For the past couple of years, I’ve kept a standard weekday routine. I honestly was never a morning person ever. I used to sleep in later than I do now. I used to rush off to work and forget to do so many things that I needed to do. I’ve now transitioned into being a […]

This past weekend was the first time in a couple weeks that we had nothing completely planned. I wanted to take that time just to relax. Instead, I decided to do a few adventures. After my workout on Saturday, I decided to venture to the local Farmer’s Market. I have been to this market before, […]
