Our Visit to Rifle Paper Co + The Coop

This past weekend, we drove to Orlando with my in-laws to attend a sweet family baby shower. Half of Gabriel's family lives in Orlando and we love making trips to visit. I should also mention that 

Gari

and

Cortez

 got to tag along - they are destined soul mates!

Following the baby shower, we headed to Winter Park to visit 

Rifle Paper Co

. and

The Coop

. If you weren't aware, I am a HUGE fan of Rifle Paper. I love 

Anna Bond's

 small business story and her lovely illustrations. The shop was even better than I had imagined. It was set up in two large, very organic rooms filled with open shelving, rustic planked floor and tons of illustrations. That day, they were hosting a sidewalk sale AND to put even more icing on the already iced cake, my sweet mom-in-love purchased a little

surprise

 for me!

After the shower we decided to walk over to The Coop, a true southern affair, with our cousin who happens to be a local Orlando

blogger

/SAHM. It was great getting to spend time with her and experience such a wonderful gem. The Coop is a deep rooted southern restaurant with a modern twist. They are known for their delicious fried chicken, authentic side dishes and the best bread pudding you'll ever eat! If you are in Winter Park, Florida, I definitely recommend checking these spots out.

Happy Thursday!
