Spring has finally sprung! (The first official day of spring was actually on the 20th.)
There is so much I look forward to in the spring– like watching the beautiful cherry blossoms go into full bloom.
Not to mention, getting to ditch coats and boots for cute bangles and wedges,
dining outside, longer days, more energy, getting that healthy glow back to my skin, playing tennis, yoga on the rooftop and the list goes on!
But one of my ultimate favorite things to do is shop and visit my local farmers market.
Yesterday was the re-opening of the Penn Quarter FRESHFARM Market farmers market.
