It's that time of the year!


My little heart SWOONED when we moved to the Pacific Northwest and I learned of the berry picking available.  Cherries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries... I could go on and on.

Naturally, it's Strawberry season right now so I begged my beloved fiance to spend a Sunday berry picking with me. 

Here are the things I learned/observed:
  1. I'm convinced the Hood River strawberries are laced with sugar.
  2. Strawberry picking requires patience.  Not because you have to sort through the bushes to find the beautiful yummies, but because you have to wait until you're home to wash the dirt from the berries!  Boo to no instant gratification.
  3. As macho as your manfriend may be, put a fresh berry in his hand and he'll turn giddy about berry picking too.
  4. Don't wear white shorts to berry picking.  Lesson learned.


  1. i want to go berry picking!! maybe we should plan a family trip just to pick berries :-) they seriously look so so good

  2. haha white shorts was probably not the best idea! but yay for strawberries we picked up a crate the other day at the farmer's market and they were delish
