Well, that took a turn…

Daily Diversion #393: North Market Morning

My husband has been out-of-town on business a lot (aka, our new normal). He’s home two days a week, gone for five. Rinse, repeat. We’re trying to do as much fun stuff as possible during each “weekend” (actually two weekdays off back-to-back). 

This morning we headed to the North Market, which is close to where we live (and even closer to my day job). We ate breakfast, which was immediately followed by lunch. Because, duh. 

Hot bevvies from Stauf’s NM outpost; donuts courtesy of Destination Donuts; and delicious Nepalese food from nationally acclaimed hot spot Momo Ghar.
