~Like most children, I was not a fan of broccoli or anything green growing up. But as I and my palate matured I came to not only like broccoli, but rather enjoy it. And I'll always remember how to spell it because every time I think of broccoli I think of the movie Daddy Day… Continue reading Broccoli Binge
~The Frankfort Country Market had cancelled its Spring market due to the coronavirus, but today was the first day of their modified Summer market! Some of the modifications that were in place were that everyone was required to wear masks, no free samples, and if you were paying with cash (and it wasn't exact) you… Continue reading It’s good to be back ❤
~Hello everyone, Wanted to give you an update in light of these unprecedented times. I’m doing well, not feeling sick at all, and still working since veterinary medicine is considered “essential”.

~Happy New Year everyone! In 2020 I'm looking forward to new discoveries in healthy living and hopefully some new farmer's markets! *Update: I'm no longer sick! 😀 I will, however, be writing at least 2 more posts in my Sickness Saga in the next day or two so be on the look out for those.
~Today's a better day, not as stuffy and not coughing as much. Does that mean I'm finally on the mend?! God I hope so -_- Earlier this week I was okay enough to run errands around town before meeting some friends. In the middle of errand running, I decided to treat myself to a rare… Continue reading Sickness Saga Part 2: Becoming a medicine baller
~Ever hear of the expression 'I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired'? Well, that's me. To a T. In every literal sense of the word For over a month (though it feels like much longer) I've been battling concurrent colds after recovering from pneumonia. Yeah, the big P. The next few blog… Continue reading Sickness Saga Part 1: The Beginning
~Last weekend my fiance and I checked out the Strawberry Festival, an annual event held in Long Grove, IL from June 21-23 (we went on the 21st since we both had the day off). It was about an hour drive from where I live, but thankfully traffic wasn't bad. The main road took us on… Continue reading Long Grove Strawberry Fest 2019
