WHAT WE DID: APRIL 3RD 2017

What We Did is our weekly "slice of life" photo post featuring images that have been tagged with #WDDI in the past week on Instagram. 

Below are 18 photos from the past seven days of life in Denton, TX including opening day at the Denton Community Market, The DIME Store's 4th birthday party, some food-centric celebrations, and a mean-lookin' cat. Also included are photos from the photo booth we helped put together at The DIME Store's birthday celebration featuring a backdrop hand-painted by Shawna Smyth. 

If you'd like to be included in What We Did, tag your Denton images with #WDDI on Instagram, and check back here next Monday. Search the hashtag #WDDI and check out all of the other photos that we were unable to include this week. Click the images below to be led back to the photographer's Instagram page where you can follow them and then go comment on a photo from 113 weeks ago. 

P.S. Ya know those three posts we ran on Saturday that got a few people upset (i.e. Morrison's Corn-Kits turning into a vape store)? Yeah, those were all April Fool's pranks. So, you can go ahead and put down your pitchforks and rest easy. Spiral Diner will serve delicious vegan fare. Morrison's Corn-Kits will continue to produce corn bread packets (and more). And LSA will continue to be loud (but not THAT loud).

This weekend was the opening of the @DentonMarket and it was rightfully VERY well attended. Not only was there the requisite food and goods sellers, but there was also a blacksmith demonstration and plenty of bluebonnets. Here's a great photo of the @jubileefarmdenton booth from @jadewinterdays. We're already excited for next Saturday!
