Elizabeth, Illinois at its finest is ... the movie set for Gilmore Girls?




We walked through town and bought one too many nicknacks at Something Special. I highly recommend this shop; the owner is so sweet. When she learned that we hadn't bothered to make hotel reservations for the night in Galena, she picked up the phone and tried to find us accomodation simply because she was worried we'd be left out in the cold!

What's more... as we were buying our goods, a local policeman popped his head in to say someone had left their trunk open and ask if it was intentional. Oh... my heart all but melted; does such friendliness still really exist in this world?



All I have to say to this town is ... My compliments, Elizabeth!

I am really enjoying your trip through your pictures. Your daughter sounds so much like a few of mine...I got a chuckle out of it.

A real charmer, I guess this is what keeps me in the midwest.
