Forget Me Not Flowers downsizes to single location in Somerville - Fauquier TimesSunday, February 09, 2020
Caitlin Menefee, owner of Forget Me Not Flowers, said her Somerville location has been busy since day one (in 2011). A casual observer might think that the little shop is isolated, located as it is at the corner of Va. 610 and Va. 616, near tiny Goldvein in even tinier Somerville. But, as Menefee points out, it’s actually on the route that takes commuters from Interstate 95 to all parts of Fauquier. Forget Me Not Flowers is located on a popular commuter route at the corner of Va. 610 and Va. 616.

Taos event planner helps make holidays, weddings about you - taosnewsWednesday, December 11, 2019
Palmer.Palmer has worked with wedding parties who come from all over the world for a destination ceremony in Taos. She coordinated weddings for residents from Texas, Colorado and Africa, among other places. Many of her clients favor garden weddings, and Palmer enjoys such events because of the color and texture they provide.An interesting challenge in this realm includes a wedding at Old Martina's Hall in which the couple requested an outdoor garden theme in an indoor setting. "When I receive such a request, I strive to rely on visions of nature, especially the forest, for various types of flowers. I keep in mind whether people have allergies, especially sage," Palmer related.Palmer rightfully earned the name Taos Floral Diva, and under this title one may seek her website. Her business also uses the title Margaret Palmer Floral Design. Some of the brides and grooms become her friends and they invite her to their wedding as a guest.FamilyPalmer experienced some firsts in her genealogical lineage. Her late father Giuseppi Vitulli arrived in this country from Italy, thus making his children first generation Italian American. Her late mother, Evelyn, on the other hand, was a first-generation citizen herself because her parents came to the United States from Calabria, Italy.Her father worked as a Merchant Marine and came to this country with a strong work ethic. He arrived in America illegally, to escape Mussolini's Italy during World War II, and later became a naturalized citizen.Margaret Vitulli married her high school sweetheart, Richard Palmer, 30 years ago. The couple raised two children. Daughter Paisley, 27, received her B.A. from the University of New Mexico-Albuquerque and her M.A. at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. She is an archaeologist for an environmental company and plans to marry Matthew De Freese in Hawaii on Dec. 16. The Palmers' son, Allen, 25, completed his bachelor's degree at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. In April, he wed his wife, Serenah. The couple lives in San Antonio, where he serves in the Air Force as a commissioned officer.Personal interestsPalmer prefers to live in the moment, and loves sharing stories. The frequent volunteer helped with hockey, soccer, tennis, drama, fundraising and many activities in the schools, including substitute teaching. She supports the Taos County Chamber of Commerce as a member and an ambassador. "I like to stay involved with town things, and that includes political campaigns," said Palmer.As frequent travelers, the Palmers visited Europe and Russia and have gone American river boat cruising. The couple enjoys traveling with family. Anticipated future vacation spots include Alaska, Machu Picchu and Africa.In this season of Thanksgiving, Palmer said she is grateful. "I give thanks for another day in paradise. I live in a wonderful place. Our children received a good education in the Taos schools and they continue to come to Taos whenever possible. I love to spend time with family and travel the world. The Taos sunsets are the best. I love my life here with my husband - who's my best friend." ... https://www.taosnews.com/stories/know-your-neighbor-margaret-palmer,60914?
