Hugs from my friendly grocers

Tom mans the register at Oliver’s with a smile and plenty of cute dog pics

Friday is frequently my grocery day, and over the last few years, I’ve gotten to know many of the staff at my local organic market.

Though it qualifies as an errand, these lovely people make it enjoyable. From Robert, who suggests new cheeses we’d enjoy, to Dillon, who gives us the inside scoop on the best produce in season. And there’s sweet Elia, who calls me “mi amiga” as she gives me a big hug and asks how Mama is doing.

Once I’ve gotten my step count, I mean finished shopping, I don’t search out the shortest line. Rather, I look for my favorite friendly faces. Seriously. I have waited in line despite an adjacent open register, just to go through Tom’s checkout line. I love that I always get to see photos of his beautiful dog Jake while I’m paying, and of course, I share the latest pics of Paisley. Tom is such a sweetheart and the inspiration behind today’s #OneGoodThingWhat was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments!
