Glenn's First Shopping experience had to be at Mommy's Favorite store!
Hello From My "Nest"! 5 weeks have gone by since Mr. Glenn Kelly Wood gave me life...
I have enjoyed getting to know my son, memorizing his sounds and moves. Each morning has been another adventure for the three of us, a whole new world! A beautiful world at that!
With that said, there has been not-so-good moments. Worrying all the time, crying at the drop of a hat like most new moms and of course the constant thought that I am not doing things right! So My dear husband said "enough of these walls today! We are packing Glenn up and heading north!"
What that means is that we are going to my "feel good place"!
That place is "Under the Sun", a very eclectic, whimsical, delicious shop and Organic bistro located in Bonners Ferry ID
Owned and operated by mom shelly Yount and three daughters, Kynsie, Kendall & Kaylan. Along with the help of long time FJ shopper Robin! Under the Sun is a treat for all the senses, you enter a beautiful European style shop that was once the local Hardware store (back in the day). In fact a lot remains from the original integrity of the building. Old gliding latter and all! as you enter you are welcomed with a smile from one of the many ladies running the shop at once. The Bistro has incredible organic food and coffee that leaves you wanting more. The coffee is Red Rooster, roasted by Shellys' husband, it too is organic and best of all locally made!
Whenever I am here I usually find some sort of treasure for my home, a unique card, a package of Red Rooster Coffee, always a perfect gift for a friend, and a full tummy!
Nathan enjoyed Chocolate Gelato and I had a "build yourself panini". I Love that you can eat in such a fun atmosphere and shop while you dine!
I left Under the Sun feeling renewed!
If you are attending the Labor day Funky Junk Show make some time in your weekend to take the quick half hour trip to bonners Ferry to treat yourself (but not on Sunday, they are closed and most likely will be found scooping up treasure at FJ!).
Here is a full article nicely done by Dave Gunter (you may know him as half our amazing Bridges Home duo playing sundays at FJ)
