Macarons and music? Sign Zelda and I up! That’s just one of the activities coming up next week in Chicago. There’s also fun for little fashionistas with Pippa and Julie, and a Beauty and the Beast singalong for those who are still obsessing over the movie. Don’t delay, these both take place on Saturday, April 1st! If your crew is fully booked and needs a little more notice, mark your calendars for the Cars event later in next month. If Spring Break is taking you to the southeast coast, consider making a stop in Charleston. There’s plenty to do and it’s so pretty!
