So close but feels like a different state

I’m helping out a friend of mine in a neighboring town who needed someone to cover his store for the week so I said sure why not. I always like a change of scenery but not on a permanent basis. It’s a quaint little city with a lot of different personalities. There are mom and pop stores that are trying to make a go of their business but like everyone else it is a struggle. I hate seeing people struggle.

Tonight my friend is having a wine tasting event in hopes of bringing in new customers. The whole city itself is trying to turn things around and I hope it does.

It seems like the city(in some parts)is flourishing but in other parts it is like the last of a dying breed. It saddens me.

The florist next door is playing classical music outside, the streets are lined with beautiful flowers, and the canal is sparkling with boats passing by. The bakery adjacent to the florist has such an aroma coming from it that it’s making my mouth water.

I guess my point of this blog is give the small guys a shot. Buy local and save the dying breed.

This is me. I'm a mom, a sister, a daughter, and friend. At times, and MOST of the time I live an ordinary life lol. I have two amazing teenage boys that I refer to ask my rocks. They are definitely as solid as they come and I am so grateful and blessed to have them in my life. I’m a teacher’s assistant and absolutely positively LOVE my job. Omg there is no greater pleasure in life then getting paid to do what you love to do. I’m not perfect nor is my life, but I try every day to get it right. This is my story and my journey. I hope you find some of my posts helpful, inspiring, useful, and not too boring lol. Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear some of your comments and questions if you have any to share.
