Self-Improvement Saturday(s)

I have been looking forward to a neighborly outing to Echo Hill County Store now for a month! A few Saturday's ago we got up bright and early (in typical market-going-fashion of course) and I picked up my Centre Park compadres and hit the sunny road to Fleetwood. Echo Hill has been at the top of my "places to visit" for some time now and it totally lived up to my expectation (whew!).

I had a moment of geeking out and simultaneously experiencing a panic attack when I entered. I was so overwhelmed by all the amazing products and felt like just saying "I'll take one of each" and calling it day. Luckily, the neighbors came to the rescue and I was able to meander through the isles of bulk goodness pouring over the labels, chatting up Echo Hill veterans who cook and bake with these products everyday and discovering raw milk! It's no secret I love food and recently I've taken to eating and cooking with cleaner, whole foods in a attempt to better take care of myself - which turns out is a full time job! [dry-roasted almond butter, no-salt lemon pepper seasoning, light agave nectar, chia seeds, flax seeds, organic white quinoa, muesli, wooden cheese box ]

Obviously all this self-care and healthy food shopping can really work up an appetite. So with our new goods in tow, we headed back into to town (Fleetwood) and I was able to check another item off my list: breakfast at Simmeria!
Again, I was not disappointed. Great ambiance, good coffee and a menu to please all taste buds (plus healthy and delicious options!) we soaked up all the a good Saturday morning should be - with lots a laughs and great conversation in between mouthfuls of breakfast tacos and oatmeal. Thus, Self-Improvement Saturdays were born. Happy Monday! Maybe make some plans to enjoy this morning road trip this coming weekend? x x christin
