Mother & daughter - the dynamic duo!

Mom. Runner. Floral Designer. 

Just some of the hats I wear in this crazy ride called life.

This life has taken me on quite the journey. From growing up in the Lakes Area, to college on the East Coast, living in the sunshine state and finally back home again and becoming a Mama to my baby girl in 2011.  She makes me want to be a better woman every day.

I have been designing flowers for 11 years and have loved every second. I love being able to create and be such an important part of my clients lives.

Thank you for allowing us to be contributing members of this great community. We have met such wonderful people through this business and the lakes area has some of the best professionals in Minnesota. I am so grateful to be a part of it.

Cheers to you all for making these last 11 years so spectacular and I look forward to many more to come.





The best thing about owning my own business, is that I get to do it with my daughter, Dyana.  I cannot imagine it without her as she is the creative force behind it all. It all started when I wanted to open a coffee shop and she wanted to open a flower shop. So she came up with the name and it's been a great ride ever since.

(She is the Petals & I am the Beans!)

I moved here in 1969 with my family, met a local boy, got married and had three wonderful children. Now we are the proud Nana & Papa to five beautiful granddaughters.  I feel so lucky to live in the Lakes Area and have my family around.  For something fun, I raise chickens, bees, horses, and just started making our own maple syrup. (Come try the honey which we sell at the shop!)

I want to thank you all, who have supported us here at Petals & Beans. It means so much, knowing you entrust us with your coffee and floral needs.
