But I have a suggestion for one that is EASY to do, and will make a big difference in the daily lives of all of us here in Holly Springs.

Tim Forrest’s interview was recorded in July, and th...

This week, we’ll hear from one of my very favorite people: Wendy Parker. You’ll know her from her adorable shop called Gifted Boutique & Wrappery that closed recently. Wendy was so generous with me, with her time and her honesty and candor about what prompted her to close her shop and pivot to what she’s doing now. Spoiler alert: don’t feel bad for Wendy. I know I did when I first heard about her plans for closing. But she’s up...
