Living Up To The Name

Since this blog is called "Julie - Out And About", I thought I'd better get out and about more.  Or else I'm going to run out of material pretty quick! Well, today I was presented with just such an opportunity.   Due to plans being shifted, I ended up with the entire day to myself.  I decided to take advantage of the two major plus factors of the day - free time, and warm(er) weather.  (It's been rather chilly lately - almost as if we bypassed autumn and flew right into winter) So I got dressed in a very cute outfit (if I do say so myself) and hit the neighborhood shops.
