Today I went to the local farmer's market. I LOVE the farmer's market! It is so friendly and the stuff there is fresh and awesome!

Yesterday I worked on my garage disaster... but at a slow pace. I decided it is okay to give myself permission to take it easy. The last few weeks of hustle and bustle took it out of me. The simple joys of life are always missed when you are in a hurry. It's been nice… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 268 and 269
