Hope you guys had a great weekend! We had a super relaxing long weekend in Santa Barbara for our mini babymoon {pics to come this week}. I spent the time without my computer, didn't check email, and had no set plans or agenda...tough for a self-employed Type A...but so so needed. We stopped by the Santa Barbara Farmer's Market on Saturday, and I was excited to find some Yellow Barhi Dates from Flying Disc Ranch. They're only in season from September to November so it's been a year since I last enjoyed some. Picked at an earlier stage—before they have the chance to turn brown and dry—the crunchy dates taste like a mix of an apple and coconut with a bit of bitterness. They're crunchy, sweet, and delicious... — Joy
