As you can tell by the title of this post, I GOT THE JOB! AND I STARTED ALREADY! The caps depict my excitement! I got a phone call on Tuesday from the position I applied for. They wanted me to come in for an interview on Wednesday. I was really nervous about it, I had night sweats nonstop before my interview. When I woke up I was oddly alert and awake, I think it was the nerves and my endorphins going crazy.
When I walked into the flower shop I was at ease. The flowers everywhere and the beautiful smell made me feel so much more comfortable. The interview went so great. I was out of interview practice for quite a few years… it had to of gone well because I ended up getting the job. The owner offered me it on the spot! I was speechless. I accepted and actually stayed there a few hours learning about the shop, their store layout, and a little training.
My boss is so nice. She was so helpful in showing me where things were and giving advice right away. I think it is going to be a great “work-ship.” I started on Friday in the store and worked an event yesterday with her to get the feel for what venue working involves.
I was excited I got to design a few arrangements for the party and a few for private clients in store. Even though I have only worked two days at the flower shop, I can tell this is going to be such a good experience full of learning. The classroom is completely different than in the store. The store has such a huge selection of flowers and makes each arrangement specific to what the client wants. I love it!
I really like that there are guidelines to each arrangement but the creativity and design ideas are endless. I am so happy the way this is going! I can’t believe it is only February 1st and I am already having a great year! The whole family is healthy, Bobby and Clara are growing into such wonderful adults, my husband and I were able to travel to New York, I am loving my life, and I just began a job that I am passionate about! Life is good!
Until next time,
