Every now and then I think about what it would be like to just meet up with my mom and sister for an afternoon o' girly fun. Those of you who get to do this regularly, cherish it! I believe one day this will be our reality. For now, I'll fake it!
If we had the chance to spend time together today, I would have us meet up in Glen Mills, PA, to visit the shop Terrain at Styer's.
|Terrain at Styer's is the brainchild of Anthropologie (no wonder we love it so much??). |
They sell the usual mix of fabulous housewares, but also garden related items.
We'd arrive at Terrain mid-morning. You know, it takes awhile for the three of us to get ready. My dad would most likely make us all some tea as we'd buzz around the house doing our hair and make-up. Getting outfits together would be another story! My sister would throw something together that would be stinkin' adorable. My mom and I would shake our heads and end up saying, "How does she think of that?" I would take bets that 2 out of the 3 of us would be donning an Emerson Made flower pin or some sort of Jackie Cardigan. We're predictable that way, and I love it! They're classic wardrobe staples.

Now back to Terrain.

How serene and stunning is this? It looks like the makings of a perfect summer day to me. The store Terrain sits on a hundred-year-old nursery, which operates as chemical free today.
I imagine we'd peruse the store for all sorts of knick-knacks. We'd probably circle each section at least 2 to 3 times. If a hidden camera followed us, they might be amazed at the number of times our trio used the word "cute". We'd probably catch ourselves eventually and share a laugh or two. After a few attempts to try to expand our usage of adjectives, we'd revert back to cute. After browsing all things precious and fun, we'd each come away with something terrific.

After spending our wad (a girl can dream, right?), we will have worked up an appetite. Lucky for us they serve a weekday lunch at their Cafe. Because it's a fictional fun day, we'll eat entirely too many carbs and cheese (warm bread, fingerling potatoes and mac 'n' cheese, anyone?). It's all fresh and local, so it's not bad for you, right? We won't turn down dessert; we don't get to have days like these often.

I love you two!
