POV: You're a humble bookstore owner in New York. As much as you love summer, there's something about the crispness of fall in the city that just makes you want to buy school supplies. A backpack! A new bike perhaps? A bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils even! You always take the same route to your store, but today's a bit different. You swing by the bodega to pick up the end of the season's fresh sunflowers — they have your card on file so you keep cruising past. Down the avenue you go, to a looming intersection where a large store sign is being installed. "Who calls a bookstore 'Fox' anyway?" you wonder to yourself, peering into their covered windows where there's undoubtedly a chain coffee shop counter being mounted, alongside mass manufactured bookshelves in a very predictable (and boring) oak finish.
You sigh, just as a cab honking nearby startles you out of your thoughts. Now remembering the shipment of L.M. Montgomery books you've been expecting for weeks, you hop back on your bike to beeline to the shop around the corner. Breezing in through the front door, now looking for a vase for your sunflowers, your mind wanders again..."I wonder how L.M. Montgomery would write an email to a man she hardly knows...?"

Nice article, thanks for sharing this!
This bike must be amazing ride to explore the city or doing your daily-ride to the bakery-story for example.
Hi Krystal, I see you still wear your much used Chanel slingbacks; great casual look.
A nice combination of very expensive shoes being used daily.
Please wear them as much as possible in your blogs, and don’t throw them away!

As soon as August ends, “You’ve got mail” is my movie of choice to celebrate the beginning of the fall. I love this simple yet elegant outfit. A beautiful homage to Meg Ryan in the role of Kathleen Kelly.
Fall! There is nothing better than the first crisp morning! Today’s blog post has me giddy with excitement.
I love the magnificent photos.
Sunflowers are wonderful.
Books are our best company to fill our souls.
