Today was my very favorite run called I’m Trying. I wrote about it last year because it was my first 5k ever. Take a moment to read the story of how the road race came to be and who it honors. My reason for trying is, of course, my mother who has been battling cancer for three years now.
Maybe it was my lavender in bloom? Or maybe it was knowing that my foodie friend was coming over? The anticipation of a south end date that same night? (B&G Oysters by the way – delish!) Or the fact that I absolutely love cooking and tend to want to try new recipes on the weekend? I needed a snack to take to an outing at the beach with friends this past weekend and I didn’t want to just throw a bag of chips in the beach bag, so I made crêpes for the first time.
This weekend, we celebrated Father’s Day and my mother’s 60th birthday. Anderson and I went with his grammy and papa to visit a little slice of heaven today: Mayfair Farm in Harrisville, NH. This sustainable farm has tons of treasures, such as a greenhouse full of veggies, orchards, strawberries (almost ready to pick!), piglets, cows, sheep, and today’s favorite by far: very free range chickens. By free range, I mean they run wherever they please – as all chickens should.
