stories

our first drip

benjamin fulfer

our mornings start like most. the intrusive invasion of the morning along. our eyes flutter as we crawl from the warm of our bed. 

our eyes burn and long to return to the adventures our dreams provide.

we wrestle our will to get to the kitchen in order to create the sweet nectar of a cup of coffee.

this tradition gives us life. the slow brew that flushes the aroma of freshly ground coffee bean thoroughly the cool morning air. 

we can almost taste the caffeine as the coffee drips slowly to the perfect rhythm of our morning.

as the brew finished the comfort the taste of this magical drink sweeps over us and we believe that the day can be conquered.

many times this tradition will be skipped due to a night that lasted a little too long the day before, or a few more precious minutes in the unconscious.  

but the days we get this tradition are treasures.

we take in each sweet note of our coffee and each beautiful drip in our mugs. there is almost a serenity to the process.

the weight.

the grind.

the brew.

the consumption.

coffee is a daily mediation and a place of calm. must like a delightful dinner with friends or a road trip to a new place, it gives us life.

we would like to share our tradition with you. 

that is why we offer our favorite, Dr. Bean's Coffee and Tea Emporium, on our site. we offer the freshest beans, roasted on thursdays and shipped on mondays.

our hope is that you too join us in our morning tradition. 

 

honesty

honesty is a loss art. well now i think about it, might not art isn't the right word. but, just a lost dimension of life. too often people make excuses of the "why" or "how" or "what" that has stopped them from what they believe to be success.

the only reason i feel confident in saying this is because I do this all too frequently. I build excuse on top of excuse like a house of cards. one change in the wind and every lie tumbles down. 

over the last few month bozwell+lily has become a burden. a good burden. a scary burden. but a burden all the same. and the weight of this burden is heavy on my heart.

i think many times what i look for is the grand. the big. the overwhelming.

things that will become a quick, tangible success.

money.

support.

recognition.

i want all of those things, and i want them to happen fast.

but slowing down and being present for the process is much more rewarding than the destination.

it is also why i started this business. I have always wanted to do something out of love. not something that would be an unwanted burden.

so today i refocus

today I ignore the why, how + what that is holding me back,

but the why, how + whatthat drives my journey.

presenting | Bozwell + Lily /// a memphis celebration

we started bozwell + lily as an adventure. as a risk. as something that would resonate with our home — memphis. to stir emotions of past, present and future. we have taken our passion for this city to create something that we believe can be hard yet beautiful. 

"anywhere the struggle is great, the level of ingenuity and inventiveness is high." - Eleni Zaude Gabre-Madhin 

on april, 23rd from 6p-10p we are throwing a special event at loflin yard in downtown memphis.

it is an introduction of sorts (a big ole embrace). it is our way of saying hello and telling you a bit about ourselves. it is also a party. we are bringing musicians from right here in memphis and all the way from atlanta to celebrate our little journey. let's swap stories. in-real-life instead of digitally.

 

let's use this as an opportunity to bring our community closer together. we have brand new products in tow that we hope will spark conversation – ones for you to touch, feel, and hold. and with any great get together, we want to create the best experience possible.

join us for us to introduce ourselves to you, our community... our home. hope to see y'all there.

our pop up shop will be live from 12pm-6pm

then we are gonna boogie from 6pm-10pm with musical guests including

Grace Askew /// The Wealthy West /// Matthew Wright

he spoke of being on mountain tops.

he spoke about having a dream, where all americans are viewed the same.

he was passionate.

he was unafraid.

his words resounded throughout time. 

and today.. this day... is our day to celebrate, honor and carry on his work for a brighter and equal america.
