It’s Not About the Plants

It’s Not About the Plants

Anyone that knows me knows I am big on traditions and celebrations. I absolutely love giving creative and thoughtful gifts. I truly believe in marking special occasions in meaningful ways, but I’m even bigger on making everyday moments matter. You know, the milestones, accomplishments, and reasons to spread a little joy that aren’t on the calendar. Things like starting a new business, recognizing someone working their ass off, running a marathon, or just because you’re thinking of someone.

It’s become too easy to brush things off, to say “I’ll do it next year”, or “I’ll just send a text instead”. Life gets busy and we all have never ending to-do lists, but that’s all the more reason to slow down and really enjoy the little things. Because at the end of the day, that’s all life is, a collection of moments. So why not make every single one, special and meaningful?

When I first started Plantsie I wanted to make the world a little better and a little greener, but I never would have guessed how much people’s thoughtfulness and creativity would inspire ME.

I love reading what people put in their gift messages. To see how people are turning house plants into sentimental keepsakes with their thoughtfulness. To help surprise someone that just got their century ride on the Peloton, to memorialize a lost pet, to give strength to someone going through a hard season, to celebrate birthdays, new babies, new homes and everything in between. I am truly grateful for getting to be a part of these moments.

I've seen firsthand the joy and excitement that people get when they receive a meaningful gift. The joy it brings for them to know someone thought of them and cared enough to do something special just for them. These moments are my why, they are what have kept me going through the harder times of starting a small business, and they are my reason to wake up every morning and do it all again.
