Much to my husband's surprise, wake up call was 7am on Saturday morning. Every Wed & Sat is the Cowtown Farmer's Market in Ft Worth, TX. I had gone there last Wed but was only mildly impressed. I assume there is not much traffic in the middle of the week so...being the second chance type of girl, I hooked my husband up to his caffeine IV and away we went. I just had to be there when it opened at 8am for fear I might miss something. Funny Man was such a good sport! I think he actually enjoyed our little adventure :)
This place has everything you can imagine: fresh baked bread, coffee, produce, soap, cheese, flowers, even doggie treats! As some of you know, we are still in the process of moving so we only bought a few things. We bought bread from Artisan Baking Co. (I found them online at Twitter in turn finding CFM). Their biscotti brought tears to my eyes! It's seriously that good! We bought Chevre cheese from Dairy De Latte, and Dolly's Jellies Chow Chow Relish. I can't wait to get my house next month so I can start using more of these beautiful items. You can really tell the difference between what you buy in a store compared to the Farmer's Market. You can taste the love & hard work they've put in it, I think.
It was a lot of fun exploring our new city, meeting new folks, and finding such an awesome local market to buy healthy things for my family to eat. I know I will be there every Saturday! So, hook you hubby up to that IV, the kids will have fun too, or just go it alone, but join the locavore movement and visit Cowtown Farmer's Market! You'll just feel better you are helping the local farmers and that you know what you are putting in your families bodies are healthy! See you there!

Did I tell you? I've been searching for things to do here in Ft Worth while "Funny Man" earns our living. He is so good to us! In my search, I stumbled upon the Kimball Art Museum and it just so happens they had a special Renaissance (my favorite) exhibit! It's over now, as I barely made it, but what a wonderful day I spent and it just so happen to have been a rainy day so it worked out great! If you're ever in town, visit the Kimball or go online at kimballart.org
The whole exhibit was about betrothel, marriage, and childbirth during the renaissance period. Oh, the beauty of Art & Love combined!

Ok, so initially I was turned off by the title, as any arrogant American would. "What's so great about French women, anyway?" A lot actually, it seems. Visit the website and find out why.
On April 21, 2009, President Obama signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, a bold expansion of opportunities for all Americans to serve their communities and our country. During a time of almost unprecedented challenges it is critical that we all work together, the government alone cannot fix everything. Working together in a sustained, collaborative effort, we can harness our greatest resource, our people, and change the course of history.
This website is a new portal for you and all Americans to find your own ways to serve in your own communities. Just choose your keyword - "education," "environment," or whatever interests you - and type in your zip code to see what opportunities our partner organizations have in your area. Americans are putting their own country back on the right track, be a part of it.
