my squee

image by pgjennielove
I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.
And nervous.
After a tremendous amount of hemming and hawing and mulling over and vacillating between being excited and feeling way too insecure..... I am going back to school.

Sort of.

I'm officially registered for all the core courses to complete a Certificate of Merit in Floral Design.
Which is a very different direction from my previous formal education.
But oh my goodness how good it feels in my soul to think about the tactile experiences that await me!
Although I'm nervous about memorizing scads of flower types. I haven't used that part of my brain in a long long time.

I'm so happy that there are people who love me enough to facilitate such an awesome opportunity. I threw the idea out into the world of things-said-out-loud with very little hope for actualization. It's my own mini-miracle. Even class times have mysteriously changed to work better with our schedule so we won't need as much babysitting.

Come June the flowers may take over my blog.
