I love new business in the village, as do you, I’m sure!

Over the summer, both Furrever Friends and the hair and nail salon Front Row Center  joined our lovely little village, where they will hopefully thrive for a long time to come. Our pets need grooming just as much as their owners :)


Furrever Friends is located at 330 First, on the corner of across from The Cobblestone. You can’t miss their bright yellow sign, as well as their “deals” placard on the sidewalk for all to see.

Not only are they a pet boutique, but they also offer grooming. For the number of dogs I see walking around this village, we should keep them busy! Give them a call today!

The other addition to the village is in the old Jo’s Cupcake location, next to Limp Lizard. Front Row Center is an established salon (formerly on Old Liverpool Rd.) that recently moved in to the great space at 141 First St..

In addition to being a great business for that spot, they’ve added handicap access to the building (Yay for them! I personally appreciate that!).

Front Row Center is a full service hair and nail salon and you can call them for an appointment at 457-9929.

This is our gentle giant, Cosmo.  He passed yesterday, somewhat unexpectedly. He was almost 10, and he lived fully up until maybe a week before he passed. He had a good life. Unfortunately, after having a lame front leg for about a week, we discovered that Cosmo had osteosarcoma, which is quite common in Rotties […]

Last night, after the kids and I left the concert a little early, we decided to check out the gorgeous sunset at Onondaga Lake. A good decision.  We weren’t the only ones taking pictures either.  One could not resist getting out the camera. It was incredible. I didn’t have my camera, so unfortunately they are […]

If you’ve been to Onondaga Lake Park, and I know most of you have, you have surely seen the multi-person bikes that are up and down the path. Some people have smiles on their faces, some people can’t stop laughing at themselves as they try to pedal a the same time as their partners, and […]

The week has gotten away from me and I completely forgot to post the pictures from our Monday might trip up to Oswego. My husband spent a lot of time there in his youth with his grandmother, and he is always asking if we can take a ride up to the lake. So we took […]

Although I didn’t go on this trip, because it’s not exactly wheelchair accessible, the husband and our oldest went yesterday to Howe Caverns. The drive was long, but the fun great. They loved it! Despite not realizing ahead of time that it is 50 degrees down below!

Normally when my husband is on vacation, the whole family packs up and heads out somewhere. Despite the chaos of traveling with 3 kids, a wheelchair, and half of our sanity, we still try to get the kids and ourselves out to see something in the world. My husband thankfully has an extra week of […]
