Fun and Frolic at Farmers' Markets


Summer and farmers' markets go together quite perfectly.



Fresh produce sold by the people who grow it is just so luscious.



While vacationing in Colorado recently, we stopped at the cutest market ever in Cherry Creek.

Even the name of the town----Cherry Creek----is enough to make you smile, isn't it?  

Are there really cherries growing near a creek there?  Hmmmm. I wonder.


Because it was mid-week, the market was on the small side but there were plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, baked goods and some non-edible items, too.


Among the jams and jellies were exotic combos like drunken fig!

I bought one plain and one almond croissant. 

 The woman behind the counter was from Lithuania, the home country of my paternal grandparents.


There was even music by an accordionist and guitarist. 


Farmers' markets bring out the best in everything.

WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DO YOU LIKE THE MOST ABOUT FARMERS MARKETS?

Breckenridge, Colorado---A Town to Remember


While on vacation this summer in Colorado, we had the opportunity to travel to the mountain town of Breckenridge.


This was a truly quaint and lovely town that made one think about being in a village in the Alps.



Walking through the downtown in summer was like taking a stroll through a kind of paradise.



There were flowers everywhere----hanging arrangements, window boxes and in containers all along the streets.



There was so much beauty and fragrance!

Talk about a fabulous place to visit, Breckenridge qualifies.

HAVE YOU EVER TRAVELED TO COLORADO?

Grateful, Grateful, Grateful

                                                                                               (Colorado)
It's so important to be grateful.
                                                                         
                                                                                                                       (Colorado)
                                                   
When I think of all the tremendous blessings in life, a feeling of deep gratitude overflows.

The world is filled with immense beauty, if we just look for it.

                                                                             (Colorado)
Amazing sunrises and sunsets, trees,  blue skies dotted with fluffy clouds, flowers, and on and on.


Everything is here for our enjoyment.



God is so good, kind, and generous.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST GRATEFUL FOR AT THIS MOMENT?
