I am, of course, not amazed at the fact that I have not posted in over three weeks. Recently, I visited my best friend and college roommate of the past two years who lives outside Grand Rapids, MI. I just recently returned from Oxford, England, where I was so happy to study, and it was exactly the mini-vacation I needed in the United States. No assigned reading, no responsibilities, simply a time to be.
While there is so much to say about our time together, we spent it camping with her wonderful grandparents. I brought way too many vegetables from my grandpa and parent's garden in Indiana. We had eggplant on the grill, corn on the cob, all of the yummy vegetables that make me absolutely love summer.
We also went to downtown Holland to enjoy the most wonderful Farmer's Market. Now in Indiana, I'm sure we have Farmer Market's, I just don't even go because I have a lot of organic veggies at my fingertips. However, I could live in a Farmer's Market. I mean it, I hope that someday I'll be able to go set up a booth of some farmed delicious, and simply meet, talk to others in the community. It is a good thing, a very good thing.
