What I saw looking out the window of Hotel Henry. For non-Buffalonians, Hotel Henry was built inside a portion of the Buffalo Psychiatric Center which was vacant for many years. Buffalo has seen a growing reuse of older structures which in the past were demolished to pave the way for parking lots. Built in 1870 of Medina Sandstone (Medina is 25 miles from Buffalo) it was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson with grounds landscaped by Frederick Law Olmstead. There are other similar buildings on the grounds that have been stabilized waiting for future reuse. #hotelhenry#indabuff#buffalony#buffalolove
I found these super cool straight razor pins and bought one for each of the barbers at Jonny the Barber. It's the least I can do for this amazing group of young men. Everyone of them has graciously embraced me as a teammate and offered help every step of the way as I learn the craft they have all perfected. I did my first hair cut only 6 weeks ago and I have advanced at a pace that I never even thought was imaginable. I'm still cutting for free and learning but I'm not really learning technique at this point ... I am learning efficient movement and bringing my cut time down.

REFERRALS: We really appreciate the businesses and individuals who pass our name along to people needing custom t's and items. We have good working relationships with different screen printers around WNY because we compliment their services. Where they need to make screens we don't, which is why we don't have to require minimum orders. 🇺🇸This is how we met Juana Otero. She came to us pretty frustrated and running out of time. She needed 8 individually customized shirts, where no two were alike, in 1 week before leaving for graduation. We ordered colors/sizes she needed and printed them in time. 😊When we sent her the proofs, she wrote back that there were tears in her eyes. Proud mom and several family members were able to make it to her son's graduation from basic training for the US Marines with t-shirts in hand. I forgot to take pictures of the back of these blue shirts. They were customized with "mom", "sister", and "bonus dad."
#MondayMeetTheTeam - Meet @stefrohring, Senior Consultant working out of Buffalo, New York! Her favorite part about working with clients is learning about their business and using Anaplan to make their work lives better. Outside of Twelve, she loves skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, planning her next vacation or taking fun pictures of her dogs Gus and Rufus (See Insta story for pictures). Lastly, she is a big reader, and tries to read 40 books a year!

I’ve been absent from Instagram. You probably didn’t notice and that’s exactly what I was hoping for. 😂 I just needed a break. I love this platform so much but sometimes it makes me feel like I’m falling short and that’s when I know I need time away from it. There’s a weird pressure here to look like we have it all together all the time, but the real honest truth is that NONE OF US DO. We all know this; it’s universal. Why is it so hard to admit publicly? Well here’s some raw honesty for you: at least 80% of the time, I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing - as a mom, as a wife, as a business owner, as a human. I do the absolute best I can in every moment, learn from my mistakes, trust my intuition, and take things one day at a time; and really, that’s all any of us can do. Here’s a bit more honesty for you: life feels extra hard for me right now. Have you ever had those seasons of life where things just feel extra heavy? I was talking to my dad the other night about all the feelings I’m currently feeling and he said this one thing that stuck with me; “When you were a baby, we were so poor that we didn’t even know where our next meal was coming from. But it all worked out. Everything always works out.” He’s right, of course, so “everything always works out” is my new affirmation for life. Funny how one little anecdote can shift your perspective just enough to get you through. So anyway, just a reminder that behind all of these beautiful photos are real people who struggle with real things. If you don’t have it all together, it’s totally okay. Me either. ❤️ And now back to my regularly scheduled posts. 😂 (Also, this photo of #elsiejaneayres was taken almost exactly one year ago. It’s proof that time flies and that spring really will come again to #buffalony .)
