A moment of vulnerability with you all—we are now entering a time where, for all three of us pie girls, grief and loss has a deeply embedded and permanent place in our lives. It’s why we’ve been less present this past week, and we’re grateful your support and patience for us ❤️
Not many of you may know this, but this business started out of a season of incredible pain and loss for one of us, just barely more than a year ago. It’s what brought us to our name—the emblem of growth and beauty in brokenness, the Wildflower.
And here we are now. With either fresh or reopened wounds. In the midst of the wounds however, there are graces, or gifts, from God in all of it. The big one being EACH OTHER. There’s profound understanding, because we now all know the feelings of hurting this deeply, as well as watching the hurt. There’s comfort community, knowing that we have safe people to grieve with, to show our lowest self to, without fear. People who’ve been there and just KNOW. And people who maybe haven’t been there, but aren’t afraid to go there with you. They are our wildflowers, in full bloom 🌻
The ones we’ve lost are our wildflowers too. They were beautiful, strong, steadfast individuals who broke through hard ground with ferocity and beauty. They may be gone, but their seeds are scattered, ready to penetrate and prove that unpromising soil wrong yet again. And truthfully, we’re wildflowers too—just simply in the uncomfortable space between taking root and blossoming. And because we’re wildflowers, we will prevail.
They may be gone, but their seeds are scattered, ready to penetrate and prove that unpromising soil wrong yet again.
For any of you (and we are more than certain are some) who know grief and loss, whether fresh or not, you are most definitely wildflowers 💐 You are brave, steadfast, persevering, capable, fierce, free, and LOVED. Unquestionably by these wildflowers here.
As stated above, we’re thankful for your patience and understanding. This business grew out of pain, and it will continue to grow through more, so don’t worry about us going anywhere! We love you guys too much for that ❤️
