i treat myself to fresh cut flowers when i can, even if i just buy a stem or two. today i bought two beautiful Gerber daisies, this yellow/pink one, and a solid pink one from a flower stand in the 4th Street Shopping District in Berkeley. I love that place. A girl’s shopping heaven, and artist studio’s too! I was in the area picking up a violin with my son, Patrick, who is starting back with his violin lessons. so as we headed back towards the freeway down Gilman, I realized where we were, and made a beeline for 4th Street. We checked out CB2, Sur La Table, Crate & Barrel outlet, and iced drinks at Peet’s Coffee. I made a mental note to return soon and browse a little longer, sans my son. I need a mommy moment at M.A.C. cosmetics and Anthroplogie.
