looks like a great weekend! I can't wait for the summer bonfires to start. :-)
I've been vicariously living through you per your photos on Instagram. What a great weekend- and thank goodness for Farmers Markets opening early! I honestly don't know I survive in December-April when ours are closed for the season!

Ashley--> Luckily, we have one that runs every other weekend for a few months in the winter. There isn't a ton of produce but it's better than nothing. The hard thing was waiting until late June for the summer market! So glad it's early!
Fun weekend! Checking out the guest post now..happy Monday!

Ashley--> Not sure exactly when it will be posted. Looks like it isn't up quite yet.

Love the Friday night family photo! And you are just so gorgeous! Hmm... seasonal flavor, I'm going to guess rhubarb?

Ashley--> You are too kind and very smart. Good guess! :)

That Indian food looks soooo good! Our farmer's markets started up May 1st, I haven't been yet but am so excited to start buying seasonal fruits & veggies soon! :D
Love that picture of the houseparty/bonfire. So excited for summer aren't you?

Ashley--> I can't wait! Although, it already feels like summer here!
