don't these photos just scream summer? they make me happy. these are all related to my new favorite place, to which i am already looking forward to going back to this saturday -- Eastern Market in Detroit.
1 | beautiful flats being sold for dirt cheap 2 | a gorgeous bouquet my friend picked up. sadly, i had already ran out of cash at that point. maybe this weekend! 3 | a beautiful little succulent i picked up for only $1.25!! they had such a beautiful selection.. and a large pot of them for $7! i couldn't believe it, it was gorgeous. 4 | caprese salad i made upon my return with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and a garlic & herb olive oil dressing, all from the market!!
i'm finding that my grocery list is dwindling thanks to this wonderful place. this weekend, i hope to pick up some fresh meat too. it feels so.good. to be supporting local farmers and businesses and getting the freshest produce possible (until my little garden starts growing edible things!). it aligns so perfectly with my new healthy ways, which i will be sharing more about soon.
hope you are all having a great start to the week! mine started off rough (as those who follow me on twitter may know), but thanks to your prayers, encouragement from my hubby and parents, and some time reflecting and talking to the One who gave me life, i am feeling 110% better. i am reminded that God is always in control (how do i so often forget his faithfulness) and that my contentment should never be controlled by my circumstances (i.e. finances in this case), but in my identity in Christ. can i get an amen?
