Coco Shop Designer Taylor Simmons Wore Floral Oscar de la Renta for Her Outdoor Ceremony Overlooking the Ocean - VogueWednesday, March 31, 2021
CDC recommendations to ensure safety and reduce the risk of contracting and transmitting COVID-19.Taylor Simmons and Jameson McFadden actually met at Acme—the famed cocktail bar in downtown New York that has served as the location for so many romances and rendezvous that it spawned an Instagram account and subsequent podcast focused on millennial dating. It was late September of 2017 and Taylor was with an old friend from Antigua, a place she grew up visiting often as both her parents and grandparents had homes there. (Her parents live on the island now for part of the year.) She now runs Coco Shop, a clothing brand that was founded in 1949 and had a 60-year run on the island, making and selling printed cotton clothing. Taylor relaunched the company in 2019, and it’s quickly taken off. Coincidentally, Jameson was at Acme with someone Taylor and her friend had grown up with on the island. “This makes Antigua sound big,” Taylor jokes. “But our community is tiny!” While their friends were catching up, Jameson, who works in finance, introduced himself, and after a few minutes, asked if Taylor would have dinner with him. “He asked one or two more times, and eventually, I agreed, and we went out to dinner a few days later,” she remembers.The two started dating and then eventually Jameson proposed on a... https://www.vogue.com/slideshow/taylor-simmons-jameson-mcfadden-cape-cod-wedding

Eventually Hessong came home, and Sheets continued to run her machine, even showing Dale the necessary steps in the process.“She cared about people,” daughter Lori Arment said. “She cared about people’s feelings and their well being.”“That’s one of the highlights of her life to be able to help in that way at that time,” daughter Cathy Hiatt said.Helping others, faith and family were the pillars of Sheets’ life.

A Flower Display in Burlington Honored the COVID-19 Dead - Seven DaysWednesday, March 31, 2021
Vermonters who have died from COVID-19 since the disease struck the state nearly a year ago. "It often feels like we're just talking about numbers and tallies," said creator Jayson Munn, a florist who mainly works weddings and other events. "I thought this was a great opportunity to do it in the public square." Burlington was one of about 80 cities nationwide that hosted an art installation as part of the Floral Heart Project. Created by New York City-based artist Kristina Libby, the idea was to designate March 1 as a national day of mourning to publicly grieve those "lost to and suffering from COVID-19." As of Tuesday, more than 515,000 Americans have died. Munn said one woman he talked to had lost her husband to the disease. She told him that visiting the flower memorial had been the first time she'd publicly grieved his death; both she and Munn "started bawling," he said. He gave her a rose. "It was a really touching, touching moment," Munn said. Daniel "D.J." Boyd of Wilmington was walking down Church Street when he saw a crowd by the display and thought, Gee, only in Burlington do you see a bunch of roses in the street and everyone just walking around taking pictures. Boyd walked over himself and read the sign that Munn had erected explaining the display, "and it just struck me," he said. His uncles, twins Leon and Cleon Boyd, had died of COVID-19 early last April, just six days apart. "It's amazing," Boyd said of the display. "It's a good gesture. It puts it into perspective, you know?" Boyd walked over to Munn and told him he'd lost his uncles. Munn picked up two long-stemmed roses from the bricks, and then handed them to Boyd. https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/a-flower-display-in-burlington-honored-the-covid-19-dead/Content?oid=32450871
