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. I'm still learning how to blog and figure out what kind of audience I'm trying to appeal to but I find myself randomly posting about anything and everything, which is okay I guess. I love being a homebody. I swear there's no greater peace then enjoying your home and its surroundings which is why blogging is ideal for someone like me because it makes me realize there is a whole big world out there to explore. I hope you enjoy my site and if there's anything you'd like to comment on, feel free to hit me up.
