We also hope you know how much your support this past week means to this small event based business. Mother's Day was the light we needed to see as it shown bright that beauty, generosity, and camaraderie are alive + well even in the muddiness of such stress filled, uncertain times.
We saw it at every turn from every direction- in our online store tech support going above and beyond to help us meet compliance requirements, our flower farmers making special trips to town to bring product; our Kennicott Milwaukee wholesaler letting us know more #americangrown product arrived and putting together a last minute vessel order; Colectivo Coffee moving forward with hosting our yearly pop up and offering us a conference room so we wouldn't have to work out of a van (no way that one would have worked out well); a college friend offering to help find media attention and coaching us through;
Brian Kramp and @Suzanne barthell generously encouraging and supporting a tv neophyte; more friends streaming the coverage from the East coast; a stranger calling to say the 9:15 segment was a good one; Clark Graphics Milw rush printing signage and care cards so we wouldn't have to go to a big chainstore printer; friends and family sharing posts, posting pictures of their flowers, and even inventing reasons to buy flowers for others; a spouse checking in every few hours to say, "you're doing great! You've got this!" alongside making sure food and sleep were happening; an employee offering a deeply discounted rate on labor (don't worry, we didn't let that one happen:-) customers calling, texting, and emailing to say how much they enjoyed their flowers; another floral company offering distanced assistance if we needed it; and finally, Milwaukeeans turning up to celebrate their Moms with our flowers and the flowers of all our floral friends.
We have so much gratitude that mere words couldn't possibly convey how we're feeling. So, said simply– Thank you.
