“To some, sighting a hummingbird signals that challenging times are over and healing can begin. To others, these tiny fliers are an inspiring sign of hope and good luck.” – Emily Hannemann


I’ve grown to perceive things as signs, particularly when I’m experiencing times of doubt, worry, and uncertainty. Birds have especially been a significant “sign” for me, and with what I’ve experienced over the past few weeks, I was desperately hoping for a sign that things may turn around – and then – a hummingbird visited our yard – the first one of the year.


I’ve seen all over local bird groups that l’m a part of about their many hummingbird visitors for months, but not one had visited our yard. How fitting that one shows up right when I’m in the depths of some utterly low of lows?


I’m feeling so grateful for its presence. Here’s to leaning into what they supposedly symbolize, such as the hope that it’s time for healing to begin.

Hey there, I´m Jenn!

I established Emerald Pine Collective in 2021 to pursue my creative passions after a 10-year career in Human Resources. Through my HR career, I recognized the special connections that I seamlessly made with people, and am fortunate that now, in my creative endeavors as a business owner, to remain rooted in connecting with and establishing relationships with people, celebrating them and their lives, through creative floral design.


With deep roots in North Carolina, I have a true desire to pour back into my local community and environment, so you’ll often find me gifting flowers and even planting pollinator-friendly plants in my community.


As an extension of my creative nature, I am also a self-published author of two children’s books: “What Might You Find At A Produce Parade?” and “Finley’s Findings.”
