Good Morning!! 3 years ago a girl walked into the grill for a job, Shawn, my business partner at the time hired her. Her name has been spoken from my lips a million times..... Crimson. As a boss we are not to get attached but I have broken the rule and I am just that, attached. Over the 3 years she has been with me we have laughed together, cried together, shouted at each other. She keeps me on track and knows exactly how crazy I am. She loves my boys and the feeling is mutual. I went through 9 months of pregnancy with her and she honored Shelby and I to be Godparents to our precious Aiden. She has grown and changed so much over time. She has amazing self confidence and her heart has changed to have a relationship with our heavenly father, Im proud. Today is her wedding day..... she is marrying an amazing man. He has been a regualr at the CIG for along time. He has a kindness and sweetness about him that instantly makes you love him. He comes from an amazing christian family, that will love my precious godson with all their heart. I am so honored to be on this journey with her, I know the Lord has an amazing plan for this sweet couple. Today, as I sit and watch them pledge their love to each other, I know their will be tears from my eyes, because she has come so far from the girl that walked into my heart 3 years ago. Crimson and Gaines, I am honored to be apart of this new beginning, thank you for allowing me too. Happy Thursday yall..... I believe its a beautiful day for a wedding. Thank you Lord for this precious family!!!
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
