Politics & Play in Florida's Capitol- a la BB. #iHeartTally

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

No se ustedes, pero are y'all already running ragged? Or maybe supercharged?  How about getting dizzy from the pendulum swing entre los dos? 2016 and the S Sisters. Wow and woah. This was just one day in the states captol.




BB was up at 7 am; you KNOW it’s important for that to happen!

Tallahassee is Florida’s state capitol, and it has a feeling all its’ own. A place for laws, but also for laughter and lovely loitering amongst the history surrounding it.

Finally the #WeAreFlorida group, over 500 strong rallied at the New Capitol to state their case.

How wonderful to live in a country where we can do this peacefully. Even more wonderful when it’s done in such a beautiful setting.

Pero after that rally, BB needed to relax- and she knew exactly where she needed to go inTally to do just that. Right in the middle of the ciudad. Bella Lake Ella. Where ducks and decompression rule.

While there, my friend Maria Ortiz, founder/editor of Cultura Latina Magazine, introduced me to a local secret- a secret that’s been happening every Wednesday for the last 12 years, rain or shine.

Organized by Jennifer Taylor, Ph.D., Coordinator of the statewide Small Farm Program of FAMU, these local farmers share their best with Tallahassee.  Fresh from their farms, beehives, gardens, this group is friendly, fun, and very knowledgeable on their wares,wears, and whereabouts. Their products, handmade apparel,farm lore and histories were shared with candor, y Babushka learned and laughed mucho during my short time with them.

Pero, it was getting late, BB had started early, and it was time to go back home to Sweetie.  Ahora, y'all who know Babushka knows this isn't the typical day, this getting up early, rallying, health foods. So, where is the "a la BB" part del titulo?
