7 year anniversary!

december 19th marks a special day in my life! seven years ago today i started working at nokomis. the shop had only been open for three months, and i was hired, temporarily, for the christmas season. but once i started, i was hooked. and seven years later, as now the owner of the shop, i still am. when i began, i was still finishing up my degree at the university of alberta (i had three more semesters), and had imagined myself moving away once i was done. but here i am, loving edmonton and all the opportunities that have come my way. i am so grateful for the support all of the community has shown nokomis. i feel blessed to walk into such a beautiful shop each and everyday and to meet so many lovely folks along the way. thank you.

Hola! What an adventure. You are (and always will be) the heart of Nokomis. That Gini sure was clever to hire you in the first place. I know amazing things will happen as long as you hold the reins. It's a pleasure to know you and see you in action, happy anniversary and here's to a million more.

xoxoxox.

Aw. How touching.

When I first walked into the store, the first person I met was you and I was enchanted by it all.

Thank you for all your hard work.
