A New Leaf

it’s not all food and eating in our backyard (although we would not complain if it was!).

one of our stops while in lincoln park in chicago was a new leaf, catty corner to the perennial. what looked like an ordinary flower shop was not so ordinary when we stepped in.

i have never seen flowers arranged so well in a shop! everything was thoughtfully placed around the store. cheeks and i split up and wandered around this urban sanctuary. i spied an open courtyard at the back, stepped outside and was again taken somewhere extraordinary.

i love shops like this where the owners and workers all put their hearts in what they do. you can see how they want you to feel when you walk in the store. i almost did not want to leave. it felt like i was swept away to a lush paradise.
