I love the farmers market & my friends...

I love the farmers market. So much.

Do you know what is so funny...that bag of cherries cost me $5.  And we have a huge cherry tree with weighted branches in our backyard.  But the cherries are out-of-reach.  The only ones eating our cherries are the birds and the chipmunks. They LOVe it here.

So do I.

But life isn't always a bowl of you-know-what...

and when the dreadful fall happened and I was standing in my backyard with my husband in one ambulance...

and my boy in another...

and my girl...

my girl....

what am I supposed to do with my girl?

I felt really alone.

My friends are all at least 30 mins away...

some of the most special are plane rides away.

But I have found friends and kindred spirits where I didn't know I had them...

and I am so grateful.


I finally got around to potting my tomato plant...

and some herbs...

and I can thank Kasey and Paula for the inspiration.

I'm hoping these might be a few things I can pick from my own backyard this summer.

Thank you to all you lovelies who leave the kindest of comments...you make my day.
