This post is part of a series about people from whom I am learning:
My friend Shannon Glass doesn’t mess around. When she works, when she plays, when she joshes around, she’s all in. She takes things seriously but she sees the joy in the absurd. She’s got a great eye — she’s designed parties, plates, homes, gifts, and more with an impeccable style that I admire. Get her a recipe and she makes it sing. Get her some fabric and she teaches it manners. If she wants to make something, she learns, and then she makes it. Just like that. Then she adds the winning detail that elevates the whole thing. Shannon’s also showing me what it’s like to be firm in convictions, to take no shit, to be strong without stepping on people to show how strong I am. I can’t hardly wait to be old friends with Shannon.
