I always liked the idea of local/corner stores and restaurants in cities. If you wanted to get a roll or cookie, you can find a bakery within walking distance, no need to stock the fridge and pantry for you can decide what you want to eat on the way home and pick it up. I have the grocery store, right next door which has been nice. On my way home from work I stopped at one of the local flower shops and picked up these lilies. They cost me under $3 and make the apartment smells really nice! It makes me happy. Next week maybe I will try the sunflowers.
