now that school is officially out for the summer, {YIPPEE!!!} i am heaving a huge sigh of relief!  i took the long way home after school yesterday, driving through the country back roads.  as i crossed into cheeseland from the land of lincoln, i decided to take a little detour & check out some interesting shops i spied. 

 i saw this charming little chair in front of this cute place, called annabelle’s.  i loved the old-timey red & white mosaic tiles in front of this delightfully romantic shop.  the shop’s proprietress, cindy, was friendly and welcoming.  we struck up a conversation after i told her that her cute cottage chair pretty much hooked me into her store, hehehe!  she named the shop after her mother, annabelle.  what a sweet tribute. & her shop, well, it was enchanting!  gorgeously decorated. 

we chatted about how this month will mark her one year anniversary & then she told me about other fun shops on this street that i should visit.  hmmmm, i told her that my sis (looney) would go gaga over her french/parisian merch!  she’s an official dealer of  romantic homes magazines & sells them  in her shop at half price!  wow, i told her that i will be coming there to pick up my next copy, lol.  perfect excuse, too, hehehe (don’t worry loon, i picked up a copy for you…as well as a business card!).  we chatted about country living’s women entrepreneur event.  she had wanted to go, but the tix were sold out!  i told her that my sis & i went & had an absolutely fab time.  she wants to go next year.  i told her that we’d be there!  i enjoyed chatting with her…she was lovely. i also told her that i found her place on a whim.  she was glad that i stopped by.   how serendipitous, my happening onto her place. 

you know what?  good things seem to happen whenever i follow my bliss. 😉
