Shop Local for Valentine’s Day

Whether it be for a loved one, a friend, or a neighbor, a Valentine’s Day treat given and received is always welcome. And, while we at the Dana Green Team never turn down chocolates and flowers, these two mainstays are not the only ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Lafayette is chock full of retailers offering both caloric and non-caloric ways to show you care. The key to my heart? Susie Cakes red velvet cupcakes of course!
