Summertime. Summertime! It’s our favorite season.
It’s when we are most rocking and the house is always full.
I am continually astounded by the numbers of people that walk through our doors.
I have received so many notes over the years about how LuLu’s is the place of most cherished family memories. It’s one of my favorite things about this whole adventure – knowing that what we do is part of your family’s story.
It’s the ultimate spirit lift knowing that folks leave LuLu’s with full bellies and even more full hearts.
I’m so excited to do it all again this Summer.
Cheers to sunshine and good times all Summer long!
