“I was contemplating how to navigate this first Christmas without gift ideas last Saturday morning as I drove to work at the Winter Market. I began replaying the year in my head and looking for the small moments of joy my husband and I had shared together. I was certain in those small moments of happiness I would find an idea of what to give him this Christmas.” Read about finding small joys and simple gifts this Christmas from Shauna Cook, blog writer and AmeriCorps VISTA member at Farm Fresh RI.
Tis the season for sharing warmth, comfort, and tasty food with your loved ones. Choose a fresh food gift, and spread the joy of the local harvest!
