Robin and I formed a business called Alpenglow Apparel. I do not attribute its formation to the loss of that cashiering job, all praise goes to Robin for his level-headedness during this tough time and thinking on his feet how to best manage our dwindling resources.
Alpenglow is a German word meaning the phenomena of light refracting off snowy mountain-tops just before sunrise. A rosy glow results- and it's truly breathtaking. This is a scene we've become accustomed to in the beautiful Missoula, Montana valley.
The company is an LLC and we will be working exclusively with organic cotton and screenprinting with eco-inks. The website is here: www.AlpenglowApparel.com
Hopefully this venture will be enough for us to live off of for now and hopefully it will thrive in the future. It requires our combined 200% effort in every department and since its incorporation we've been met with some success.
I embark on another amazing year, grateful for every day I've been given. Trying to make the most of it.
