If you’re looking for a great destination to get away from all the hustle and bustle of suburbia life, grab the girls and head to Fredericksburg, Texas. You can shop, sip on wine, and take in the beautiful Texas sunsets and rolling hills. Planning a big graduation party? Wedding? Prom bash? Market Street in Frisco offers an excellent floral department that will help you design floral bouquets, arrange deliveries, and give quality tips to maintain your flowers upon arrival. You can see samples of their floral arrangements on our cover as well as in the main feature, "Movers and Shakers." Remember that we women need to stick together. We should be lifting each other
