about me [Terri Jackson]

I began Inspire Delight in 2010 as a space to share family recipes and floral tips. Shortly thereafter I became pregnant {after trying for roughly 7 years} with my first child. Cullen was born in 2011 and life as I knew it changed, for more reasons than Cullen. This blog was put on the back burner but never forgotten. In fact, I have tried several times to start it up along the way but life happens.  In this case that means my second child William, born in 2013. Now my boys are 4 & 2 and life seems like a sitcom and why should I enjoy all the laughter {and tears} to myself?  So...here I am.

I studied at the University of Texas at Austin from there went on to work for a small software company where I met my husband Richard.  It is here where I began my first company Celebrate With Us while planning my own wedding in 2001 specializing in floral design.  In 2004 I formed Fiori Del Sole, Inc. and opened my first retail location outside the Arboretum in Austin, TX.  2006 brought change and the company relocated to my hometown of Seguin.  In 2010 I sold off the majority of my business and concentrated on being the Director of a charitable federation.  I guess all the business owning stress aside made room for a new stress Motherhood.

I haven't lost the spark for floral design and over the years have designed floral for friends and events.  Additionally I have picked up passions for home decor, crafting, gardening, and of course motherhood.  Becoming a Mom has made the world appear in a whole new light and every single day is so inspiring, sometimes in the weirdest ways.
