Now more than ever, shopping local is vital to the success of our local economy.

I’ve lived in the Springfield area for nearly twenty years. I grew up in Ozark, attended college at MSU, and have always been very active in the community.

Believe me, I’ve lived in the 417 so long that I’ve literally gone to every coffee shop in search for The Best Hot Cocoa in Springfield, Missouri.

Between my passion for my hometown and supporting local businesses, it only made sense to compile “The Ultimate Springfield Holiday Gift Guide.”
