Day 17 Find a local dessert shop. Eat dessert for dinner.
Sweet Swirling Onion Rings! We loved this day! The task was simple. Stimulate the local economy and nosh on some scrumptious desserts for dinner.
We went to Sweet by Holly, which happens to be one of our FAVORITE Jacksonville hot spots. Miss Holly is an extraordinary woman and one of my heroes. She’s won ‘Cupcake Wars’…TWICE! Let me tell you: The woman knows cupcakes.
And, I mean, come on…anyone who spends her life making the world a happier place by sharing the joy of a cupcake has got to be pretty special. Plus, not only does she make little beauties like these:
She also has a big, generous heart. My dear friend’s son, Truxton, is one of Holly’s buddies. Each time she’s there when they visit, Holly makes this young one feel like a million bucks.
Obviously, ‘Sweet’ was the place to be tonight. Ironically, it became a little bitter-sweet considering the only two places available for this kind of fun is in Neverland and Orlando. It’s become an institution in our home and we are so grateful for the fun…compliments of Holly and her staff, of course!
