fruits of the season

Thursday, July 21, 2016

pick your own blueberries! blackberries! and flowers!!  well, you know my heart almost couldn't handle all the happiness it was experiencing. an afternoon of berry picking always includes stained hands and finding shade under the blueberry bushes. but also memories from when I was little, and that cute boy with curly blonde hair who we found sitting under the blueberries mouth and tshirt stained blue.  I vow to be that mom one day, who takes her kids blueberry picking even in the dead heat of summer; and finds the fun and magic in it, even through the whining.

sending a pie to my mom, for the traditions and sacred memories she so unintentionally bestowed on me.

and now all the jam and pies.
