my happy place
sister and I went to the farmer's market today. when we finally left my arms had red marks up and down them from lugging around so many bags. I wanted everything. That's not an exaggeration. Not at all.
I left with green beans, summer squash, zucchini, corn on the cob, cucumbers, peaches, plums! Both fiance and I are out of town this weekend so we have a lot of eating to do my love. Sorry.
After selecting all my produce I walked over to the fresh flower stand where a bunch of peonies screamed my name! 'Emily! You must purchase us! We are beautiful, pink, full, round blooms!' I CANNOT wait to get home and place these pretties in a little vase that will adorn my night stand. I've coveted these lovelies for quite some time. They now rest in our walk in cooler at work and I keep going to peek on them just to make sure they are okay. That's how much I love them.
I must also mention that there was a homemade baked goods stands. I wanted to avoid it. I really, really did! Then I saw sister at the stand talking to the smiling gal' behind the counter and I gave into temptation. The smell of cinnamon and freshly baked bread permeated the air. I was done for! I showed some restraint and bought a teeny tiny loaf of sourdough bread. It's my favorite.
Sister sent me a text once I was back in the office and said it was "the bomb"! I immediately went to unwrap my loaf, sliced off a small slice and smothered it in the homemade jam that had caught my eye during check out. well worth it indeed my sister! even if it means I shall forgo dinner tonight. ;)
I'm a southern girl who grew up in a little bitty town. I met the love of my life in 2001 after getting the guts to leave that lil' bitty town and attend college at Virginia Tech University.
We've been together for over 7 years and I couldn't be happier about marrying him in 2009.
