    Oh my gosh! We live in Geneva and LOVE Graham’s! Our old apartment was across the street from it– danger zone! haha! But now we are just a mile away in our house. Have you been to Graham’s 318 before? It’s the coffee shop component, just a few doors down. Obsessed! I love Camilyn Beth, too! I wore one of her dresses for my engagement pics a few years ago. I love your list!!
