Vanilla BlueWM

Vanilla Blue Frozen Yogurt and Bake Shop. 3246 Atlanta Road, Suite D.
Find them on Facebook
Opened January 2015.
From their website:

Vanilla Blue Frozen Yogurt & Bake Shop carries more than most dessert spots. Since its opening, the shop has tempted palates with treats of varied tastes and temperatures, from frosting-topped cakes, cupcakes, and other baked goods, to cherry-topped frozen yogurt. Smoothies manage to appeal to both the sweet tooth and the calorie counter at the same time, while those who don’t fancy sugar can opt instead for a potent cup of coffee, or a healthy but totally boring cup of water.

A New Orleans girl turned Georgia peach and stay at home mom to 2 daughters. Before taking the leap into full time mothering, I worked at at an Atlanta-based advertising agency. I have lived in Smyrna for almost 10 years and am still not sure how I managed to find a job more chaotic and unpredictable than advertising.
