A Trip to the Farmers Market…

Saturday Morning – 7:00 AM.  Something about a farmers’ market makes me want to get up early (amazing, I know), grab all of the cash I can find (I never have cash), and a Starbucks and head over to see beauty in every direction.  Putting on my wide-brimmed hat I carry my Trader Joe’s reusable…
