“A single rose can change the world.”
My grandfather, Woodrow, surprised my grandmother, Margaret, with a rose each month so she could enjoy her favorite flower all year. Inspired by their love story, I began giving a rose away to a stranger each day for a year as a way to cope with personal heartache and to stay open to love, magic and connectedness. I invite you to join me on this journey of giving to see what magic unfolds when we open our hearts and reach out to one another.
I share stories about the beautiful souls I meet along the way and all the magic surrounding this practice on Instagram @carrieschmitt and on Facebook at “A Single Rose Project.” I’m also writing a memoir about the year that will be published soon!
WHAT ARE ROSE CARDS?
“Because everybody deserves a rose.” Now everybody can spread love with roses in the form of these specially designed cards available in my shop. On the front is a painted rose. On the back is an uplifting quote.
