                                               Our Story

Frank and Mary moved to Destin trying to retire after selling thier New Orleans restaurant,The Bucktown Kitchen, on Lake Pontchartrain.  Frank had owned a condo in Destin since 1978 and had always planned on moving here permanently.  Soon after coming here, they discovered that fishing and playing with grandchildren was not enough.  Even helping running errands for the children got old.  In 2007 they build a new home where they reside with their 3 dogs Roxy, Tiger, and Buddy and a wild wood duck who lives in the swimming pool named Bruno The Bird.

After deciding they needed to get into something to keep them occupied, they decided to open a store, GG Bloom , located in The Shops of Destiny.  Mary decided on the name after her daughter , Gillian, and Frank's granddaughter, Gabby.  GG Bloom specializes in fresh flowers, gifts, and gift baskets that can include wine, cheese and handmade chocolates.  They also plan on gearing the store to the seasons including Mardi Gras, Valentines, Easter, and Christmas.
