Hey, Paula Deen!

Honestly, I can’t think of a single thing that Azure Rountree does that I am not totally obsessed with. Not. A. One. I fell in love with this long time friend & mother of four’s cake pops at the Mainstreet Statesboro Farmer’s Market last year, so it’s no surprise her pralines are over-the-moon terrific too. And it’s really understandable that everyone loves them. But here I am, completely floored that Paula Deen’s Savannah shop is selling them for a charitable contribution to the tune of nearly $5,000 to Autism Research. That’s a lot of money for a sweet praline to raise.

I am constantly in love with the stories of the folks who deliver our flowers. It’s true: you never know just who is going to deliver your posies! So beginning of story to the end and every-little-love-filled second in the middle James Rountree’s delivery to Paula Deen has moved right up to the tippity-toppiest of my favorite flower delivery list!
