Heading to our local farmer's market is my favorite way to spend a Saturday morning, especially in the fall and winter months. There are tons of different markets in the greater Phoenix area, but our very favorite is the one in downtown Gilbert. On most Saturday mornings, Scott, my mom and I all try our very best to get down to the market around 9:30am to pick up veggies, the occasional plant or bunch of flowers, and usually an iced coffee (or two!) together. Going to local farmer's markets was something that my mom and I always did growing up together, so I love that we all get to experience this weekly routine together as a family now.

Now that the spring and summer months are almost upon us, our farmer's market trips may start to dwindle, but I will always love getting up early to soak in the sights, sounds and tastes of our local market -- especially those Proof Bread chocolate croissants that I desperately miss eating (GF since October!). In other news, not too much has been going on around here -- Scott and I both have had pretty busy weeks at work, and during the evenings we've been doing our best to make dinner at home and go on a nice two mile walk in our neighborhood before hitting the hay. I haven't been sleeping great lately, so I've been watching a lot of late-night home improvement tv shows (Fixer Upper & Rehab Addict are my favs) and also drinking more and more coffee to combat those tired mornings. On Friday I'm headed to San Francisco for a work trip, so I'm excited to be heading back to one of my most favorite cities -- the one where Scott and I spent our honeymoon, that is. :)
