When you toss that schedule away-




After swimming lessons, I had a list a mile long of everything I needed to get accomplished for the day....it layed right next to me in the passengers seat...staring at me!

After a few minutes, talking with my daughter....

we (don't you like how I say "we"...honestly it should be "me") decided to do a little shopping. Went to one of my favorite stores....

it's just a beautiful store with such fun things....we looked at everything...

Getting into the car...we both realized we were near our favorite lunch/tearoom {spot}...so we headed there and they had one table for {2} left in the corner.

When we walked in, the lady said "Well, there is the little girl who loves pickles and tea."

So we shared a pot of tea and they brought out our lunch. They served her favorite pickles in a fancy silver dish.

It was a perfect afternoon with her and somehow my {list} was not very important anymore..

p.s. well, my list may become {important} again...when it's tomorrow morning and no one has socks to wear!

Sounds like a great way to spend the afternoon. Kids don't care if their socks are clean, right?

What a sweet and wonderful time. I love everything Anthropolgie but have never been. I've only admired from a distance through their catalogs and website.
