One of the main reasons for starting my blog was to get to know the wonderful community of creatives and local businesses that make Atlanta and the South so special which is why the most important gift guide I’m promoting this year is dedicated to the Local flair of the South and Atlanta! Supporting small business is such a huge deal to me because I believe in the community of small businesses that keep innovating and creating to their heart’s content.
Thanks to my community on Instagram, some of this content was generated from them while some were products and people that I love and believe in as well.
