I was chatting with my Bestie just last week about friendship and the amount of resources it takes to keep those relationships afloat and flourishing, and I have been thinking about it ever since.

Bountiful Baskets: This Vegas Blog Hearts My Co-Op

For the last few months, I have been a regular contributor of a produce cooperative called Bountiful Baskets. On Monday afternoon, I log onto their website, pick my location and make my selections for that week. And then I wait. By the time Saturday morning finally arrives, I am SO excited to find out what kind of yummy goodness is in store for me. More often than not, however, I
