Wednesday's and Thursday's are our market days. I've come to love those days because going to the market is a fun things not just for me, but for Babers.
If it's a sunny day outside combined with some warm weather then we just hit jackpot with the pleasure of going to the beach after our purchases are made.
I just LOVE that I can buy garden grown veggies and fruits without having to actually grow or have a garden myself. I'm in the process of growing my herb garden with only peppermint and parsley so far, but I'm taking it slowly.
I've also noticed that I'm not a big fruit person. I don't really eat fruit through out my day (I'll be working on that), but I love eating my veggies. I'd rather eat veggies then your standard fruits like banana's and apples.
My favorite part of our market trip yesterday was eating raspberry pie. I'm also a big pie person and I do not like cake. I get my fruits from pie, just joking. I've never had a raspberry pie, but not I'll be looking for it at the market every time. It was so good! I couldn't eat too much of it because of all the sugar and was glad I could spit it between my mother-in-law and Babers.
I guess I'm drawn to the colors, people and smells of the market. It brings joy to my heart to be able to support local farms, have a fun time shopping and experience a way of life that I've always wanted.
After the market we walked to the beach.
The water was cold with a chilly breeze, but it is truly feeling like summer. There is nothing better then to help your son throw rocks into the water and scream as the wave catch up with your toes.
It didn't last long because the hunger monster attacked. I've been hungry all the time this past week and it's getting old, but once I eat it was absolutely amazing. I also love eating good food that I didn't cook.
I cracked out crystal pitcher so now we have a temp one.
These last two images are my favorite moments from yesterday that I was happy to capture.
