We’ve got Glass!

Flurry of lemonade and life

It’s been a crazy time. Dealing with supply shortages, selling out of everything, navigating a time that we’ve never seen before. And in the midst, we lost my husband’s Dad, my father in law.

Weekly Note

I remember the moment I created Lori’s Original Lemonade. What would happen over the next 4 months to actual physical manifestation of the lemonade would be nothing short of a miracle. Still, I am in awe of the enormous amount of work and everything that had to come together to make the first bottles off […]

16:41:45 You are an Ironman!

”Lori Volk, You are an Ironman!” These were the words that I heard almost 20 minutes to midnight on 11/18/2012 in Tempe Arizona.  I had trained for a solid 3 years with focused training for one year prior to the event. I am compelled to write about this on the anniversary that I accomplished a […]
