Last week, we wrote about the conversation brewing about West Seattle’s independent local businesses and the ways in which they make our community better. Here’s more proof. A few days ago, we received a note from the owners of Red Cup Espresso in The Junction, who wanted to give a shout-out to someone special:
In today’s fast-paced world, the small things are often forgotten. The things we take for granted are often overlooked, and the beauty we search for, more often than not, lies right before our eyes. A simple hello or a smile can have a tremendous effect on a person’s day. The connections born from casual everyday conversations slowly blossom into everlasting relationships. The Red Cup Family would like to express our gratitude for the beautiful flowers planted this year at the shop. All of this could not be so, without the skillful direction of West Seattle’s own Elois Gruenhagen. A longtime Seattle resident, Elois fills our hearts every day with stories of the farm, her teaching career, and her knowledge of all things plantlike. She has been an inspiration for us all, and continues to surprise and make us laugh. We are honored to have the opportunity to give someone a platform to express themselves. If you’re in the area, feel free to drive by and look at her work!
It makes us smile, to see her smile.
Thank you, Elois,
Samir, Breanna, and Gina
