I absolutely love this time of year! The changing from one season to the next is exciting to me. Each fresh season has its perks. Spring is the time of year that stuff starts to come back to life! Flowers bloom, people get out of their houses more, the sun shines bright but the air still has a slight crispness to it, it is acceptable to wear flip flops, grilling is a must, and there is just an overall feel of new life and freshness. Spring is just good for the soul!

Another perk is the Farmers’ Markets that we have here in East Texas!

Nothing beats heading down to a local Farmers’ Market on a lazy Saturday morning to enjoy a cup of coffee and shop the fresh fruits, veggies, flowers, bread, and other hand crafted items. Below are a few in the area that you can enjoy!
