3 years ago I had a vision of growing flowers and herbs at @stonelakefarms for bouquets.
The big idea was to give the flowers away to spread joy.
I even hand-stamped this brass circle with a cute name for the project.
Year 1 was an experiment. I grew way too many basil plants and towering sunflowers.
Year 2: I expanded it to reach those who have been touched by grief. It was an amazing turnout with a few volunteers who helped along the way.
Fast forward to 2020 and I’m gearing up for a new year of spreading joy!
It’s going to be bigger and better than year 1 and 2!
But we are always better together!!!
If you’re interested in being a part of the Flower Patch this year, I’d love to hear from you!
From seed donations to digging in the dirt, there’s a place for you.
Send me a DM and tag someone you think might be interested!
A little love for parents who’ve lost a pregnancy or baby. We shared bouquets with Hospice of the Red River Valley and Harylnn’s Heart’s Life & Pregnancy After Loss support group. May these small reminders feel like a warm embrace.🌹
This is a great news story.
In a climate where politics divides us so much, and where race is still an issue, and where hatred causes separation, its really refreshing to see our military, of all groups, celebrate a true American Hero. (transcending race and politics) I love this story!
You know what the great thing is about #spreadingjoy with us tomorrow? Even if you end up snowed in, you can still join our annual #SALJDAY! From work, from home, from school-wherever you are!
This is our biggest awareness day of the year and we need YOU!
All of us know someone whose life has been touched by cancer. We’ve lost loved ones to this dreadful disease, watched people we care for fight it with all they have and for some of you reading this, you’ve been in that battle yourself.
This day is for you. 💗💜💚💙❤️🧡
Wear the colors of #hope tomorrow and post your picture here using #SALJDAY.
We invite you to share who you support, remember or honor. We love hearing your messages of encouragement and so do our Dreamers.
I can’t think of a single reason you can’t join us tomorrow but I can think of 1,735,350 reasons you should. In case you are wondering, that is the estimated number of people diagnosed with cancer last year.
Can you see the sunset in the Buckeye Pie? Tonight I got to deliver this pie to one of my sweetest friends. She’s from OHIO and I knew she could appreciate this dreamy PB pie #buckeyepie#ohio@megs2121

If you are new here- I am Taylor, the founder of Live Love Nashville!
Have you ever heard of the phrase “have the same respect for the janitor as you do the CEO?” Well, I am both the janitor and CEO of Live Love Nashville haha.
I don’t have any employees, and I also do not keep a dime for myself- so I am proud to say that Live Love Nashville gives 100% of donations received directly to the cause.
Talk to your friends about your loneliness. Talk to them about the sadness you feel. Talk to them about your silly fears like how you’re afraid that one day your brain is going to just glitch while using the garbage disposal and you’re going to stick your hand in there. You’ll often find a “Hey, me too!” And sometimes, that’s all we need. We aren’t as alone as we think.
Lunch and a spa day for this crew...including baby Faye! I am grateful for so much about this...the opportunity to let passion be my fuel, blessings of amazing friends to grow and do life with, new snuggly babies who bring so much joy, a yummy farm to table restaurant to enjoy amazing company in and celebrating people who lift and serve others daily! So glad to have this day with you, ladies! Congrats on an amazing 2019! #endlessconversation#spreadjoy#entrepreneurs#gumption #leavetheworldbetterthanyoufoundit #livewell#amazingfriends#spaday
The sweet moments were hard earned today.
To say I've been in a mood lately is an understatement (thanks postpartum hormones 🤪). Elizabeth tested my patience by only leaving me alone for about 15 minutes and James was extra whiny, but at least he gives me a few naps still. 🤪
I failed the patience test again and again. I screamed at my kids all day and threw a pity party on the kitchen floor. Elizabeth asked with all empathy what was wrong...I felt foolish.
It's days like this when my husband reminds me of the big picture. Nothing is as bad as I'm making it, but when you're looking for the negative, you will find it.
I picked myself up off the floor and tried my best to brush off the bad mood for the rest of the night. There was some more yelling, but I also soaked in the giggles and watched James pull himself up to standing for the first time!
Now to get these kids to bed, soak up the quiet, drink the wine, have a conversation with an other adult, and have a better day tomorrow.
