Much of my childhood was spent on a small farm north of Pittsburgh. At an early age, I inherited from my family a deep connection to the land, animals and nature. I watched the land give us food and resources for clean living and eating. The feeling when I see or touch a plant, whether it is gardening in my back yard or tending to the many houseplants I own, brings back memories of being outside all day until the sun set above me in the fields.
I have always enjoyed creating with my hands, I draw, garden, plant, design, macrame, paint and I'm open to learning anything else that interests me. I suppose I consider myself a crafter but I feel it's way more than that.
For the future, even though my husband and I still live in the city and plan to open up a real-life Ruby Flora plant shop, we hope to one day move away from the hustle and pursue a slower, more intentional lifestyle where we could connect with nature every day.
All in all, I created this blog and shop to cater towards the houseplant-loving community that I found online and on social media. My goal is to help spread knowledge, bring more beauty into your everyday life, and experience the magic of nature through plants and a community.
