This post was inspired by a post on C’est Christine which was inspired by a post on Where My Heart Resides which was inspired by a post on Barefoot on 45th. (Gosh, I love the internet!) Thanks to Cynthia for sharing the posts with me and to Heather for reminding me that I believe in choosing happiness.
I love this post :) so great seeing you this weekend again… maybe I’ll see you in Philly if I end up tagging along with the ladies!
I agree with almost everything except for the KETCHUP comment! How could you!? :P
And by the way, if you’ve never seen this video regarding farmer’s produce vs. grocery store, take a look! It will reinforce your belief even more!
For some reason, I’m just really opposed to ketchup, unless I’m using it as an ingredient in something else.
I have seen that video, but its really great so I’m glad you shared it. Thanks for reading!
This may or may not be my favorite post of the summer thus far.
Aw, thanks Heather! That just made my day.
