Feeling like there are never enough hours in the day and not enough days in the week is something we all deal with, especially when it comes to balancing work, family, and personal time. This only becomes more complicated when we factor in jobs that pull us away from home for longer than we’d like and provide chaos that can stick around even after work hours have passed by. We all want to make sure we stay connected with our family and our home lives whilst still thriving in whatever professional setting you occupy– but it’s by no means a simple task. Still, there’s always time to find unexpected ways to connect work and family life together! It may not seem easy, but wedding florist Lily Roden proves that it is absolutely possible.
