Flowers are one of the beautiful parts of life. We like to surround ourselves in them, grow them, infuse them in our drinks and teas, extract them and apply the blooms to our skin… but not all flowers are created equal!
Introducing Calyx Flowers! Kap Wallingford, the President and Owner of Calyx Flowers, is a Swell Alumni who joined the team after her first retreat in Nicaragua. We are so glad she decided to follow her bliss, because not only have we met a wonderful woman but now know where to get the freshest blooms and creative, colorful arrangements. Kap took the time to share with us what drives her and her business:
“Two years ago Mark (my husband and partner in life adventure for 29 years) decided it was time to escape out of his ” cube office”, so we started looking for a company to buy and own together. He left LL Bean after 22 years (yes terrifying) and I landlord for 22 years. We divested and put our life savings into Calyx Flowers, a national mail order flower company!
This awakening and decision to thrive and not survive all occurred while walking on a beach, watching the whales crest (on a much over due family vacation) on Maui…. where I found Swellwomen! At that time I made a personal commitment to focus on myself at least for five days a year, a retreat, for me! LuLu saved my soul in so many ways. To be by myself among strangers for five-days was a daunting thought for me… once I arrived in Nicaragua, I was hooked. A group of differnt people and a huge amount of laughter and adventure is what this 48 year old woman needed!
