The Blog About the Blog!

Written By Samantha ritchie 09 Feb 2019
The Blog About the Blog!
I’m so excited to start connecting with you in a new way… through the River Valley Designs blog!

My goal for this blog is to help alleviate some of the stress in your everyday life - whether you’re a bride, mother of a bride, or you’re just coming here for a little positivity and encouragement! I also want to help you get to know me, Samantha Ritchie, a little better! Besides being the girl who makes charming floral arrangements for weddings and special deliveries, here are a few fun facts about me:

  • I'm usually highly caffeinated. Where are my Caramel Latte lovers at?
  • I talk to my rescue pup, Koda, as if he were a person.
  • My nails are never done.
  • I don't have a favorite color… it’s too hard to choose just ONE!
  • I love Sauvignon Blanc, even though I had to hit up Google in order to spell it right.
  • I believe a walk through nature can cure any case of the blues.
  • I laugh at my own jokes.
  • I love candles. Luckily, I sell them in my boutique! (shameless plug! ;))
  • Sitting on the back of a horse is one of my favorite kinds of therapy.
  • In my spare time, you can usually find me listening to podcasts or audiobooks - learning how to better myself and my business!

I’m so excited to share bite-sized pieces of knowledge that will help you through wedding planning and life itself! Working with brides for the last 5 years has been such a blessing because I truly feel like I can help alleviate a little bit of the overwhelm that comes along with wedding planning. 

Your wedding is going to be one of the best days of your life! It should be FUN! So, I’m here to help make your journey a little easier, more fun, and laid back. Since day one, I’ve had my brides best interest at heart. 

So… what’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned so far? 
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Life is too dang short to worry about things that we can’t control.

I’m so glad you’re tagging along on this new blog of mine… If you have any topics you would like me to cover, I would love to hear them!

Xoxo,
Samantha
