TGIF! Our journey has been long but we’ve had so much fun along the way. We’d like to share some fun photos from our past, so hopefully this will start a tradition: Flashback Friday pics.
This photo was taken when we won first place in the beeswax candle competition at the Minnesota State Fair. I know every state has a fair, but I just know Minnesota’s is the best. My favorite part of the fair is visiting the bee and honey section of the agriculture/horticulture building. You can watch honey extracting demonstrations, look inside some of the best hives in Minnesota, drink honey lemonade, and of course I love the beeswax candles. We’ve competed for several years but in 2012 we both won blue ribbons in our own categories. It was a great feeling! Now that things have settled down a little bit (we were opening the shop this year during the fair), we hope to compete again in 2014.
