The month for love. For love in all forms. For young love, and new love, for old love, and for unconditional love. I have spent the past 5 days digging into unconditional love, of love that’s roots run deeper today than they did yesterday. My mom fell on Saturday. Taking a simple walk with her dog and my niece in her backyard. She broke her hip. And in an instant, her world as she knew it changed, as did my family’s. My parents were just 7 days shy of their annual trek to the sunny south to finish out their winter. They were packed, excited and anticipating warm Atlantic sunrises. My aunt and uncle, who live with my parents had, that morning departed for their 2 month trek to Myrtle Beach, with a stop in Virginia to spend a few days with their daughter. Myself and my siblings, going about our busy lives with sports and kids and crazy schedules. But all was paused at 3:15 on Saturday. All was paused when I arrived at Mom and Dad’s and saw my mom loaded onto an ambulance stretcher, down the little slope in their yard, her leg obscurely turned out to the side. All was paused, when I saw my Daddy, unable to get to his wife due to his stability issues, weeping against his car in the driveway. But LOVE was there. Love was there as my sister and I kissed her head, as I prayed in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, as I saw one by one my siblings arriving at the hospital. Love rained down on all of us on Saturday in the ER as we waited for news of her injury. Love was there on Sunday morning as we regrouped in her room, and her sister arrived back from Virginia. Love was in each tear they shed together and each tear the rest of us shed watching two siblings connect in a way that only siblings can. Love was 8 of us, following the stretcher down the hall en route to the OR to repair mom’s broken body. Love was Daddy holding Mom’s hand every chance he could. Love was my morning prayer today, the first time I have quieted my mind enough in these last 5 days to let this all soak in. God gave me total peace amidst this, He gave me LOVE in its purest form. Be loved my friends, and show love. It is truly the greatest gift we have. Blessings, Meg

What a whirlwind life is at the moment. We somehow have a 10 month old & by these photos clearly he does not like to be still. He is ON THE GO & fast for sure! This 34 week pregnant gal is slowing down & chasing him has me a bit exhausted these days. FIVE weeks from today, we get to meet our little lady. I'm beyond excited, yet if I'm honest: a little nervous what life is about to look like. I've got this one kiddo thing down pretty great, but adding another tiny human into the mix should be interesting. Who knows what kind of baby she will be like (if it's any indication lately, she will be a night owl...) Beyond grateful for God's provision of these cuties that I get to raise. Thanks for sharing in all this FUN with us! <3 
January was our "downtime month". A time to really connect at home, with our families. And let us just say it was SO good & much needed. Our boys got to spend lots of time with their mamas & our husbands got to spend some quality time with their wives, too! In this industry we are GO GO GO through wedding season, which seems to be getting longer with each passing year. We worked from home a decent amount & thankfully we live close to one another. January is also meetings galore, which is an exciting time for our business. We really love connecting with brides (&grooms) to be! >> It has been a great start to 2018! But we are excited to be back into full swing here at the shop this month.

Check out what our January looked like:

hello 2018!
Hello everyone & happy NEW year!
We hope your 2018 is off to an amazing start! We took a much needed rest/hiatus between Christmas & New Years. It was great to spend time with our families & just take in all the season had to offer. Now, it's back to business & we are more pumped than ever for this year to come. Our first wedding isn't til February, so January is a bit of an easy going month around r&r. We are in the mega brainstorming session for our fall retreat (more details & sign ups begin in Feb.). We have A LOT up our sleeves this year & we can't wait to see how it unfolds. We are praying that your year is everything you hope & more! Looking forward to getting to know you better this 2018! 
                                                                     
                                         
Our next OPEN shop day will be
the first FRIDAY in FEBRUARY: Feb. 2nd from 11-6! 


We have one class scheduled for January
& we are super pumped about it! 
CLICK HERE for details & to sign up! 
only a few spots left!

As we say goodbye to 2017 and welcome in January 2018, I know that we are all faced with that looming question. What am I going to resolve to do this year? What do I want to improve in myself or for my family or for my soul? I struggle each and every year to come up with attainable goals. Losing that baby weight(my youngest is 11!!), organizing my whole house, eating clean, working less, praying more, etc…...I seem to set myself up for failure right from the start with goals that can not last the whole year through. It is like that list you make for yourself at the beginning of the day that is 50 items deep, and at the end of the day when maybe you have managed to tackle 10 of them, and then only half of those are done well, you look at the list and instantly feel like you did not do enough. Anybody with me on that one?!? So how do we remedy this? How do we become those goal attaining, list checking, better ourselfing, bad a$$e$ that we desire to be? We reign it in. We reach for smaller goals, we make shorter lists, we look at one corner of the room to tackle instead of the whole house. We put ourselves at that top of our list every morning to do some self care. Maybe that is a good sweaty workout, maybe that is spending time in prayer, maybe that is a cup of coffee after the kids get on the bus in total silence. It may be 5 minutes or it may be an entire hour. However long, WE are worth it. Be your first “check” off of that list everyday. Learning to prioritize what is most important to you, to your household functioning, to your family’s health, I believe is crucial to staying the course, finding that ever teetering balance, and achieving what we set out to do the beginning of each year, which for all of us is to simply make ourselves better in some way, shape or form. My goal this year is to be consistent. One simple word. Consistent with my health, consistent with my business plans and setting goals outside of my comfort zone, and not to be forgotten, be consistent in my relationships with others. {I struggle in this department.} Time with my husband, my children, my siblings and parents, and some solid friend time, the old and the new. This word I hope will help guide me on a path of accomplishing much in the year ahead, without the pressure of too much in too little time.  So what is your plan? What is your word? What are your priorities for 2018? I wish you many blessings and a healthy, balanced new year! Love, Meg

As the holidays come to a close, I can't help but have a grateful heart of what this season was for our family. It was slow & it was good to us. We had a wonderful Christmas & Abel was so much fun to watch. Not only for us, but our families too. He's an absolute treasure. It's hard to believe in less than NINE short weeks we will be adding another little kiddo in the mix. I can't imagine what the holidays will be like next year, and really every milestone in between. It will be crazy, but the best kind of crazy you can get. Hope your holiday season was filled with all the love & laughter your heart needed. <3

hooray for summer!
Hello there! It's honestly hard to believe it's JULY already. (we're half way through 2017!) This summer is just flying by! We have been laying low the past week with our vacation/staycation & it's been a good time of refresh before we kick it into high gear for summer weddings. We are super excited for the weddings this month!
----
And with summer upon us, it means LOCAL blooms!  We are all about supporting local growers at r&r & we've added some new faces to that list this year!
Can't wait to see what July has in store. Hope your summer is off to a great start!
                                                                           
We're laying low in July with events due to our jam packed
wedding season & soaking in summertime with our families.
We only have a mama & me class on the books,
but come August we're back in full swing!

My July tidbits. My July tidbits. My July tidbits. This went over and over in my head these past few days. You know why? Because I am taking time to be on vacation, to be disconnected. To not be on my phone every few minutes. I have put it down, for hours at a time these past 5 days and oh, how delightful. But being on vacation is never really being on vacation anymore, is it? Gone are the days of leaving work behind. Gone are the days of getting lost for a week at the beach, or in the mountains, or at the lake house. I would suppose the times we are in with all of the perks of instant connection to the rest of the world, have also made us a manic society. A society where if we do not get a timely response to a text or an email, we are instantly edgy. Why do we allow that to be? Can we not give grace anymore to the person at the other end of our message, that maybe they needed to disconnect for a bit? I know I am just as guilty as the next guy or gal at this. I am irritated by a 2 day lag time, or heaven forbid someone takes up to a week, a whole week to respond to an email!?! But when I sit here, staring at the gorgeous Atlantic sprawled out in front of me, I am hoping that I will remember this moment. I am hoping that maybe it will occur to me that disconnecting for a few hours or for a whole entire week, is one of the best things ever. Sitting here staring at the ocean, I just want to be at peace with just staring at the ocean, or hiking a trail or lying under tree in my back yard sipping an iced tea. I want NO guilt for that. And the guilt my friends is only brought on by my own drive to keep up the pace. My question is, with where we have arrived in our culture, how do we rewind our minds and our souls to simple, to reset ourselves? For me~ I am going to stare. I am going to stare for 2 more days at the sunrise and sunsets. At the vast ocean and all of it’s magnificence. I am going to remember that this is my reset time. Having drive and working hard will get us very far in our paths, to that there is no argument. Resetting and refueling my soul with simply staring out to sea, is guaranteed to take me to my next level of “get it done motivation” when I come home. I am blessed beyond blessed for this business, this opportunity, this life. I have dreams coming true before me in so many ways. But for this next moment, when I close my laptop, I am going to relax me. And be okay with that. I hope you do the same. Love, Meg

Another month down & here we are celebrating THREE whole months with our little ham! I am in awe of him everyday & that God provided just what we needed. what a blessing he is. >> this has been a fun month to say the least; it's easy to see he's getting bigger. he loves his nuny, sleeping (through the night now- hallelujah!), his dog, listening to music, and long walks through town. We're experiencing lots of firsts; like his first swim. (he wasn't a fan; but summer is just beginning- so there's still hop). I love watching him recognize familiar voices. :) looking forward to the month ahead to see what happens next!
Last month was filled with lots of lovelies:
another month of 10 weddings & some really fun design nights, too!

We are so looking forward to the weddings we have coming up this month!
Can't wait to share more with you!

hello to the sweet month where summer starts! 
Hello friends & happy June! We are very excited for this month that's upon us. We are currently in full, crazy wedding season mode & it's so awesome! It's hard to believe summer is literally around the corner. We are loving all things in bloom at the moment & we can't wait to support our local farmers this growing season!
Wishing you the best transition into summer mode. 
                                                                           
We've only got a few spots left for 2 of our design nights in June!

Well friends, it seems as though we missed a month. An entire month went by with no newsletter. We messed up, we dropped the ball, we simply forgot. No one knocked on our door asking, “Where is your newsletter?” Maybe no one even noticed! But we did. We noticed on May 2nd, that it was, well...May 2nd. And not a speck of a newsletter had even been thought about. So, when I pondered what to write about this evening, it came to me. Just be honest. Fess up and own it. And oh, how hard that can be sometimes. I find myself often throwing up my defense mechanisms, my shields, my self protection. You see, if someone would have asked about our missing issue, I would have immediately pounced(not bounced!) back with, “We were so busy we did not have time”, but that would be a lie. Busy, yes. That is a fact. We are business owners and such is life as a business owner. We are never not busy. So that excuse can go right out the window. Not a lie, but not really truth. Full disclosure is~ we forgot. And I feel really good about saying that outloud! Imagine life if we could simply say; I forgot, I was wrong, I AM SORRY with nothing holding us back. No defense to prelude it.

It is a very busy season for R&R as well as both of our personal lives. We are literally full swing with weddings, 7 in 8 days during one stretch this May, and it is exhausting and exhilarating. It is everything I have dreamed of and more, but with all of this comes humanity and a dose of humility, with me dropping the ball in one way or another, in business and in life. A dinner I promised to make my family, a movie I swore I would keep my eyes open for, a bridal quote or update I promised to have done by the end of the day, a lunch date with my husband, I have simply forgot or not fulfilled.

In our world of trying to do it all, being everything to everyone, to be our best, to be THE best, we sometimes slip up. More often than we care to admit, I am afraid. I want to be okay with admitting that. I want to be okay with others when they slip up on me. I want to offer “I am sorries” and “I forgots” and let them simply be enough. The age of 40 brought an abundance of confidence in who I am to my life. Who I am as a woman of faith, as a mother, as a wife, as a business owner. But under all of my “40something”  sas, is still that stubborn, make an excuse before I can spit the truth self. I am going to try. I am going to undoubtedly make a mistake tomorrow, and I am going to own it. Baby steps. If I can do it once, maybe I can do it again. And again. And again. And then my friends, I am one more step in being the person I am meant to be.

Love, Meg

It's hard to believe our little guy just turned 2 months old. (we should be celebrating him turning 2 weeks old, but life is funny that way, isn't it?) Most of you might've gotten to meet him already; he's a regular around here. ;) Abel is doing incredible; up to 8 lbs. 8 oz! he's becoming more alert which means we get to see his beautiful blue eyes more + more.  he loves eating, sloppy kisses, naps in the hammock, and his puppy blue (the infamous sock stealer). we are just so in love with the joy he's brought to our life. my first mother's day as a mama was the absolute greatest. i am still in awe that God has blessed us with this boy. i'm super excited for the month ahead to see him continue to grow + grow! and excited for those of you who haven't met him yet to do just that! 
a little peek into abel's nursery HERE! <3 
Last month was filled with lots of excitement: prom, mother's day, and 10 weddings! Needless to say wedding season is in full effect here at r&r
and we are loving every minute of it.

We're celebrating ONE year at our little Shrewsbury shop!
Hello friends & happy April! We are super excited for the month to come. April 1st was supposed to be our SHOP BIRTHDAY PARTY, but it was postponed due to a little baby making his appearance a tad bit early. -- Nonetheless, thanks for making this past year incredibly special. We are super grateful for this community we get to be a part of! >> We hope to see you on SundayApril 23rd for our rescheduled event!
                           
This past year at our little shop has been so special for us.
We've been able to meet all sorts of new folks who have become very great customers & friends. For that we are feeling so fortunate. We've hosted a TON of design nights, classes, & parties, as well as sent many weddings out of this shop and as of now, 60+ will be headed out this year! It's seen a lot of love & flowers this past year that's for sure. Good news is; we're only just getting started! We can't wait to celebrate! Be sure to make it on Sunday, April 23rd from 10-4; we are having some giveaways you DO NOT want to miss! <3  [PARTY DETAILS HERE]
We've got some new & spring themed events coming up at the shop this month!

Well, what else is there to write about in this tidbit than the old saying...expect the unexpected. What an amazing whirlwind of excitement we have experienced this month. With opportunities that arose for us to stretch ourselves just a touch beyond comfort, we really were able to grow our minds about who we are and what we are capable of. During our trip to Vegas we had the joy of being able to talk to others in the business, some of whom were world renound designers, others were struggling business owners, and we were able to speak with confidence about who we are, why we do it and how we are molding our business to fit into the needs of our community. The unexpected giddiness of my soul, walking into a show, learning from master designers, brought me to tears. Every bit of me was filled with gratitude to God for allowing me to “arrive” at that moment. Having Shea to share that with was awesome! And talk about unexpected, taking Shea to the hospital, for a simple fever and her leaving there having delivered a beautiful baby boy, whoa! If we could predict our next moments in life, I think we would be too afraid, or maybe to excited, or maybe to boastful. If we could know all that God has tomorrow for us, we would not be able to enjoy today. And it may not always be great stuff, some of the unexpected can certainly throw us for a loop, and maybe into a tailspin. So surround yourselves with people who are there with you, who care enough to not just celebrate the joys but to dig into the unexpected heartaches with you. Sometimes in the aches we find out that maybe an unexpected human in your life, becomes a lifetimer in friendship. None of us are cut out for messy life. It hurts. But it forms us, and grows us and stretches us. And when those unexpected joys hit us, and you can share in that with others, what greater gift is there? Our lives are a journey of discovery. I pray that we all have open hearts this month to others. Share all of our “unexpecteds”, the good, the bad and the ugly and everything in between! Let’s journey together. love, Meg
Our baby BOY has arrived, 6 1/2 weeks early, certainly not expected, but we are completely ecstatic he is here! Abel Joseph Mack was born Sunday, March 26th at 11:45pm, weighing in at a whopping 5 lbs. 2 oz. & 18" long. We are just smitten with him & seeing him develop more & more. <3 Since he came early he will be spending some time in the NICU. (Which is filled with some of the greatest nurses ever!) He's making progress everyday & we are so proud of how strong he is. This process/past week has been a real whirlwind to say the least. I was expecting to be having a baby in May, not March but life doesn't always work out the way we plan anyhow, right? We are just feeling so lucky to have this little blessing. Thanks for sharing in this season of life with us & for all your sweet words.
We were able to go the World Flower Expo which was held in VEGAS! We had such a fun time getting to travel together, meet growers, learn new tips & tricks, and just get to see TONS of lovely flowers! Needless to say it was awesome.

We kicked off our wedding season 2 weeks ago with Amanda &
Stephen's Excelsior wedding. It was SO dreamy.
Last weekend we created florals & signage for April & Dave's Maryland wedding.
We loved their vibe & color scheme so much!

This month I am preparing myself mentally, physically and yes even spiritually for the busy wedding season that lies ahead for us. I am a gal who works best under pressure, a solid amount of stress and a tad bit of crazy thrown in the mix. The faster pace, the better; the later the night gets, the more creative my mind becomes; the multitasking of time lines and deadlines and game plans and hit the ground running plans, it is all a big beautiful rush of  adrenaline for me. But with that adrenaline comes the crash. The afterburn, the effects of no sleep, which let’s face it, in our early twenties was much easier to bounce back from! If I allow it to, it could easily suck me in and pull me into burn out mode, which many of us know all too well. I am committing this month, this year, this wedding season, not to just stop and smell the roses(literally!) but take some time to step back from the adrenaline rush and let my body and mind catch up. Taking time to spend with my family, committing a few weekends throughout the summer to time off, and putting Sunday’s back into our lives as a day of rest. How quickly we become accustomed to “fast pace, don’t slow down, because heaven forbid someone beat me” mode, and forget what really gets us ahead in life is our solid foundations we have supporting us. Our families, our friends, our God. Without taking time to nurture these simple foundational parts of my human self, my rockstar adrenaline junkie would not exist. So this month, my friends, feed that mind with a little something special, maybe a great read, an adventure, a carved out time for conversation with an old friend. Stimulate it well. Spend some time tweaking your workouts, your nutrition, spend time breathing in that fresh air. Our bodies are a beautiful temple for us to take care of. Love it well. And for goodness sakes, do not forget the simple beautiful serenity of spending quiet time with the first lover of our souls. A bit of time in prayer, reading a devotional or driving in the car, windows down, those tunes turned up, can bring a lift and new life to that spirit. Feed it well.  love, Meg
Last week marked the beginning of my third trimester! It's honestly hard to believe. Time is surely flying by. I'm currently 29 and a half weeks & just about in the home stretch. Our nursery is finally getting tackled & the nesting phase has set in. My husband deserves daily shoutouts for all the work he's doing around our house. <3 We cannot wait to meet this little nugget! 
check out our most recent live video
This past month we have been able to meet a whole bunch of new brides & grooms to be (and some sweet mamas too!) It has us even more pumped for the wedding season that's upon us! <3



We are currently planning our FIRST BIRTHDAY party for our shop!
____________________________________

This past year on Main Street has been so special for us. We've been able to meet all sorts of new folks who have become very special customers. We've hosted over a 100 events as well as sent many weddings out of this quaint shop. It's seen a lot of love this past year that's for sure. We can't wait to celebrate! Be sure to mark your calendars & join us- more details
HERE!
This month we will be featuring some of our favorite moments of the year!
March 1st, 2016:

It's so crazy to think that a year ago we were signing the lease and receiving keys (skeleton keys might we add) to this shop; our blank space. I don't think we knew what to expect but God completely has exceeded our unspoken expectations. We're still in awe of the ways He has intertwined our stories & blessed us with this little shop and business. We are so thankful for the people we get to work with & the community we get to work in.

This month really kicks off our wedding season!
We can't wait for Amanda & Stephen's mid march wedding at Excelsior!

So what is a “tidbit”, you ask? (At least Shea does!) It is a thought, an encouragement, a word of wisdom, a small piece of something I give to you. And when I pondered what I wanted my first tidbit to include, it seemed a no brainer. Although very cliche, where I am at right now, this day, this moment, this second, it rings very true. Follow your dream. This has been 21 years in the making. I did not give up. I put it on the back burner many of times, to raise my children (God’s first calling on my life), to pursue other passions, to try other roads. But this little dream of a flower shop has never left my heart. When something pulls you, when those little touches in life, “Godwinks” I call them, keep happening over and over again you must not ignore them. All of those stars will line up, and right in front of you is that opportunity, so take that leap. Trust me, you will not regret it. I am doing what I love, while diving into my creative genius(we are all creative geniuses in some way) that has been holed up for years at a time, I am growing in my knowledge of the business world and my desire to be better everyday at this. And my character is forming yet again, by hands that formed me 41 years ago, into someone I want my children to look to as an example, of a parent, of a leader, and of what it looks like to not give up or give in. I have been blessed by each and every job opportunity, each and every boss, each and every employee that was under my leadership. They have all provided a piece in this puzzle that’s picture is still coming together. My hope is when that last piece is put in (only God knows when that will be), that it is a picture I can be proud of because I chose to follow that dream; Go get ‘em tiger! love, Meg
It's hard to believe I'm halfway through week 25 of this pregnancy! Only 15 or so more weeks to go. This little he or she is growing like a weed & moving all around; this first time mama is loving it! <3 Time is flying by. Thank you for all the love & excitement for our little babe.
Our shop has gotten a lot of extra love lately. (it was about time) We've spent the past month purging, cleaning, rearranging and the massive task that is organizing. We're excited to be starting this year/wedding season with a fresh space!

We can't wait for you to see it in person.

wrapping up 2016.

shea mack

2016 has been filled with countless firsts. It's been a year of finding our groove, learning a lot, meeting fantastic folks, building relationships, and plenty of moments we will forever treasure.


We've had the opportunity to work with some very special brides & grooms this past year. Forty-one weddings have been created & gone out of our little Shrewsbury shop. We've hosted several design nights & private parties in our studio that have proved to be a ton of fun (with or without wine)! Our monthly fresh flower "prescriptions" exploded & we love getting to see regular faces for pickups every other week. Our tiniest employee (little baby Mack) is on the way; due to arrive next Mother's Day! <3

It's safe to say 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting & certainly eventful year ahead. We can't wait to work with our upcoming couples! >> We are beyond thrilled to have you as a customer & also as a friend. Thank you for making this past year beyond special for us. May God bless you & your family this holiday season. See you in 2017! And don't forget: you have til Christmas at midnight to enter week #4 of our holiday giveaways on our Facebook page: enter HERE! you don't want to miss this! 

exciting news: from us to you!

Our first YouTube video is gracing the screen in perfect r&R fashion, thanks to our friend Madeline! >> Check out our exciting news in the video & details below; be sure to stick around for the bloopers at the end. it's for sure worth it.

From the beginning at rosemary & rust we’ve strived to be a different kind of flower shop. We've had the amazing opportunity over the past few months to meet fantastic folks that we now call friends. -- Our vision of creating a space & bringing the community in has flourished beyond our expectations. We are in awe with how God has provided this all right before our eyes. It is a joy to teach our craft to others. With that being said we are changing our retail vision. We are no longer going to be open for regular retail hours instead we are doing things a little different.

We are launching our flower subscription program. We like to call it a “prescription” because lets face it, flowers make people happy! :)

We will have price point, frequency & pickup options available, once or twice a month. -- We are striving to provide you with the freshest flower bundles around & when we can: using locally grown & harvested flowers in season.

As always, we will continue to take custom orders throughout the week; so keep us in mind for those special occasions that life brings.

We are so grateful for this community we get to be part of.
