• Weekend Update

    This was the first weekend of the season that felt like fall, and it was so lovely. I poured beer at Oktoberfest downtown Friday night, delivered two wedding orders on Saturday, stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies at my favorite family-owned produce stand, enjoyed a fun night with friends at Grove Roots Brewing, and checked

  • Sunday Morning At The Plant Sale

    Yesterday morning, C and I headed to Bok Tower Gardens for their annual Boktoberfest plant sale. We were on a mission to scope out nurseries for the flower shop, and find new varieties of orchids and air plants to add to our retail inventory. It was a beautiful day at one of my very favorite places.

  • Weekend Throwback

    Last Thursday, this giant Cuban sammich and I enjoyed a rare proper lunch break on the patio of my favorite coffee shop, under the shade of an umbrella while a breeze blew, and it was perfect. {There was also a fresh chocolate chip cookie hiding in that brown bag, so consider the sundae of sunshine and

While he busied himself blasting the mildew from our stucco, I threw on my old Sunday standbys headed out for some errands and shopping. My spring

  • take me back…

    Last Saturday, C and I packed a little suitcase and snuck away after work for a mini-break at our favorite spot on the Gulf coast. It’s really kind of ridiculous that we live smack in the middle of two beautiful coastlines, and never make it to the beach… We’ve got the whole “work hard” thing

  • weekend update: today we are thankful.

    It started out as a rainy weekend. Typical for Florida, and nothing to be worried about. At first. We worked for a few hours at the shop Saturday morning, then I spent the afternoon drinking wine on my couch and watching an all-day marathon of Gossip Girl on Netflix. In the name of research. Those

        Some on-the-go snaps from this weekend and the last. Some work, and some play. Our crepe myrtles are blooming, I’ve stocked up my summer reading selection, and we’re spending as much time in the sunshine as we can. Although, sunshine has been sparse recently. Summer weekends are in full swing!
