I've been asked why I named my business Poppy Grove. My 'bonus' dad came into my life when I was four years old. He quickly became my rock & my support. He wouldn't hesitate to call me on my stuff. After he received my first quarter report card from Cal Poly, I got a phone call: "I will NEVER see a report card like that again." (Okay, I admit - I was having a little too much fun outside of class). However, I always knew his love was unconditional. He paid his love forward tenfold to his grandchildren, who nicknamed him "Poppy."
As I raise three amazing teenage boys who stretch my love and intelligence every day, I dedicate my work to "Poppy" and remind myself to 'get back to what matters'-family, friends, self-care, and community. 💝
