For the Birds

We have a new Saturday ritual.

For the last month we have woken up to a Farmer’s Market in our park. We race to get dressed so we can join the merriment, visit with our neighbors, and buy local produce.

We eat lunch on our porch to the gentle sound of folk music as I ponder what to make with the season's harvest. By the afternoon, the stalls are cleaned up and there is no trace of the hustle and bustle of the market. But, we are left with a relaxed and satisfied feeling that makes our whole weekend feel more focused on family and home.


  1. What fun, the birdhouse looks like Lincoln Logs! We go to the Farmer's Market most Saturday mornings too :) We eat a glutonous amount of fruit on Saturday afternoon and manage to save a few pieces for the rest of the week.

  2. What a wonderful way to wake up! How lucky for you.

    To add a 3rd column, I followed a tutorial similar to this one:

    I can't find the exact one I used. This should do the trick, though. Just make sure you're using a tutorial that works with the Minima Template (which is what you are using)

    Good luck!
