Stark Contrast

Last weekends scene:
Pure and refreshing snow (and lots of it), majestic pines, log cabins, the warmth and glow of the wood burning fireplace... It was the weekend of our Squadron Flagstaff trip! We were able to take a little snow time and bundle up and to get a run on the sled or two! Riley even got to experience a sled ride compliments of daddy- who loves to push limits. He wasn't too keen on the cold though and our sledding time was cut short due to cold little chubby legs.


This weekend's scene:

Sun shining, gentle breeze, palm trees whispering, and the aroma of Organic treats lingering in the air... We found a little organic farmers market that's set up every third Saturday of each month! Some of the highlights that will keep me revisiting are of course the local organically grown produce, hand made pasta with amazing flavor explosions (like spinach/basil/garlic and habenaro!), locally made tea, raw honey and whipped spreads-mmmmm, and even a gal who sews baby things (which I totally got ideas from)! It was such a lovely day.. imagine a light stroll around the outdoor complex while listening to soothing jazz in the background, browsing the many vendors displaying whole and natural products and services. Unexpectedly, there were many of the jewelry vendors.. I guess I thought farmers market to be food related. It was better than going to a spa, in my mind!! I almost brought home a new family pet.. but on second thought, I really do love being married to John! We wandered into a wine shop which was doing free organic wine tastings.. I do love me a good glass of wine! And to top off the day at the ol' Farmer's Market, Tiffany got some gorgeous flowers to display for her dinner guests (that's me)!

Piggies! You should have done it. :) I don't John would have noticed a pig running around the house.

Where in the world is this farmers market? I am in! I so miss the one I went to weekly in Atlanta...
