{Evidence of a Great Weekend}

Overall I had a really nice weekend - full of relaxation, shopping, photography, and food! I've been hearing amazing things about Market Restaurant and this weekend me and the girls decided to try it out. They only serve local, fresh {we actually saw our waiter go outside to clip a few sprigs of basil and cilantro from the garden outside}, and unprocessed foods and the menu is ever-changing, determined by the area’s seasonal variations. The one constant you can definitely depend on is the simplicity of each dish, focused on making sure the natural flavors shine through with each bite. If you live in the Raleigh area ~ I beg you to try it out!

Market Restaurant Raleigh 2
We returned these plates back to our waiter clean enough to put back on the shelf. Everything was so delicious, so fresh, so flavorful....I can't wait to go back! To see the full lunch and dinner menus - click here.

Photography Class
I had a photography class on Saturday with the Triangle Photography Club and we had a fantastic time. We started at the Natural Science Art Museum and worked our way down Fayetteville Street practicing taking pictures after dusk. I still have a lot to learn about lighting, but I'm definitely making progress {trying not to get frustrated in the process}.

Photography Class 2
There was a vintage car show downtown this weekend and the above pics are a couple that I took - below are a few others...
