Eat Local

La Paz

I absolutely love the California Quesadilla at La Paz. I order it extra crispy. Its a staple! Also, Jimmy Tracy cooks Wednesday-night-pickup dinner for Saint Luke’s church, and it’s always delicious and perfect for mid week!

Al Fresco at Vino

You can’t beat dining al fresco at Vino! When the weather is nice, it’s fun to see neighbors and friends walking by.

Fellowship in Community

Putting Family First

The chamber does a great job of hosting the Easter Egg Roll every year. It’s so fun to see children’s excitement when they see the Easter Bunny. I’ve been lucky enough to be the Master of Ceremony the last few years! The Halloween Parade is also now such a tradition, too! I love seeing friends in such a creative venue. Families will always enjoy being together at the events this city hosts.

Sentimental Spots

Brookwood Forest Elementary School

I recently visited Brookwood Forest Elementary–a place I haven’t been back to since I graduated in the 70s! I was totally amazed at the staff, polite children and wonderful renovations.

Being in Business in Mountain Brook

Snoozy’s Kids

This August, Snoozy’s Kids turns 35! Seeing all our neighbors and friends makes it a happy place. We now have second-generation shoppers who can reminisce about toys and experiences they had with us when they were young! Working with my friends and my daughter, Lillian, makes it a joy to come to work every day.
