Of Olives, Vinegar, & Online Learning

I’m SO excited to share this with you guys! Gene and I visited Greenville, South Carolina earlier this year–BC, Before COVID–and we discovered their local Oil & Vinegar shop. I immediately fell in love with it. I didn’t know much at all about olive oils or vinegar, and/but I love learning new things! The gentleman working that day (I think his name was Robert) was kind, friendly, and incredibly helpful.  He guided us through the shop and suggested some oils…

Yes, they’ll need to be home-centric.  That’s okay.  Home is…
