thankful thursday

This Thursday I am thankful for:

1) Parental visits. Yep, Mom & Dad are making their way from Houston to Louisville to check out our new digs. We have lots of fun activities planned for the weekend... including (but not limited to), a trip to the farmer's market, dinner at the Captain's Quarters, lunch and shopping in Bardstown, and a tour of Churchill Downs!

2) Falling leaves. I love the beginning of fall. When the leaves are transforming into brilliant colors, and slowly making their way to the ground. They seem to fall as if they have all the time in the world... just floating and twirling. I love that.

3) Farmer's markets. We made our first trip this past weekend and came home with cherry tomatoes, deliciously ripe peaches, the best cheese spread ever, and some flowers. I love the idea of farm-to-kitchen. Sadly, this particular farmer's market only has two weekends left. We will be going both weekends.
