Reiner), 32, grew up in Potomac and graduated from Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville. She works in human resources strategy at the consulting firm Accenture. Kevin Caceres, 32, is from Sacramento. He is a manager with the risk advisory practice at KPMG, an accounting organization. They recently moved to Bethesda.How they met: Kevin and Carly were living in San Francisco when they met on the dating app Bumble in 2019. “I swiped on him because he had a puppy in his profile picture and a really nice smile,” Carly says. The puppy was Kevin’s then 3-month-old labradoodle, Lewis. As Carly and Kevin started dating, she took her pit bull rescue, Max, to meet up with Kevin and Lewis for long walks each morning before work.The first date: The two met at a bar called the Hi-Lo Club, and say they teased each other throughout the evening. Kevin laughed at how Carly’s outfit happened to match the bar’s decor—her sweater was the same dark green hue as the walls, and her gold jewelry matched the bar’s light fixtures. “Everything was immediately easy,” Kevin says. “We were always very open with each other.” Their next date was “one for the books,” Carly says. They met at a bar in her neighborhood, but Carly had scarcely finished her drink when Kevin rushed them to the next spot.

This couple opened two plant shops during the pandemic; now they're coming to Redding - Redding Record SearchlightWednesday, December 02, 2020
Redding, but the timing didn’t work out, and in March, Dill and Swanson settled on opening their first Plant Daddy in the Curtis Park neighborhood of Sacramento. They quickly outgrew that store and opened a second location in July on Folsom Boulevard in east Sacramento.Buoyed by the success of those locations, they are coming to Redding, and will open Saturday in the newly renovated downtown building at Market and Tehama streets.“We want to bring something to the community that raised us,” said Dill, who lives with Swanson in West Sacramento. “We are not moving back to town, but we will have a little piece of us in the community.”Plant Daddy is in the space on the southeast corner of Market and Tehama.Also in the building is Ryan Russell and RAD Studio. Russell, Eric Hiatt and Luke Miner own the building and have spent the past several months redeveloping it. Longtime tenant the Sandwichery also is in the building.Plant Daddy will join Floranthropist, One Heart Global Boutique and Crown Photo & Video that have recently opened in that area of downtown.Starting a business during COVIDDill, 29, graduated from West Valley High School and Swanson, 27, graduated from Anderson New Technology High School. They are business partners and life partners, who have been together for more than 10 years.

Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”
E. Stephen Hein Florist is located at 380 E. Second St. More info is available at www.estephenheinflorist.com.
Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php
Florist Who Bragged About Entering Nancy Pelosis Office Charged - Patch.comSunday, January 17, 2021
KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted. In Kentucky, Becky's Flower Basket has received backlash even though its business has no affiliation with Cudd's Texas shop, according to a WKYT report. Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.
