~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”.

~You might have noticed that the Market Map page is missing. That's because I'm in the process of making sure the information about the markets I've visited is as accurate as possible. You may see the page down from time to time for this reason, and when I add a new market to the list.… Continue reading Announcements!

~Can you believe that Christmas is only a couple of days away?! Good thing I finished all my Christmas shopping lol. But if you didn't, I have a place where you'll find the perfect gift: Christkindlmarket in downtown Naperville (or Chicago, but Naperville is closer for me). I've been wanting to go to Christkindlmarket for… Continue reading Countdown to Christmas
~Most people know Burt's Bees through their lip balm, but did you know that Burt's Bees is so much more than that? They make shampoos, face creams, body lotions, and cleansing cloths galore, catering to all skin tones. I have oily skin and because of that I am more acne prone than most (whoopee...) I've… Continue reading Burt’s Bees Beauty Challenge: Start!
