2013 in review — February

2013 was such an amazing year for me — crazy, busy, wonderful, but I didn't really have enough time make it a priority to keep up with my little record-keeping here. So I've decided to sit myself down and write a few posts about what happened last year.

February had a couple fun social gatherings in stock. There was a Superbowl party at our friends' house, for which I made a football-themed floral centerpiece, and the hubby and I rekindled our love for homemade Southwestern Eggrolls (here's the recipe).

We celebrated a dear friend's birthday at Oakland's Jack London Square. I gave him birthday balloons that said "Happy Birthday" and "About 38 or so" (the guy at the party store who put the letters on the balloons just loved it). You won't see a picture of said balloons though, because I did not buy the little weight that you're supposed to tie the balloons to — I figured we're all adults and a grown man can hold on to a handful of balloons. Well... let's just say that the balloons got away, and next time you tie a bunch of balloons to a chair, make sure it's a good knot.

I got to volunteer at a fantastic floral design seminar with the team of Waterlily Pond in February, and boy am I happy I did. I have since worked several amazing events with them this past year, and am looking forward to more in 2014. Here's one of my favorite arrangements from the workshop, "Black Swan":

That was February, in a nutshell. Only ten more months to go!
