Quick Trip

We had Tuesday off from work for Lincoln's Birthday and took a quick trip to St. Louis to see my daughter and family. They took us around the area to some really cute shops that I thought my blog friends would be interested in knowing about - if they are ever in the area or would like to shop online with any of these shops. These shops are in Webster Groves and Kirkwood.

First we went to "The Apple of Your Eye". This store had a lot of cute bags, baby gifts, and knick knacks.

Another store we went to was "The Empty Nest". This store has furniture, dishes, frames, candles and many, many other cute and fun things.

After shopping we went to a wonderful pizza place in Kirkwood called "Deweys". Wonderful salad and specialty pizzas.

Before we got to the pizza place we were stopped for a funeral procession. If you have not heard about it, but Kirkwood had a terrible tragedy in this small town. A man went into a city council meeting and killed two council members, a city worker, and two policemen before turning the gun on himself. The story on CNN is here. The funeral processing was very long. Police officers from around the state had come to give tribute to their fallen comrades. Very moving site.

We had a great time looking through small shops and eating great pizza as well as a fun time visiting with my daughter, SIL and granddaughter!

Yes, I love Webster and Kirkwood. Next time you're in town, drop me a line. Maybe we could "meet up" for lunch or coffee!! (although I know that time is precious with that new grandbaby!!)

Much love,
