Chilly sweater mornings with warm (almost hot) afternoons. Watermelon and pumpkins?! The best of both worlds, really. I celebrated my 30th birthday yesterday with books, siblings, music shopping, and a big ol’ bacon cheeseburger (#notvegan) – but now, looking at these images I took of Eugene’s Tuesday Farmers market is getting me wildly excited to veg out (literally with vegetables) again.
