First... a bit of a confession - We grew up just a block away from the rodeo grounds in Salinas, and as you can imagine this month's theme is near and dear to our hearts. It was fun to learn more about this staple in Salinas' culture and to open back up the memories of childhood. The scent of eucalyptus, the mention of concerts, horses, and parades... ah... heaven. We hope our subscribers enjoyed this month's box as much as we did putting it together.
