Best friends and business partners Anna Boyer and Kate Wyman have a lot in common — including one set of grandparents! This sweetly Southern pair of first cousins opened their adorable print shop, Grove Street Press, in the warehouse district of New Orleans three years ago. But their friendship spans a lifetime: “I’m pretty sure I went to the hospital the day Anna was born,” laughs Kate. Since then the two have grown into true Southern ladies, and now spend their days together creating custom prints and cards that are delightfully preppy (if this card doesn’t give you a chuckle, you might as well have your Town & Country subscription revoked.) We spent an afternoon strolling the streets of the Big Easy with Anna and Kate to find out what makes their friendship tick, what to order at the Columns Hotel (an Old-Fashioned), and how they balance work and friendship with that certain “joie de vivre”.
