Just over a year ago on September 1, 2013, we launched what began as a Huntington Beach culture and lifestyle blog. Our mission has always been to tell the stories behind the storefronts and give back as much love to our town as it gives us every day. We have met so many talented, supportive, beautiful people during our journey, and the incredible abundance of local craft inspired us to create our Marketplace just a few months in. It's been a wild ride, and we're just getting started. We'll keep growing so long as you keep living and loving local with us.
Thank you again, from the bottoms of our hearts, to our friends who came out to celebrate one year with us this past Wednesday; to Beach City Brewery for housing our birthday jam, etching custom M&P/BCB anniversary pint glasses, and brewing epic craft beers; and to The Cut for rolling in and serving up delicious eats. We are feeling the love.
Watching our favorite people come together that night was truly incredible. Here are a few snapshots of one year. Click on the photos for fullscreen viewing and captions.
