We had free time on Sunday until 3pm. We could do whatever we wanted to do. Many folks went to Michigan Avenue, some went to the Navy Pier… a few even went to the Sears Tower.
Been there. Done that. I had my own plans:
I took a cab from the hotel & ended up getting there a bit early. I didn’t want to seem like too eager of a customer (stalker) so I took a little stroll around the neighborhood to wait for them to open.
Cute little neighborhood – lots of quirky shops and cool buildings. It was a cloudy and overcast day. I think the sun finally came out yesterday, on our way to the airport. (of course)
They were having a crop that day & I expected to recognize some faces. Sounds reasonable, right? I mean – I know NO ONE in this city & yet my brain thought that I’d walk into a Scrapbook Store and know people. How, you ask? I HAVE NO IDEA. I dunno – maybe those small avatars & clandestine nicknames from scrapbooking websites and blogs would come in handy for recognizing complete strangers?
I know, I know. I have no explanation for the way my brain works.
At least I enjoyed myself. Awesome store, btw.
My sister Jillian said, “So, she got her fix, huh?”
Yes, yes I did.
