Posted by FlorenceMom.com on Thursday, June 25, 2020, In : For Moms 
Our featured business is Rachael Lavelle of Color Street! Rachael lives in Florence, SC and is a wonderful mother of two kids. Rachael and I met at an event planned by a moms' group and we've continued to keep in touch. I admire her knack for crafts and natural leadership skills.

We meet new people throughout our lifetime and some may only stay as acquaintances while others become an instant close connection. I find that having that great, trustworthy friend in this town takes effort and giving others a chance is not easy, but something's gotta give. It is, as we all know, like dating.


And what better way to go on a date or get to know your friend than doing a creative exercise together over a glass of wine? My favorite choice: going to a Paint & Sip in downtown Floren...

Taking it Easy with a Paint Nite in Florence, SC

Posted by FlorenceMom.com on Monday, August 20, 2018, In : For Moms 
Update: Paint Nite is now YayMaker and currrently does not have any availability in Florence.

When it comes to relaxing, just sitting down on the couch to watch T.V. or browsing on the phone can sound so unexciting. If you like creating art or making anything with your hands, Paint Nite is a great alternative, especially if you have an empty wall to fill. It's 2 hours of fun with all painting supplies included (even the apron)! 

Recently, FlorenceMom.com went to a Paint Nite at Mellow Mushroom ...

--- Update: Paint Nite is now called YayMaker and currently does not have any availability in Florence. Read below about my past experience with Paint Nite when they still had events in Florence back in the day. ---

This Florence mom took a break from a regular night and joined another friend at a Paint Nite event at Mellow Mushroom! They had it in a private closed room so you really feel like you are in a party with 18 other painters in the room. 

We came 15 minutes early to check in and order...

How to Meet Other Moms in Florence

Posted by FlorenceMom.com on Monday, February 22, 2016, In : For Moms 
It's been exactly 3 years since we've moved to South Carolina from Southern California and it's been quite an experience for me to adjust from a different lifestyle to an unknown territory with no friends nor family nearby. The truth is, moving to a new environment and knowing nobody is difficult, AT FIRST. It'll take time and patience to find new friends and get familiar with your surroundings. If you are a new mom who just moved here from a different place as well, the first year will proba...

About Me


FlorenceMom.com Originally from Southern California, we had moved here when my husband got out of the military and began his civilian work at the Duke Energy Power Plant in Hartsville. I started this blog because I had a hard time finding family-friendly resources online in Florence so I started documenting and taking pictures of our adventures and places we've been. I hope this helps you as a transplant or new mom too. I have two sons who were both born in Florence.
All local photos under the homepage, events & activities page, food & drinks page, relocating page, mom fun pageday trips page and more were taken by FlorenceMom.com from our personal visits. They are all our original content.
