Hello friends,

Thinking back on this year and being a small business myself, I know the importance of word of mouth….. Discovering new small businesses and supporting my favorites is something I try to do as much as I can. The saying that someone does a happy dance when you make a purchase at a small shop…. Is totally true! I know I make those small little dances every time I see my readers supporting my small space here! Thank you!❤️

This year I am so excited to share my annual shop small blog post where I feature my favorite small businesses plus several new ones I’ve discovered! Be sure to scroll through the list for special deals and codes for shopping TODAY only. 😊
