Matt, a self-proclaimed jack-of-all-trades, owns and runs I'm Your Guy Handyman alongside his stepfather, Billy. The two believe that no job is too small, taking on projects that run the gamut from snow removal to computer repair and from installing holiday decorations to changing out-of-reach light bulbs.
Third-generation cleaners Kit and Casey continue a more than 60-year-old family legacy as they meticulously clean clothes and fabrics both large and small. Using environmentally friendly solvents, each item is pre-treated for spots and laundered according to the ironclad edicts of its tag. Shirts are treated with a special enzyme detergent that eats away at body odor and foot stains, whereas an anti-sugaring system protects wedding gowns from beer, champagne, food, and mud-wrestling stains. Casey also takes special care with suede and leather garments, cleaning leather jackets herself. Finished items can be put through a professional presser and are then whisked away to customers via free delivery.
All plants are gathered from native Missouri fauna that have consented to have their clippings or seeds donated to science, and are grown in high-quality potting soil that does not contain peat moss, which can make it more difficult for plants to adapt to their new homes. For shipped orders, Missouri Wildflowers Nursery guarantees that your plants or seeds will arrive in good condition, and that all species are true to their name and professed veganism.
Drawing on a shared passion of photographing their own children, friends Meagan Dalton and Laura Harmon joined forces in 2007 and founded True Life Images. What began as a home-photography business quickly expanded, and in 2008 they moved into their full-service studio, where they cull palpable evidence of smiling families, love-struck couples, and cuddly babies in vivid light and with flattering poise. The photogs also haul their equipment and talent to homes, parks, and wedding-invitation font samplings to document subjects posing in the comfort of their own environments or the beauty of a natural setting. With a secure online viewing gallery, subjects can peruse their portraits without fear of paper cuts.
