Do you notice how few of the shopping places are at the mall?  Almost none.  Hmm. :)

It matters to us as much as it matters to you.

Great post Monica, though there a few in the wrong order to suit my tastes, but you can't argue with the court of opinion.  Who would have thought that a town could support so many cup cake shops.
