As we approach Valentine’s Day, it’s important to take a moment to think about all the industrious small business owners who make these love-filled holidays happen for everyone. Everything from a box of chocolates to a bottle of wine to candles softly lit on the table may have come from a small local business owner, working hard to get you all you need to show the love this February.

Vanessa of San Francisco’s Polk Street Florist is a shining example of this. A beloved staple of her community, she takes incredible joy in sharing her passion for flowers with her customers and helping them find just the right way arrangements to communicate their feelings.

Check out her beautiful story on Medium, and this Valentine’s Day, be reminded that behind every beautiful bouquet there’s someone like Vanessa with an equally beautiful story to share.
