Bubbles and Small Biz

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Are we really almost ready to relax over some turkey? I have a short family trip down to the Keys to recap, but first I wanted to share scenes from last weekend. 

It was time to celebrate the birthday girl who is "framily" over outdoor bubbles and strolling local shops and restaurants. It's SO important to support local businesses now more than ever! One of our good friends is a shop owner in the area we explored, and knows the lay of the land and has personal relationships with the real people we were supporting. It was SO nice to get dressed up for what felt like the first time in forever (imagine Princess Anna singing), put on makeup and have my daughter say on my way out the door "Mommy you have pretty eyes again". Out of the mouths of babes I tell ya....

The cutest flower cart outside of the French Bakery where we stopped for bubbles, and sat outside on their patio for some good ol' fashioned people watching. The owner said her husband made it for her, and it was the perfect touch for a small biz. If you're in the Central Florida area, check her out on Instagram here.
