I just got back last night from my trip to Northern California. First I have to say thank you to Amber for letting me crash at your place and driving me all over the place! And when I say all over, I mean it. We went to San Francisco, Berkeley, Stockton, 3 stores that sell Vera Bradley, etc. Haha. It was a really great trip with two major highlights. One is that Sophia had her baby and I got to go visit them! Awwww...she is such a sweetie! And the other is that I was able to get the bags that I wanted from craigslist! We had a bit of a communication breakdown, but in the end it all worked out and I couldnt be happier! I was able to get two of the retired style Villagers, one in Katherine (with a matching coin purse) and in Pink Pansy! Today is by birthday, so they are like a birthday present for myself :) I am super excited about them!
