I love my local farmer's market - when I go, my first stop is always for a green smoothie from this booth - so. good. Today I also bought some beautiful Swiss chard. Year-round farmer's markets = a great thing about Texas!

i have been bad at blogging this fall…really, this year.  i'm going to attempt to ease my way back into a daily ritual of blogging by giving you more pictures or documenting more little moments, and do it on a more regular basis.
