books and cake

as much as i have enjoyed living in salem thus far, i knew there were quite a number of places that i had yet to explore. i invited abby to come on this little adventure. it was so fun to see downtown salem a little bit more with a kindred spirit. and bonus, i discovered two new favorite places that also happen to be quite close to my house-

a charming bakery, with absolutely delicious cakes. 

a delightful book shop, with new and used books
abby and i discovered many shared favorites, and enjoyed perusing all of the julia child-related books that are currently popular. 

abby & our yummy shared lunch
turkey spread-our light lunch to leave room for cake!
alison & abby-a slice of coconut cake & a slice of mounds cake
more cakes to try next time!
