The Best Farmers' Market Totes


I love farmers' markets. Not only do they have the best and freshest selection of produce, but they are also a chance to support local farmers and small businesses. Here at the Jersey shore, there's practically a farmers' market everyday in a different town. So, if you miss your favorite market on Saturday, chances are you can find an equally good one on Sunday or any other day of the week.

Weekend Dispatch


We FINALLY had a weekend with gorgeous weather. It really was glorious. I spent the better part of Sunday afternoon cleaning our deck and getting it ready for the unofficial start of summer this weekend. I bought a new outdoor carpet and a new umbrella, but we still need new furniture. I've seen a sectional that I like, but if you have outdoor furniture that you love, let me know what you have and why you love it. I can't believe this weekend is Memorial Day weekend. We have a low key weekend planned with a few barbecues and parties. Otherwise, here's what I'm up to this week:

Weekend Dispatch


Last weekend didn't leave much time for relaxing between Emma's birthday and Mother's Day, but since Mother's Day was wet and rainy, leaving us no option but to stay in where it was warm and dry, I made the best of it. I watched a movie everyone was raving about, downloaded and started listening to an audio book, and mixed up a really fun and tasty cocktail that you're going to want to make over and over again this summer.
