Whole Foods Market Addison Sneak Peek

Whole Foods Market continues to grow throughout Texas, Oklahoma and many parts beyond.  I am so happy to be included in their expansion plans for the new Addison, Texas location.  This is akin to a homecoming for me as I lived, shopped and played within just blocks of this newly re-purposed store.  It replaces the Richardson store which was the original North Texas store back in 1986.  As a new wife and mother I was so excited to have a place to shop for fresh, healthy and tasty food choices in my neighborhood.

On Friday, July 12, 2013 the store held a Sneak Peek for Addison and the surrounding communities.  Local vendors were on hand to meet and greet the crowd of hundreds who came to enjoy food, beverage  and whole body samples.  Games and a spirited jazz band added to the excitement of the event.

Here’s a sprinkling of photos of an amazingly fun event!

This is such a fun idea that I have already told the team leaders that I am stealing it.

A passer-by posed me perfectly for this shot.   Then he disappeared into the crowd.  Who says not to talk to strangers?

A moment of levity enjoyed by the Whole Foods Team Members.  Notice the foot action with the hula-hoop and the facial expressions – priceless!

As a Whole Foods Market Local Vendor, I am so honored to be featured with a profile to be displayed in the stores and other venues.  I love what the photographer captured in my garden.  The marketing team worked literary magic from my questionnaire, interview and website.

When you need that extra pair of hands and feet – there’s nothing better than a friend.  I have several who some to help at a moment’s notice.  Sandra McKinney was the first person I meet on the first day of my new job at Xerox back in 1981.  We have traveled life’s journey together ever since.  I couldn’t be where I am without my friends like Sandra.

The best sight of all – to see my Baby Girl, healthy, happy and beautiful.  She came by to wish me well and check out the Rbellah Soaps on the shelf in the Whole Body area.
