I SPY: Neighborhood

If you have not yet met Ashley from Little Miss Momma, you should. She's cute, she's funny, and she's real.  
And she started this 'I SPY' series. Fun, no? I think so.  Something a little different.
So on this beautiful 60 degree day, I grabbed my iPhone and took a 3 mile stroll around town with my pooch, trying not to look like a creepy person whilst snapping phone pix.

Shadows

Kids on the playground (my kids school)

Mama goose who made a nest and laid eggs in the gardens on said playground!

My favorite house in our immediate n'hood. Just adore that architecture.

Spring is here! The fountain is alive and outdoor seating is available at the cafe in the village!

 Peeking in at La Reve...the French Patisserie in the village (yum).

My favorite stretch of North Avenue (except for the place whose striped awning is sticking out). It houses a yummy Italian restaurant, my favorite consignment boutique, and our regular donut/pizza joint.

Yes, they are weeds. But they sure are pretty weeds.

I hope you enjoyed the little jaunt through our charming old village! You'd never guess I am 2 blocks outside of the 28th most populated city in the US, would you?  I love that we're quite urban, but that its got a small town charm to it.

Ok I NEED to know where you live so I can move there too! I LOVE everything about your town, so quaint, such charm, so much character! I need a pizza place, donut place and consignment store by my house too!

These are all reasons we can't wait to move there! So adorable. Isn't that the fountain that Cohen wanted to play in? It was cold and boring that night. Guess we'll have to come back. And seriously.. those ARE some pretty weeds. Thanks for sharing your hood w/us last week.

I love that picture of the goose! I hope that none of the kids on the playground get too close...
