I just made lunch. Everything bagel, vegetable cream cheese, smoked salmon, heirloom tomatoes, red onions, arugula, and capers. Yum! 

The flowers are for Mark & Cindy, tonight. One of Cisco's neighborhood friends growing up has an amazing set of parents. Both, who always come down and hang out with us on First Fridays. Cindy sells beautiful pottery in the shop (and hopefully will open an etsy shop soon) and Mark plays the guitar. It really wouldn't have been the same with out them.

Sadly it will be our very last first friday event at our gallery 221 STATE STREET. It was a hard decision to make, but after lots of thought we decided that we no longer want to run the shop downtown. It was a blast while it was open. We met so many amazing people, lots of talented artists and made some new friends. It was great to see the local support we have around here. At the moment I just feel I don't have enough time or energy that a business like this needs. So we wanted to do one last summer show and then close our doors. Of course Alana Davis PhotographyHumunuku Shoppe are still going to be around. (Actually the office is just moving a few doors down the street to 442 State Street) but we will no longer have an open to the public gallery and shop space. Cisco and I want to focus on some personal and new business goals and are very excited about new adventures in our lives.

So thank you again to all of the people who have been so generous with your comments and support. We hope to see you around soon!
