A few weeks ago our entire family got treated to a special premiere screening of the new Thomas the train film. Thomas and Friends. Big World! Big Adventures! The entire family was excited. I however had my doubts feeling hesitant about going to the movies with a 6, 4 and 1 year old… (Let’s just say the previous experience was less than desirable).

It was fun, amazing and EXTREMELY hard work… That’s probably where my deep appreciation, love and support for shopping local and buying small grew. Another mama that…
