Strawberry Fields

May 27, 2015

The bump is out of the bag! And it feels SO good! Husband and I are lucky to get to share it with our people and community. You all had the kindest words for us and made our day so darn special. Thank you for that! Hitting the 'publish' button on yesterday's post was super exciting for me, and it made this pregnancy feel so real. I am fully feeling the world of excitement around me for what is to come! I can't begin to tell you how much joy it fills me with. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to sharing this pregnancy journey here! 

Now for some delicious strawberries! On Saturday, husband and started the day off with cinnamon rolls (and again on Monday) then packed into the car with my sister and mom to drive the hour and five minute trip to the strawberry fields. We've kind of decided it's one of our Memorial Day weekend traditions. Since last year's trip was so fun, there was no question going this year too. 

We picked to our hearts' content, filling our buckets rather quickly. I didn't make any plans for making anything with these strawberries because husband always gobbles them up too fast. Maybe one day I'll make something with fresh strawberries, but for now I'm happy to see husband enjoy them so much. 

Aren't they beautiful? There's something about fresh fruit straight from the source. I feel like heaven will be like that...full of fruits and vegetables that we get to enjoy right away in their freshest state. Sounds lovely, right?

I'd say our adventure was a huge success. We walked away with a ton of strawberries and some memories made. What more could you ask for. If you're in the area you should definitely check out Scott's Strawberry Farm. See ya'll back here tomorrow! 

p.s. How awesome is it that we're already mid-way through the work week, yet we've only worked one full day?! Three-day weekend rules!
