    This one was easy because we're staying local and vacationing in Cannon Beach, Oregon for my birthday. We booked a local hotel instead of a chain and found some local restaurants and a spa. 
  • Reflection Question

    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    Ugh, so many on the Dirty Dozen list are my favorites! I had no idea. Time to research if I can eat them in a more healthy manner, maybe buying local at a smaller farm?
