After 2 weeks out of town we knew we’d be visiting our favorite CFA sometime last week. Originally we planned to go on Thursday when they were hosting a fundraising night for Lilyfield -we’d be helping give a little cash to a good organization and getting some yummy food.
But, Tuesday we saw a Facebook post about it being Family Fun Night and getting to plant a flower. That was one of our favorite visits last year, we enjoyed the flower all summer. So, we switched up our plans and went Tuesday. It was great!
J had a wonderful time with the activity. She was able to decorate the pot, choose a flower, plant it and visit with her friends (the CFA employees while doing it).
It’s hard to describe how good it felt to walk in and have several employees smile at us, greet us by name, and ask about our trip. It really makes Edmond feel like home to have these relationships. One friend (employee) even took time to listen to our recent gluten situation and share a bit about her own experience and gave us some tips about what to order at CFA -so cool!
As it ended up I was there Thursday as well, volunteering with Lilyfield. It was fun – I was able to greet people, refill drinks, and I even got a tour of the kitchen. We knew J would be jealous, so we just told her I was volunteering with Lilyfield, but never filled her in on what exactly that meant. Someday she’ll be big enough to do all that too 🙂
We love Chick-fil-A, and this store in particular has been quite a blessing to us. When we visit we get fresh food, healthy choices, and fun conversation. It is like feeding our spirits as well as our bodies each time we go.
