I officially have a favorite flower! 

I officially have a favorite flower! 

In case you is wondering where I am, on my journey of finding myself. Now, instead of just doing what I’m told, or going along with, “you wouldn’t like that…” or “you should do this…” I am discovering my own thoughts, opinions, and preferences.

Basically I’m thirty-sixteen years old… 😬

Recently, I was shopping for butterfly headbands, cuz butterflies are my favorite. Somehow that turned into buying several chicken headbands, because I have a small obsession with chickens. My favorite headband has chickens and sunflowers, even though it doesn’t match anything I normally wear.

Last year, Duane gave me flower lego sets for Valentines (roses), Easter (tulips), and Mother’s Day (sunflowers). My favorite is the sunflowers.

A year ago, Ariasha found me in the garage picking seeds off an old sunflower, and asked, “let me get this straight, your friend grew sunflowers, and she gave you a dead one?” Yep, a sunflower head full of seeds to feed to our chickens. I also used those seeds to grow more sunflowers, because I like sunflowers.

When Duane and I were engaged, I was in a ladies Bible study group. They gave me some wedding gifts and a bouquet of wildflowers, including mini-sunflowers. These ladies who I had just met, thought giving me wildflowers seemed more fitting, then traditional flowers. I never would have thought of that, but 12 years later, I still remember that unique, wild beautiful bouquet, and I like it.

In the town where I grew up, every few years, as part of crop-rotation, local farmers would plant a whole field of sunflowers. It was beautiful! My high school senior photos were taken in one of those fields of sunflowers. 

Goggle says that Sunflowers symbolize: coming alive, warmth, restoration, resurrection, radiate happiness, and look on the bright side of things. A group of sunflowers symbolize loyalty (like a fiercely loyal enneagram six). Yep, sunflowers are the perfect favorite flower for me, especially in this season I am in.

I spend my time making Custom Softbands and Accessories for Ponto, AdHear and Baha hearing devices. I am also a published author. I wanted our daughter to see herself represented in a story - a little girl who has facial differences and wears BAHA hearing aids. The book grew to include some of our friends who are all so wonderfully different. My first book, “Wonderfully Different, Wonderfully Me” features a diverse group of children and celebrates each child’s unique strengths. All children can see themselves in at least one of the characters, whether they look similar, or have the same interests or personality. "Wonderfully Different, Wonderfully Me" is the children's book that belongs in every household and classroom, to promote inclusion, acceptance, and friendship.
