What a year! We were busy until the very end, but we couldn't skip a blog post to celebrate 2011.
The biggest changes were in our personal lives, as 2011 saw the birth of two locally grown babies! Sadie and Pei-Yee gave birth a week from each other and we all were so excited to meet little Thomas and Leona. Then Aurora and Madeline moved in with their boyfriends and Chef Stephanie celebrated the end of the year by going on vacation for a month. WOW.
The best thing about all this is that Locally Grown Weddings kept going, and maternity leaves, moves and time off didn't stop the growth and success of the group. We are building our community from the inside out, taking care of each other and sharing the tasks and excitement of running a business.
2011 was full of weddings! We loved working with couples who decided to put their values in their wedding and to start their life together by taking care of each other and the earth.
If you haven't yet, read our posts from 2011 for more photos and details. This year we are planning on more great posts on green and beautiful weddings.
We also had lots of fun at Bat Mitzvahs! Here are a few images from those events.
And last, but definitely not least, we received our San Francisco Green certification this year! For the past 2 years, we have been working hard to support the local and green economy and it's great to be officially recognized and join this wonderful community of like minded businesses.
We are also happy to announce we are going to have a booth at the SF Green Business Awards Ceremony on January 18th. Maybe we will see you there?
Thank you you so much for all your support and your commitment to making our planet a little bit better every day. We wish you all the best in 2012!
