Picking Berries at the Strawberry Patch

"It is the sweet, simple things of life 
which are the real ones after all." 
— Laura Ingalls Wilder

We got up early this morning to go pick strawberries with friends! 🍓🍓🍓

"Live in each season as it passes: 
breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit."
— Henry David Thoreau

The girls helped bake this Naturally Sweetened Fresh Strawberry Pie for dessert with some of our strawberries. We are hoping to go pick more to freeze sometime soon... We'll see! 

(I also just ordered a copy of Strawberry Girl to read this week too!)
