Last week a few good friends got together to purchase one of my gift certificates for their good friend who is adopting a little girl. One of them wrote the sweetest poem to go on the certificate I asked… and the author, Leigh Ann Wilder, gave me permission to share! Get out the kleenex box:) I can’t wait to meet Phoebe!
When the highchairs are gone
and Good Night Moon has been packed away
We hope these photographs
will bring lasting memories
of that very special day
Phoebe came to brighten our lives,
and to forever be your little girl.

If you are looking for some great local things to do this weekend , there is a lot to choose from! I checked out the Five Points Farmers Market last weekend-in the NOFO parking lot. It was small, but really great. I picked up some incredible jalapeno cheddar bread from YellowDog Bread Company– I am going to try their rustic wheat or sourdough this weekend. I also bought some INCREDIBLE pimento cheese from Bickett Market– and beautiful beets from another vendor that I can not remember the name of-sorry, maybe it was New Grass Gardens?! And last, blueberries and peaches from Smith’s Nursery! Go check it out! And if you are still in need of more fresh produce and want to support the local farmers, we subscribe to a local CSA- Papa Spuds! We can order what we would like each week, and it is delivered to our door! I love it! This week I got local/organic blackberries, green summer squash, mixed salad greens, sweet corn and mushrooms!
Ok, off the subject of food for a minute This Saturday starting at 3pm is the Kirby Derby!! I have been out of town for the last few years for this- but I am excited to check it out this year! it is a neighborhood party-but everyone is invited…it includes a parade that is unlike any you have been to in the past- it is full of really creative people, crazy floats, and great local music! Cocktails on the curb while watching is highly suggested. oh, and back to food again- Baja Burrito will be there selling their famous delicious burritos! Check out the website for all of the days events!
Shop Local Raleigh is putting on a great free festival this Saturday at Seaboard Station to help support our local businesses. Music, Bouncy tents, face painting, dog wash, and local food to purchase- 2-8pm! Also, Stop by one of my fav women’s clothing shops, Galetea too while you are there!!
