Weekend Rituals







Just up the road from me is a great Italian deli. The kind where all of the family works in the shop over the weekend, and let me tell you the 8 yr old daughter has a better business brain than I do!

I head up there almost every Saturday morning to buy flowers. Not fancy pants flowers, but fresh, bright and huge bunches of whatever is in season. These bunches come wrapped in that squeaky silver plastic wrap, that blinds you when you walk out of the shop and into the morning sun.

I go in, browse around, look at the colours they have, and grab whatever takes my fancy. Now here's the best part, this gorgeous little shop sells these gems for $5 a pop! Unbelievable. I think they think I'm mad when I walk out with armfulls, but that's OK, I get a week's worth of joy.

I am so jealous! Two things my neighborhood is missing: an amazing italian deli, and affordable, beautiful flowers.

So pretty.
