Selma’s 1st birthday was the perfect occasion for me to treat myself, after missing this breakfast goodness for many, many months. (Naturally, I brought my trusty Nikon along.) It was a sweet reunion, and I was delighted to see so many of my favorite familiar faces. I was also amazed by how many new people have jumped in to keep Selma strong and vibrant. The house was packed. I believe it was a record-breaking week of — wait for it… — 135 guests!

If you haven’t yet experienced Friday Morning @ Selma, you’re missing out on a warm and inviting, uniquely homegrown, real-deal Ann Arbor experience. Everyone is welcome! Hopefully, we’ll see you there one Friday morning very soon.

I was so happy to get an invitation to come to SELMA. March 5th was my first one and i subsequently came Thursday night on the 11th to help prep. What you have going on is so cool. Creating community is just what we need right now what with such hard economic times and difficulties all over. We need things like SELMA to let us all know that things will be OK, and there are people who care about the future – you are the phoenix. I came with my neighbors from what we call the UPPER lowertown Heights. The three of us see Breakfast at SELMA as a model for what we want to do in our neighborhood. Excellent work, see ya on Thursday for prep. =)
