Our friend Josh (Ben’s college roommate and 1/3rd partner in the Mercantile whom y’all have gotten to know on Home Town) has invested so much of himself in downtown Laurel and today we got to enjoy the fruits of it. I can’t believe we have a place like The Pearl Diner for lunch with the best mac and cheese on the planet!
And I can’t believe there is a toy store and a men’s store right across the street from us while we eat. Tomorrow, we’ll have another celebration eating at the next new eatery in town. What a time to be a Laurelite!
