>Indie Weekend- give someone a hug today

22 Jan

This weekend is going to be amazing , i just need to keep telling myself that. I’m awake but not willingly as the girl child needed applesauce or she would ‘melt’ and i needed to work up the energy to pick up my very first food share from crossroads co-op. yay! The amazing assortment of fresh foods and my afternoon cocktails with some rad Ogden mamas are definitely going to make up for my current state of delirium.

So lets get on with it! With all the buzz surrounding park city and Sundance i think its a good time to remind everyone why Ogden rules.

UPDATE- I’m sweaty and lightheaded from my bike excursion and currently enjoying a tall cold glass off fresh pressed local apple cider. Oh! The bike ride was worth it indeed. It always takes a bit for me to get motivated to bike downtown, the ride there is always so blissful with the wind whipping in my hair and whizzing in my ears. But as with all good things it must be balanced my something dreadful. I am lucky enough to live at the base of beautiful mountains , breathtaking views are a norm and i am just a short walk from mountain trail but biking home is agony. But i choose bike i always feel really good once I’ve recovered from the initial exhaustion.

Here is a little info on the community food co-op of Utah:
