I love Saturdays! Why? Because I get to go to the Farmers' Market!! I look forward to it every week and here are some reasons why.
1. You get to be outside walking around on a beautiful day like today. I always park far and walk up and down twice. :)
2. You get local, organic produce for less than you would pay for organic produce at the grocery store.
3. Even if you don't buy groceries, the Farmers' Market is a fun place to hang out on a weekend. You can look at everything people are selling, hear people playing guitars and pianos and singing all along the way and best of all...smell the yummy kettle corn! It smells soooo amazing. The lines for the kettle corn (and/or snow cones on the hot days) are always super long because you just can't resist the smell of freshly popped popcorn.
10. And finally, I love the Farmers' Market because it is part of our healthy lifestyle. I know exactly where all my food is coming from (never more than 50 miles away), supporting our local farmers, the produce I buy is fresh and never has any pesticides or herbicides (always make sure to ask though!), and I get some morning exercise and fresh air. I can't wait until next Saturday :D

I love reading other people's blogs and have been wanting to start one myself for awhile....well now I've finally decided to do it! This blog will be about what we've been up to, good devotions I've read or sermons I've heard, exercising, nutrition tips, recipes, natural remedies...and anything else I think of! :) I thought I'd start off with a video of Elliott and his new "dance." I think it's pretty stinkin' adorable!
