OUR HISTORY...

IN 2019, THE SALT & SAND LLC JOURNEY BEGAN. SALT & SAND WAS FORMERLY A BLOG CALLED 'AUDRA'S ADVENTURES'. THIS BLOG WAS DESIGNED TO BE A STORYTELLING OUTLET FOR AUDRA AS SHE WAS TRAVELING THE WORLD AND THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES AT THE TIME.THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF 1 YEAR, AUDRA'S ADVENTURES ATTRACTED MANY READERS AND SUPPORTERS WHO ENJOYED READING HER BLOG POSTS ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES.

IN 2020, AUDRA ATTENDED AN ENTREPRENEURIAL BUSINESS PROGRAM WHERE SHE AND 13 OTHER STUDENTS STARTED UP A RUSTIC MODERN EVENT VENUE IN GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA. IT WAS THERE, AT THE PROGRAM THAT SHE FOUND HER INTEREST IN BUSINESS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND WAS ABLE TO APPLY HER TALENT IN WEBSITE DESIGN.

IN 2021, AUDRA FINALIZED A BUSINESS PLAN FOR A WEBSITE DESIGN AND MARKETING PLATFORM AND PUT AUDRA'S ADVENTURES BLOG TO REST. SHORTLY AFTER CONCLUDING THE BUSINESS PLAN, AUDRA BEGAN THE HUNT FOR A WORTHY BUSINESS PARTER: SOMEONE WHO WAS WILLING TO BE ALL IN, PROVIDE VALUE, AND BE ABLE TO HELP SUSTAIN THE BUSINESS! 

AFTER LOOKING FOR MANY MONTHS, AUDRA STILL DID NOT HAVE A BUSINESS PARTNER. ONE DAY, AUDRA WAS SCROLLING ON INSTAGRAM AND FOUND A BUSINESS OWNER UNDER THE NAME OF SPRUCE + FLORA. SHE CLICKED IT, AND HER FEED AND PAGE WAS COVERED WITH PASSIONATE CONTENT AND CONSISTENCY. HER DEVOTION AND ATTITUDE TOWARD HER OWN BUSINESS ATTRACTED AUDRA TO REACH OUT IMMEDIATELY - COMPLETELY UNAWARE OF HER NAME OR AGE. AUDRA TEXTED THIS MYSTERY GIRL AND TOLD HER ABOUT THE BUSINESS IDEA. SPRUCE + FLORA JUMPED STRAIGHT IN AND WAS SO EXCITED FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY AND THE OFFICIAL PROCESS OF A PARTNERSHIP BEGAN. COMPLETE STRANGERS BECAME PARTNERS AND PARTNERS BECAME BEST FRIENDS. FROM THEN ON, AUDRA + AUNNAH HAVE GROWN THEIR FRIENDSHIP AND THEIR BUSINESS TOGETHER! AUDRA'S ADVENTURES OFFICIALLY BECAME SALT & SAND LLC IN 2021, AND WE CONTINUE TO COLLABORATE DAILY AND ARE THE BEST OF FRIENDS!
