I have finished officially finished all of my undergraduate responsibilities! I am so blessed to be done with this chapter of my life but will miss the life I created downtown, at North Central. But moving on, the weather finally feels spring-y in Minnesota!
Things that make me say YAY about spring
Today was my first farmer's market of 2012! I love going to these to markets because you get a little bit of fresh air, get great LOCAL/FRESH produce (a key to being healthy!), walk around (awhile eating cinnamon covered almonds of course), and support our local farmers. This is one of the biggest differences of the United States and Europe. In Europe they have markets everywhere- so they people naturally will walk and buy fresh produce. This allows for more movement in their daily schedule as well as preservative free food.
Now that farmer markets trend is starting to spread here in the United State, I always try and go to get my produce in the summer months. It is an overall fun experience and if you are in the Minneapolis area there are TONS to choice from!
GARAGE SALE TIME
Tis the season for garage sales, thrifting, and finding local treasures :)
I get to start planting my garden so I will be producing some of my own local produce. This year I will be doing a couple varieties of herbs and vegetables.
Everything is blooming, growing, and transforming from it's dull winter state. IT makes for a beautiful time of year. Aside from all of my allergies that sprout...
In general you can move a lot more when the weather turns to spring. No more being stuck inside, now we get to go on walks, bike rides, and runs. I am 10 times more active in the summer (I also eat 10 times as much ice cream) but the weather really allows people to get back into shape. So take advantage of it!
What are your favorite things about spring?!
