SB Blooms

When I moved to Santa Barbara, around this time last year, I remember driving around and rolling down the windows to smell all the beautiful blooms!

This year has been incredibly fruitful with regards to flowers. I am so excited too because they seem to be staying longer too....maybe they are sticking around to show off for my upcoming out of town guests.

One of the things that I really like about where I live, is the over abundance of the flowers. It seems that every morning when I go out to my car, there is a new bloom there to greet me. Just from my driveway, here are all the different varities that I get to enjoy!

And...the best part is.....I didn't plant a single one of them, nor do I have to do anything to maintain them. :)

BUT......my favorite blooms this week are the ones that were waiting for me at the house when I got home from work today. Today was the last day of our quarter at work, and I closed a big deal. It was the second largest deal that has been closed at the company, and it felt so good to do so. I definitely couldn't have done it on my own, so it was so nice to be able to share the goodness with my teammates. I ended up reaching a goal that I was happy with, and so it was a good day!

Brett has always been such a wonderful support for me about work. He was so proud of me and picked me up these blooms, put them in a vase, and surprised them with me. Love him!!
