After writing an ambiguous paper and cramming for a test, I needed a mega-break last night. Melissa and Gretchen and I headed to The Riverwoods to shop at our favorite boutique. After admiring springtime blouses and perfect jewelry, we wandered into Blickenstaff's--it's a toy store, kids. The best toy store. They sell pretty glass bottle sodas and retro candies. And the Hogwarts Express, princess mosaics, and a $1,600 tailless rocking horse. Clearly we found our happy place (see photos).
Eventually, we ended up at a bookstore, sharing a caramel apple,
Because a little bit of happy never hurt anyone.
