Met with the florist for the first time today, and walked away from the meeting so happy that I just had to broadcast my good fortune. I completely, desperately wanted manzanita branches as the focal point of our centerpieces, but they're near impossible to get in Canada. Me currently being an optimist, though, I brought my inspiration pictures of them with me anyway, and when she saw them she almost hit the roof. It turns out she's been fighting tooth and nail to get ahold of manzanita branches, and finally succeeded just a short while ago!!! She is the only person anywhere around who has them. I swear it was meant to be.
