Strawberry Time

Living in the south is fun because you always have something to look at that is pretty, and there is usually always something to do.

For instance for Mother's Day we took a drive and passed a grove of Magnolia trees that were in full bloom. After our drive we went out to a strawberry farm and picked berries. We picked 18 pounds and carried them out of the field (we ate 10 pounds in the field...It was encouraged!) and then came home and took a siesta! The great things about strawberry time is that there aren't any bugs out yet and the weather was awesome...A mere 71 degrees!

This was a fun Mother's Day for me, hanging out and picking berries with 3 of my favorite people.

Now, for the next few weeks, I may be sounding like the guy on Forest Gump: Strawberry short cake, strawberry pie, strawberry smoothies, strawberry bread...

La Vida Dulce!
