Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!! If you're planning to partake in the consumption of alcohol this New Year's, be sure to designate a driver or take a cab. Whatever you do, please stay off the roads. May 2014 be a wonderful year for us all!

Harvest Season

Apples, apples, apples! Although available around the country, I was introduced to the Pink Lady apple for the first time when I moved to North Carolina. Now, there is no other apple for me. I have been spoiled by its sweet, crisp taste. It costs a little more than the standard apple, but well worth it.

Vespertine / This & That

VESPERTINE and THIS & THAT are two fun gift shops that share an entryway in Carrboro. 

Each store has its own vibe, both are worth a visit. You can find local artists and crafters represented here. The staff is friendly and a great source of information about the neighborhood. Vespertine (above) and This and That (below).
