I remember, as a kid, walking down to the country store in the our small town without a worry in the world.  I'd buy small boxes of Lemonheads or a few Swedish Fish and skip my way home.  Those were the days, right?

I was surprised when I went to Cucina Fresca in downtown Elko, NV to do this shoot to find that same hometown feel and memory coming back to me.  It was warm, friendly, cute--seriously, check this out--

(they're flavored honey straws!  who knew?!) and filled with all sorts of little treasures.  Need a gadget?  Just ask their awesome staff.  Need your knives sharpened?  It's $1 knife right now--and I don't know if this was just a fluke, but I swear sharp blades = tear free onion slicing.  It was nice not to cry buckets over onions, that's all I'm sayin'.  

Check out what a fun day we had!
