Each week as I sit down to prepare our weekend update I get a little more excited about all the great things that are happening here in our community. Every week there is a little more to add to our update, and every week I feel like Ramona is becoming more and more a destination for people to come to. We have some really great stuff going on! So without further ado, here is what is happening in our town this weekend!

The weather is going to be great this weekend in Ramona, so go out and enjoy our town! Honestly, there doesn’t have to be an event or something special going on for you to take a trip around town and go to new places that you have never been to before. Take your kids over to the Antique Mall next to Mi Casa Reveles and treat them to some candy from the candy shop inside, the grab lunch next door afterward. Or you could stop in Fashionably Late Boutique and see all the great things that they have in their store and grab a cookie or ten from The Cookie Cottage when you are done. (If you do grab ten, feel free to save a few for me, wink wink!) The moral of the story is, if you don’t support your local businesses then who will? It is up to each and every one of us to keep our community great. We are already doing it, let’s keep it up! #shoplocal #staylocal #spreadthelove #lesshustlemoreheart
Also, if you or someone you know is looking to make a move whether it be selling a home or buying one I hope that you will think of me. I would love to sit down and chat with you and let you know what I can do for you!
Thank you, for supporting our community and making it a great place to be! Also, have a great three day weekend!
