Why: the current Vera Bradley promotional Shoppers' Tote ~ Green Piece had arrived! My name was on the shop's list for the next delivery after they immediately sold out of the popular bag's first shipment. My bright green owl tote was ready to be picked up! I wish my sister could have been with me since she's the one who sent me the promotional email and got me all interested in the first place.
Anyway, Karen alerted me, "arriving at Virginia Gift Shop on right," and I found a parking spot along the street in front of the shop. The town of Luray has a wonderfully quaint little Main Street, and I wished I had planned to stay and browse awhile as several antique shops looked worthy of a stop.
But...I still needed to purchase this year's plants for the hanging baskets and window boxes and the wave petunias to plant in the watering cans down the front steps before heading home with all the groceries.
At this point, I really didn't need Karen anymore, but I always love hearing her say..."arriving at Home, on right." It was a wonderful little adventuresome day!
