shades cafe.

it breaks my heart to hear that amazing local businesses are shutting their doors.
small towns can be tough!
one of my favorite places, Shades Cafe, is closing it's little log cabin this month.
when i stopped in the other day, i soaked in the sun from my favorite sunny seat in all of town.
the cabin may be tiny, but Shades adds so much character to jackson.
i urge all of you locals to stop by for one last eggs benedict or mocha latte.
i'll sure miss stopping there for a bite to eat before hitting the river in the summers.
you can read more about it here.

it's that time of year.

the temps this last week have been brutal.
i'm talking negative digits that i sometimes find hard to fathom.
my parents live in florida where it can be a full 100 degrees warmer than their poor daughter.
seriously, how do i live here?
truth be told it isn't always this cold....just a few weeks a winter but still tough.
i know i wouldn't be able to survive (literally) without my array of beanies.
thankfully there are so many options out there and weeks like this remind me that you can never have enough.
and the bigger the pom the better in my book.
so my friends, stock up!

a pop-up shop.

{get a colorful set of bike glasses}
{the cutest cookie cutters ever!}
{what's xmas without poppers?}
{maybe not the safest combo, but great on their own}

a christmas pop-up shop full of goods just for stocking stuffers!
