This edition's guest curator: Roxy Garrity

About Roxy: I am a full-time mom of a spirited toddler and freelance creative media professional currently managing content at Fun 4 Raleigh Kids. 

Morning: You can likely find us at a Wake County Libraries storytime. On the way home, we'll stop by the State Farmer's market. I love supporting local farmers and eating what's in season. 

Lunch: Transfer Food Hall. Right now their vendor Bul Box has my favorite poke bowl. If I'm meeting up with friends there's enough variety at this food hall to satisfy everyone's cravings. 

Late afternoon: Weather permitting we'll hit up one of the many amazing parks in the area. Lately, it's been Lake Wheeler, because of the new Howling Cow Creamery that's nearby. My toddler is currently obsessed with ice cream, but seriously who isn't? You can literally see the cows from the porch of this creamery so you know it's fresh!
Dinner: I usually cook and I'm a huge fan of the Instant Pot for quick and healthy dinners. If Nana happens to be available to babysit I'll usually head downtown, where my husband works, for happy hour or dinner. Our go-to's are O-Ku and Poole'side Pies 

Evening: If we're going for a Parent's Night Out I like the ambiance of Aunty Betty's and Vita Vite. Bonus points if there's a cool band playing at the Red Hat Amphitheatre. I'm a huge fan of live music and this is a great outdoor venue.
