Let's be real. Online shopping can be both a blessing and a curse. The convenience of shopping from your computer or phone is hard to beat, but the wonder you experience when physically entering a shop filled with colorful lights, for example, can be transformative. I so admire those stalwart brick & mortar business owners who have somehow, through a global pandemic, managed to keep the lights on. Let's continue to support our brick & mortar businesses whenever possible as we make the best of both digital and physical worlds.
