We are back and married!

What I can show you is the minimoon in WV!!!
We rented a cabin in Lost River, West Virginia. Thankfully we stopped in MD for groceries otherwise we would have starved. Everything in Lost River is closed from Monday – Thursday. It was kind of a bummer not to be able to get a genuine WV souvenir, but we still got pictures!
Our lovely porch that we spent a lot of time on.
We did not have TV but we did have internet – Nick would have been lost for fantasy football without it. Nice office view.
First meal! Eggplant, cauliflower, onion, homemade garlic toast in a fiery pasta sauce. We made really simple meals while we were there because ingredients were limited.
Our best hike! Half way up Nick left a note in the shelter’s notebook.
I even made a fire!
We will always remember 695 Toms Knob Approach!
Today was another special day in my wedding world! My coworkers (especially Elaine and Debbie) put together a really thoughtful shower for me.
They tied in the bunting that we are having at the wedding, all of the baked goods were homemade with all real ingredients including organic pumpkin and zucchini!
I sampled everything! Pumpkin coffee bar with chocolate chips, zucchini ginger bread with hazelnuts, apple blackberry cobbler, angel cake and fruit salad.
Elaine even made signs so people would recycle but it didn’t really happen Thanks for trying!
The entire event was very special, no spotlight and just hanging out with lots of interesting advice.
Yes, were were mocking the skinny arm here!
I am going to make this addition of Farmers Market Tuesday short because I have been up since 4:45AM and to Lancaster and back. I know lasts week’s was short but we are in wedding crunch time and things are cray cray in crunch time.
If you have not enjoyed a summer peach or stone fruit, get on it. They are leaving soon and it is sad. The week of rain we just had killed a lot of the tomatoes too, so get on those too.
One peach and one nectarine. Fuzz vs. no fuzz.
Nectarine = winner!!!
Besides hitting up the farmers market, I checked on our growing wedding flowers, had my final walk through at Rock Ford (which got me flusters because there were so many details coming at me fast…), 2+ hour in the car annnnnd my final hair cut and color!
I also threw in a 6:30AM yoga class just because I was already awake so why not?
Final sprit woot woot!!
Just stopping in for a quick Farmer’s Market Tuesday!
Can you guess what this is?
It is used in a lot of Asian dishes and has great medicinal properties such as a digestive aid.
It is fresh ginger!!! I had never seen this stuff before so I had to grab some. I didn’t have time to make anything super special with it so I just grated a little bit over my soup last night. It has an amazing fresh taste to it and is not as concentrated as its brown scabbed over ginger cousin.
