So this whole adventure started last week when I got a call from the City Paper saying they were fact checking a write up about LoCoFlo. I asked them what is was for and the girl said she wasn’t free to tell me. That seemed weird-right? When I mentioned the call to my friend Jordan, she said “It’s probably for the Best of Baltimore”. Also weird-because honestly I think this fabulous business is little under the radar.
Then, when I got home that day-these were in the mail.
I have to say- for the last few days I have been a bundle of nerves. Nervous that…maybe it was nothing and I was getting prematurely excited. But at the same time-excited that we might be in the Best of Baltimore.
So, like a freak, I got to the Evergreen Cafe right when they opened this morning. I grabbed a paper and quickly looked in the table of contents…best garden shop…but no mention of a florist. Dang…I thought. I knew I shouldn’t have gotten excited. I checked out Best Garden Shop…and there it was-right underneath: BEST GREEN BUSINESS: Local Color Flowers. I’m sure the girls at the coffee shop thought I was crazy because I was half laughing and half crying in the booth.
I don’t want to sound over dramatic-but this is a big deal for LoCoFlo! I’m so excited and proud of our work. I am so grateful for our great clients and growers and designers! I am so lucky to do work that makes a difference!
Thank you CITY PAPER! I think I love you!
