Today Van and I visited "Petalers". It's a flower shop/gift shop/home decor shop. It was so cute and there were so many things I wanted. I'll have to take a pic of the outside so you can all experience it with me. I will be frequenting it often:)
Even though I grew up in Parma, I feel like I really don't know my town. Because we live out in the country, about 10 miles from town, I didn't spend a lot of time within the city limits. And when I was in high school I didn't care about anything besides sports and boys. So now I've decided to reaquaint myself with good ol' Parma!
Today Van and I went to the Patricia Romanko Library (Pat Romanko was the mayor of Parma for many years). They had story time at 10:00 am and we drove by at 10:15 am and there was a closed sign. I thought that was odd because there was a sidewalk board advertising story time for 10:00 and yet they were closed? So I checked anyway and the doors were open and there were a few people, including little kids, inside finishing up story time. I told them I thought they were closed and they said they open early on Wednesday and Friday for story time but regular opening time is 10:30. Kinda crazy?! Why would you open but keep a closed sign? Another mom and her daughters came in right after me and said the same thing. So I wasn't the only one confused. The explanation from the librarian is because that's how it's always been done. Ah yes, why would I ever expect a different response from a small town library? Anyway, we enjoyed what was left and now I know when to show up. And I met some new friends! After library I noticed a new restaurant had opened down the street and it looked fun, so Van and I walked down and had lunch at our new favorite place "Bistro 2 fifteen". They have sandwiches, wraps, salads and soup. It had just opened last Friday and I love it!!! It was very yummy and we will definately go again. Oh, and they have breakfast too.
