As a small business, this blog post means a lot to me.

I am so, so, so incredibly thankful for everyone who has supported our business during this trying time. The support has come in many ways and all are equally as appreciated. Simply sharing a post on Instagram, ordering a bouquet, purchasing an arrangement, sending a sweet message to check in on me. We wouldn’t be here without you. Supporting local in Ottawa right now is necessary for the survival of many shops and businesses.

I posted a few stories earlier this week on Instagram about supporting local and you guys were AMAZING. I looked through every recommendation and went down the rabbit hole of finding more local gems that I am so excited to check out.

I have tried to break them down into categories so that you all can go and try out some new local places!
