💞When the spoken word just isn't enough #penandpaper
As I try to get my social media world sorted I feel that it's important to share not just the #happy#positive things so today I need to talk to #hubby let him know how I feel and a friend suggested I write how I feel down. So #heregoes#life#relationships
This time 3 years ago I had just registered my business name "Rylea Bloom", got a phone number, and figured out how to mount my logo on top a storefront. Things were happening so fast cuz I discovered the location, 12 Keewatin Ave, about a month prior, fell in ♡, and eventually signed a 3 year lease. Then I thought "oh gawd, now what?" I would officially be the new tenant Oct 1, 2015, and my goal: flowers in the cooler on Day 1. I had 6 weeks-ish. It was a very blury 6 weeks. I reverted back to my banking days and treated it like launching any large initiative: compressed timelines, constrained budget, no resources. 😂🤣😊. No pressure. And the most insightful reflection I can share with you on that 6 week period is: if you can stay focused, "less time" is a blessing because it forces you to be nimble, efficient, make smart decisions FAST, and really step outside your comfort zone. No time to mull it over or doubt your skills and expertise. Just do it. You learn quickly 99% of your decisions ARE reversible. C'est la vie. And all those people you think are judging you, actually aren't. At least not in a meaningful way. 🙃
Fast-forward to today...I am embarking on a new journey. Happening even faster than the 6 weeks I just talked about. #heregoes#imjustgonnasayit ... Sept 30 2018 will be my last day at 12 Keewatin.😮. 1) I will be taking my corporate and event floral business to my home studio. 2) taking on fun consulting projects within the floral industry. 3) hopfully do more writing...about flowers of course. 4) spending more downtime with the kids! ❤. This is a very physically demanding job, often when your family is sleeping, or when they want to spend time with you.❤
AND for my neighbourhood friends and those that like to buy flowers on the fly, rest assured, a new stylish florist (style approved by Rylea Bloom, of course) will be moving IN come October. Lots more info to come... so stand by! ...just working through all changes as quickly and efficiently as I can. Oh boy. In the mean time, ask me any questions??? I am on @instastories taking questions too. Love u all. #nextchapter #
Well I’m off to Canada! 🇨🇦 .
Pretty much a huge journey for where I’m at in life right now.
Not gonna get into it but updates soon.
Will be returning stateside for Resonance in ohio next week. .
Thank you for your support and friendship. So much gratitude and love. .
Here we go ya’ll. Going in deep. See u on the other side! 🙏🏼❤️🔮✨
So proud of this lady. Returning to work after Mat leave should be as easy as possible but she has had to battle and is still battling so many completely unnecessary obstacles over the past few months. She has tackled them with confidence, grace and maintained her integrity. We have had to make lots of adjustments but today as she starts her new job it marks another new chapter. So many women face barriers to work after they have children and employers are ultimately missing out on some incredible talent. I'm happy she has found one that will appreciate her gifts.
80s dance party anyone?
I took this photo on Friday, so it was a little easier to get into a trailer dance groove. This morning when my alarm went off at 4am again I wasn’t feeling it quite as much... just like by hour 18 on set I admit to daydreaming about rollerblading ( #nerd ).But then I look around and do a little dance. I get to play for a living. In all sorts of places and in all kinds of parts. I get to explore humanity and the world. A moment to pause and appreciate that... *
Okay. Moment taken. Anyway, like many of us, I continue to seek more. I am doing my best to remind my self every day to look around and be where I am. And be grateful for all I have. Not always easy with the pressures of today’s world.
So here’s another another moment, to just be grateful for all the hard work and studying and lack of sleep and missing loved ones and laughter and tears, cause it somehow amounts to joyful jig moments. So here’s to being back at work on a Monday 🙏and little #mondaymotivation for my self #grateful#heregoes
I’ve been wanting to try my hand at film for so long now and today I bought a 1970’s Pentax film camera sooooo #heregoes ! So excited to play around with it!
But until then I tried out #freelensing with this new vintage lens on my own #Nikon camera. Free-lensing allows you to have your camera and lenses detached from each other and twist, tilt and move the lens around to give your own artistic flare to otherwise normal photos. I still have so much to learn but I’m so excited to play!
Soooo here’s one of my first 🙌🏻❤️💐
