Good morning friends! I hope you’re having a nice weekend. I started off mine on Friday night with my boyfriend; I made a simple dinner with spaghetti and kale salad, and we shared a good bottle of wine. And then I fell asleep on the couch at 9 PM. ha! On Saturday, we met up for a long run at Salem Lake – 13.3 miles in 1 hour, 44 minutes, averaging 8 minute miles. The humidity was brutal! Afterwards, we hit up the Cobblestone Farmer’s Market. I stocked up on some Krankies Coffee, blueberries, and got a garlic braid for my kitchen. I loooove this blend of coffee.
(Krankies is a Winston-Salem company but you can buy their beans online, if you’re interested. Not a sponsored post…just love their coffee! )
Last week at the farmers’ market, my boyfriend and I met a guy when we were admiring his dog. Turns out, his wife reads my blog! And she commented on my post about struggling to find real-food running fuel options and recommended Picky Bars. She and her husband brought a Picky Bar to the farmers’ market this week in case they saw me so I could try one! How nice is that? I was blown away by the thoughtfulness. Thank you Jenni! (and thank your husband too! can’t remember his name… Chris?? Ugh, I’m terrible with names.) Can’t wait to give it a try!
I don’t have many links to share this week – I didn’t’ have much time last week to browse the internet and my favorite blogs. Alas, life gets busy. But, I did stumble upon this gem that gave me serious wanderlust.

Would you rather have a beach vacation or a mountain vacation? I’m pretty I’d pick the mountains. Unless it was Hawaii…then I’d pick the beach. Beautiful beaches + hiking! The beaches without hiking nearby can get a little boring to me since I’m not a huge water person. 🙂
