Daily Inspiration: Meet Kaylyn Hewitt

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kaylyn Hewitt.

Hi Kaylyn, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I’m an accidental florist. I started floral design as a way to help with my friends’ weddings the first couple of years out of college. I had never done flowers before, but it was an artistic way that I could helpful and bless my friends during a really special time in their lives.

I grew up surrounded by flowers, though, My mother is a master gardener and my parents spent our weekends growing up tending our lawn and garden. My dad a meticulous lawnmower, and my mom filled our yards with blooms. It wasn’t until later that I would realize flowers had always been a major theme in my life.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
There have been lots of hills and valleys along the way. What started out as artistic expression turned into a full-time hobby which turned into entrepreneurship. It would take an enormous amount of characters to unpack it all, so to sum it up and for anyone reading, keep going.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a floral designer. I’ve been a florist for a decade and it is one of the greatest joys of my life. Where flowers are, that’s where I tend to be also. I started a design studio, True Vine Studio. Over the years, I’ve worked on countless weddings, for magazines, on photoshoots, and in E-commerce.

Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
I grew up in Texas in a town that I was becoming more and more of a suburb every year. There was still lots of space to explore, so I spent a lot of time outdoors. I spent a lot of time in my imagination too. The two things I would often get called out on: talking a bit too much and daydreaming. I was very musical as child and started music lessons at an early age and continued through college. Music is still a very important part of my life.
