Kaliope Floral Design

Kim Adcox is a floral designer based in Portland, Oregon. We met years ago when we were both waiting tables at Blowfish. We also both started our businesses at the same time after getting schooled at Women's Initiative. We often share our business triumphs...and occasionally our business woes.

I recently tagged along with her to the flower market and then observed her process as she carefully pondered colors, textures and composition to create bouquets for our friends Meredith and Dave's wedding.

The result was stunning!

Sunny Family Florida Fun

I grew up in Gainesville, Florida and I try to make at least one summer visit to soak up some vitamin D and eat my fill of southern food. Since June through August here is San Francisco is foggy and fairly disappointing, I feel cheated if I don't go somewhere warm for a few weeks. I am happy to live on watermelon, boiled p-nuts, Sonny's BBQ, and lots of veggies from my mom's garden while I'm there. It's wonderful to not have an agenda for the day except to drink lots of water, swim, read, and visit.
