Well. It has certainly been a busy summer here at Pollen. I ran to the Green City Market this morning to pick up a few last flowers for one of this afternoon’s weddings, made a pair of ceremony arrangements, then popped home for a couple of hours before Jennifer and I head off to Mrs. Murphy and Sons Irish Bistro, then the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum to deliver today’s weddings. On our last busy, busy weekend (with weddings Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!), I find myself with a moment to open mail, do some laundry, and write a quick note here.
I’ve been so lucky to have wonderful help this season. After a busy first year (Pollen’s first full wedding season was last year), I’ve enlisted much more help this year, realizing that I can’t do everything by myself. Thanks to this year’s Pollen staff (Amanda, Brian, Carla, Jennifer, Lee, Paul, and Sarah) for being so positive, working so hard, and making it possible for me to have a social life here and there.
And thanks to Kate C. Huber Consulting for improving Pollen’s internal processes and client communications. And another thank you, to Marissa Strassel Design, for creating a new website for Pollen, which will be unveiled very soon! I’m so excited to be winding down the wedding season with these improvements to the business, and look forward to having more time to work on improving Pollen. And I can’t wait to spend more time with my friends and family!
