Emma Chapman Flora and Fern in Springfield MO Flora and Fern  Flora and Fern in Springfield MOOur hometown, Springfield, MO, is a big small-town kind of place. Which feels like the perfect size for me. But, even though I kind of like having my places and routines, and feeling like it’s SUPER easy to get around, I still get really excited when I find new cute places. So I was stoked when my (photographer) friend Janae told me we should go check out Flora and Fern—so cute! If you’re a local, you gotta go check it out, especially if you are a plant lady. 🙂

Love discovering “new” places, even if it’s in my city.

Take it away, Sister!

Finding new placesYeah, Sis… I hear you! Ever since we moved, we’ve been trying to keep up the habit of trying at least one new spot where we’ve never been each weekend. It’s been the BEST thing for getting to know our new city! 

We’ve tried fancy places, divey places and everything in between. We even have a little book that we keep notes in when we really love or dislike a place we try. It’s so fun! Our little hobby!
