~closed~ GIVEAWAY + NEW BLOG (👆 link in bio) @eclecticblooms is a one of a kind florist based in Annapolis
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here is a snippet of the interview on my blog:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔳Me: So what is the dream? What is the vision for Eclectic Blooms?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔲Kira: I’d love to be doing more editorial work. Designing for magazines, movies, shows, artists, etc. I’d also love to evolve the philanthropic side of the business. As I mentioned, community is very important to me. My background is in social work and I’ve grown up being an active part in my community. Women/girl Empowerment is very near and dear to me, so I’d love to mentor and train young women within my community about the art of Floral Design. I look forward to connecting, empowering and growing.
_________________________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cheers to you, Kira! We are so happy you took the jump and became a business we all love. You offer something once considered ‘traditional’ in a very magical, unique way, unlike any florist around. YOU are another reason why Annapolis is a great place to call HOME.

The other night I strolled around Downtown Annapolis with my son. Walking with no place in mind, enjoying the change in scenery after the errands were done. A million times through the years we’ve seen this house on the corner of Maryland and Prince George but for some reason this day it stood out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think it’s because we were purposely going slow, purposefully wandering with no destination: a mindful walk. I wasn’t running through my to-do list or hurrying the child along; if it took all night to walk back to the car that was going to be ok with me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He loved the way the bricks were ‘glowing’ and I loved the contrast of that to the blue blue sky, we talked about it for a few minutes 🌎 days later, I still recall this memory and he does too. And it’s a ‘put a smile on your face’ kinda memory. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, I’m going to try another mindful walk but around my own neighborhood and see what beauty I can discover that’s been hiding in plain sight. I hope you’ll find a moment to do it too 🤗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

~closed~ GIVEAWAY + NEW BLOG (👆 link in bio) @jami_creates is a local digital artist and craft maker - another successful business that launched out of quarantine 💥

To know her is to love her, here is a snippet of the interview on my blog:

🔳Me: What is your favorite item you sell and why?

🔲Jami: My just winging it butterfly sticker. That is basically my business motto – I swear I’m just making it up as I go. But also the reference for the butterfly was a picture I took when my fiance and I went to the museums in DC. It was such a fun day and it’s cool that I could turn that picture from that memory into something other people get excited to purchase.

Cheers to you, Jami! We are so happy you took the jump and became a business we all love. You take me to a me today a happy place, make me feel like a friend and you are another reason why Crownsville is a great place to call HOME.

Sparks, MD 📍I got to explore this area a bit recently and a proper wander of this community wouldn’t be complete without a visit to @sparksfillingstation ☕️

The lady who became my BFF waiting in line told me how the coffee here ‘is polarizing: either you want to come here everyday or you don’t like it at all (but that means you don’t like coffee)’ I lurrrrrrrrved it 🤤

Have you been!? I really know nothing about the place but it clearly has history and a story to tell ✍️👇

Thanks @my_uncoiled_life for the recommendation 😻

Scale of 1️⃣ to 🔟 how lovely is this portrait made by @attackofthe50footwoman ? This particular house hunting journey was very fun and little Oscar was, dare I say, the star of it 💛

congrats to my friends who bought and sold on the same day like champions 🏡

&&&& thank you Sam for the perfect gift - friends, go support our local makers!

I think this might be the last ice cream stop of Summer 😭 hah who am I kidding? No it’s not 🍦 I do not say this lightly: this is the best soft serve ice cream I’ve ever had 🥁 Jimmie Cone in Damascus. Toppings were not needed, the ice cream was good just by itself. I’m a new faithful follower of the Jimmie Cone Experience (anyone like a little pun on their Wednesday?)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your recommendations come in clutch, this was one of them- thank you @kjsteacy ! It was a place I’d driven by and never noticed, but it is a classic spot for so many people. This is an original glass block pony wall to order, fluorescent lighting, sitting in the bed of a pickup truck kind of place and I’m here for it 👏

‘This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place something that you have left behind...let it be something good.’

Each time we park in this garage my daughter begs to go to the top, ‘pleaaaaaaaaaaase can we park way up so high!?’ And we never do. But this day we did and it ended up being the favorite part of the day for us all. This garage gave me a new vantage point of a city I’ve grown to love so much 🌞 So do like the kids do and take an extra 15 minutes to go way up so high.
