Happy Birthday Princess Julie!!

For my Waltzingmouse post, click HERE



Today is a special day for the Flourishes Family.  We get to celebrate our Birthday Girl - Julie Koerber!  And Julie is definitely worth celebrating!  She’s the right hand on so many levels of what’s beautiful about Flourishes, and we’re so grateful for her and blessed to also call this lovely lady friend.    

This summer a number of the Flourishes Senior Design Team girls gathered for a weekend in Yellowstone National Park.  It was a fantastic time of fun!  One of the great things some of the girls did was go Whitewater Rafting.  Because there were family members along, Julie graciously said she’d sit in the middle of the raft so the kids could get the most out of the experience.  The raft guide however thought that would be a fun opportunity to tease Julie about her “Princess" status.  She gracefully took it and we love to tease her about it - and so the idea for this Princess Birthday Hop was born!  Julie we love you and your fun, spunky spirit, and also the warmth and grace you live your life with!  Happy Birthday from all of us at Flourishes!  


I chose to put the crown, from the Make a Wish set, center stage.  And of course, a lot of sparkle was used in the making of this card!  ;)  Although we now tease Julie of being a princess, she acts nothing like one.  She's not pretentious, she doesn't demand attention, and she's one of the most warm, thoughtful, and kind ladies I've had the honor of meeting!  We all had the most wonderful time in Yellowstone.  Even though I was very new to the team, they welcomed me with open arms.  I'm truly honored and blessed to call Julie, and the rest of the group (as well as their wonderful families), friends.

Happy, Happy Birthday my dear friend!!  I hope your day is blessed to overflowing!!  You deserve that and so much more!!  {{HUGS}}

Isn't she sitting pretty?  Just like a princess should!!  ;)




We invite you to hop along today with many of our Flourishes Family to see our pretty Princess and Birthday inspiration, and join in on our wishes for Julie!

Comment along the way and you could be entered to win any Birthday set of your choice from the Flourishes Store!  Winners will be chosen and announced on Saturday November 23rd on the Flourishes Blog.

And don’t forgot to drop by Julie’s place to send her your Happy Birthday wishes too!
