We love to travel, but that is not new. Sometimes it is vacation days filled with fun and sun. Other times we just go to visit family in different parts of the country. A couple of weekends ago we did just that. We went to Rockford, IL to visit our son Tyler and his girlfriend, Abby. They have just recently bought their first home and we went to see it for the 1st time! It is a 10-hour drive from here in Tennessee to Rockford. We travel through Missouri’s bootheel to St. Louis and cross into Illinois there. We crisscross the Mississippi River a few times in the days’ travels. …
Look what we came home with the other morning!! Here in West Tennessee, we have local Farmer’s Markets open this time of year. On Saturday morning one of our favorite things to do is to venture off to one of them. Buying healthy wares and getting a good walk in the cool of the morning is really fun. Especially when the Tennessee heat gets so bad in the afternoon!
