Farmer's Market Love

We went to the local Famer's Market today in the hopes of finding heirloom tomatos, strawberries and sweet pea sproutlings. No heirloom tomatos or sweet peas, but we found beautiful strawberries and settled on a small basil plant to replace our dead one.


Sweet Basil

You can't imagine how amazing these smell...

Getting Personal

I have a hard time knowing what to write about myself. I always worry that there's a fine line between informative and TMI and I'm on the wrong side of it. Plus my childhood shyness tends to rear its ugly head whenever I try to write anything remotely resembling a bio or artist statement.


Anyway, here's a start! Thanks, Carly (of Lovely and Amazing) for the idea!
