I can’t begin to tell you how fun it was to visit a Hallmark store!
We went to one in the town next to ours, Petaluma, which is about 20 minutes away. I haven’t been to a Hallmark store in years, and I swear, being there made me so happy. There’s something very sweet and comforting about all the thoughtful gifts to give to others and to yourself.
There are all the fun things that you totally don’t need but want anyway, like the “Gilmore Girls” cookbook and the talking ornaments from “Schitt’s Creek” and “The Golden Girls.”
Don’t even get me started on all the colorful, cute mugs and tchotchkes.
There’s even a subsection of gifts for cat ladies!
Maybe it was because I was feeling a little hormonal, but I may or may not’ve gotten weepy a few times as I was window shopping, like when I saw this cuddly teddy with a message of strength and hope.
It was all over when I saw the Willow Tree figurines, especially the ones with families of three with a lil’ one.
Side note, I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s gotten teary all up in a Hallmark store, LOL!
We left with some gifts for loved ones, a small hummingbird charm for Connor, stationary and wrapping paper for myself, and lots of happiness in our hearts.
I can’t wait to go back!
