we like it wild

we like it wild: it’s so hard to say goodbye

by StudioChoo

We got a little teary writing this post. Today we come to you with a farewell love letter and a big thank you. It has been a wild two years! We are honored and so appreciative to have had the opportunity to share our floral projects and inspirations with you. Writing the column gave us a much-needed escape from the day-to-day business of running our floral studio and pushed us to keep being creative. We’ve shared our favorite flowers, celebrated the holidays and showed you some big milestones in our lives, like the making of our shop and Jill’s wedding.

We are grateful to have been connected with so many fantastic people through our little column and will always have a special place in our hearts for Grace, the Design*Sponge family and all of you readers who have supported us during our time here. We have lots of big upcoming plans, including the arrival of baby Choo in January! We are working on a book with our friends from Star Apple Edible and Fine Gardening, lots and lots of weddings and a full and fun holiday schedule. We hope to pop back in here now and again and share what we’re up to, and we’d love for you to stop by and see us online or in person at Prairie Collective. It has been a pleasure. Love, Studio Choo.
