The idea for People in Bloom came to pass on a family trip to Costa Rica, where we found ourselves surrounded by gifted artists, jewelry makers, chefs, etc. virtually unknown outside of their small towns. It made us think about all of our talented friends and acquaintances at home – along with others we’ve met and continue to meet along the way. We felt they should be celebrated and recognized for bringing beauty to this sometimes difficult world. This is our attempt to do just that.
