Well, would you look at that! I finally updated my blog design! It looks a little more professional, and thanks to my awesome sister, I now have a logo I can be proud of. I spent a couple hours yesterday morning working on it, and there may still be some more kinks I need to work out, so I appreciate your patience! Let me know how you like it!

Big post this week, as I went to 5 different places to get groceries. Just little things here and there, but I can’t help it; if something’s a good deal, I have to be sure to take advantage! I’m still loving our local Farmer’s Market, too; I’ll be sad when it ends for the year in October. The produce is just huge and so delicious! Here’s what I bought this week.
