We are SO excited that our cute little flower van got an upgrade. Look how adorable the new branding is 😍 Thank you @a.n.creative @ullmandesign for the beautiful design. @ehint10 and I were feeling inspired with all mini sessions on the farm - we thought we would try our hand at a van mini session. Swipe through to see our ridiculously terrible photos. (Ohhh #7 😂) Don’t worry, we are sticking to flowers and leaving the photography to @ashleymaonephotography @elbie_cay_photography @monikeriimaging and @hannahmkittle BUT we had so much fun. 📷👭🌿
I would LOVE you to shop small this festive season! Support my small dreams, of one day having my very own studio and team, of being able to pay myself a proper full time salary! ✨ And while you’re supporting MY dreams, you’re also supporting the other small businesses that I stock, they all have dreams, they all work SO hard, and they would all love you to shop small this Christmas too! ✨ Shop small to encourage locally made and designed products, shop small to empower and bless small businesses, shop small to reduce your impact, shop small to encourage small businesses to keep going even in the hard times and shop small to foster the local community small businesses are creating! ✨ This time of year is nerve racking, as small businesses we all spend a lot of money to prepare for the festive season, but you never know if it’s going to pay off or if you’ll be left with so much Christmas stock! ✨ But promise you that each time you shop small, I do a happy dance, and each time you shop small you encourage me to keep pursuing my dream! :) Thanks lovely friends for your support this Christmas season! ✨ Tap on the image to explore the small businesses that APMU stocks, and go and support them too! 💕
Fun fact: Richard was born and raised in Italy. Italian was his first language, and he spent a lot of his younger days watching old Western movies dubbed in Italian. This led to an instant fascination and love for Texas. Fast forward to his time serving in the U.S. Navy where he found himself driving through El Paso and forcing his Navy buddies to make a stop. Little did he know, years later he’d meet his wife Suzanne, and his lifelong dreams of Texas would come to life, when they packed their bags and moved down to her hometown, right here, in El Paso, Texas. Now he spends his days cooking up barbecue for this wonderful city, and it truly is a dream come true for the entire family! #texas#elpasotx#elpasotexas#bbq#texasbbq#smokedmeats#stickburner#smoker#eatlocal#supportlocal

I am currently finishing up all open holiday commissions and trying my best not to allow the chaos of this season continue to swallow me whole. Though I do look forward to that huge sense of relief once they’re all shipped off to be given as gifts, with love! A week from today I will be attending @fontaflorabrew’s 4th Annual Yuletide Art Market, it’s one of my most favorite events that I’m sure to never miss. I’m excited to celebrate this year coming to an end and what new beginnings will await us! 📸 | @gwjphotography
Today we eat cake. We've got a slice for you too if you join us. We eat cake because nine years ago this morning we flipped on the "open" sign of this little restaurant for the first time. The memory of that first day has been mostly buried under thousands of other days filled with laughter, last minute runs to the store, tables to be cleaned and reset, refrigerators that need fixing, endlessly imaginative and delicious food from @herbnflavors, the occasional knock-down-drag-out-disagreement, coffee cups to fill, kitchen prep lists that never end, eternal weekend wait times, a griddle covered in grandma's pancake batter, and countless smiling faces (you!) who have not only sustained us in this difficult business, but also helped us thrive. We've long forgotten the details of those early days, but we do remember who was there by our side on day one. We remember those people because they're still with us and you probably know them too: Ali, Antonio, Zoila, Klever, Heather, and Missy. Of all the ways we could measure success, staff becoming family tops the list. Northeast Minneapolis has grown and changed so much since the cold December morning we first opened. We're soaked in beer, surrounded by some of the best restaurants in the Midwest, and booming with new friends & families. Through all those changes turkeys still rule the streets and we plan on welcoming you to the corner of 29th and Johnson for another 9 years. Cheers! Reflecting makes us emotional--time for some cake from our friends @sarahjanesbakeryne #minnesota#onlyinminnesota#twincities#mplsfoodie#nempls#supportlocal#happybirthday#eattwincities#foodie#foodieapolis#eatermpls
Today’s event was extra special ... last year’s holiday @alohahomemarket was the very FIRST event we EVER did!😆 & today, one year later, we did the same event. It’s so amazing what can happen in a year! I remember being SO nervous last year- I had no idea how it was going to go, would people shop with us, what if my card processor didn’t work😂 ... like I was scared lol. Since then, we’ve done a lot of events and I LOVE IT🌈 Today’s event was so awesome — I love meeting you all, seeing familiar faces, getting to shop with you in person, and connecting with other small shops. So mahalo to you all for continuing to support our small biz whether you’ve shopped with us at one of our events, shopped online, or even just follow us on Instagram👏🏽 We are so grateful for you and we hope you have a wonderful holiday season 🎄 Our online shop will reopen 12/10 at 8:00am!
