I hope everyone is having a good 2022 so far. As the world continues to deliver the wildest ride ever, we are holding steady keeping LuLu’s in “ship shape” and the very best place to take a little break. 
 
Speaking of breaks, the Gulf Shores restaurant is closed during January for annual renovations and updates. I can’t wait to see the progress made there!  Destin will close for only a couple of days this month, so stay tuned to social media for when that happens. Our North Myrtle Beach location, because she is so shiny and sparkling new, will stay open through the duration of our winter season. 
 
I have been taking some time to relax after a whirlwind of holiday cheer. This is a great time to slow down and remember to enjoy nature – wherever you are. For me it’s an appreciation for  blue skies and beautiful sunsets! 
 
Wishing you all peace, health, and blessings in this new year and season!
