It seems lately, I've been everywhere but here. We set up shop in Abilene for the Junior League Christmas Carousel...then in Fort Worth for the Silver Bells Boutique...and finally, down the block for the St. Nikolaus Markt. It's always nice to shake up the routine and to meet new people, but I've missed the shop and the shop has missed me! Today, I'm relishing the old routine, running it solo, and enjoying the slow pace of this lazy, beautiful Sunday. The street is adorned with garland and lights, the weather is gorgeous, the crowd is mild, and the live tunes streaming in from the biergarten next door - a rare treat. There may have never been a more perfect day for strolling Main...and shopping at Root!
