As Danielle from Body by Nature said ‘we’ve known each other for longer then we haven’t known each other’. It’s funny to think like that but it’s true. The other day we tried to figure out when it was exactly that we met and from what both of our fuzzy memories can remember it was way back in grade 1. Friendship is a funny thing, constantly changing and growing and sometimes even growing apart before coming back together and being stronger than ever.

On Saturdays the whole place livens up and the North building fills up with farm fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, breads, etc. I clued into the Saturday market when I was driving by a few weeks ago and saw produce lined up along the outside of the building. Of course at that point I wanted to forget all about my appointment in favour of strolling through and finding the freshest vegetables and juiciest apples I could. I settled for vowing to myself that I’d make it to the market the next Saturday… little did I know that it would turn into every Saturday since.

I may not have found out about the market till late in the season but I’ve certainly made up for lost time. Our fridge has been so crammed full you’d think that I was preparing for a siege.
