living is easy with eyes closed

here are some photos from our wonderful strawberry picking adventure in alvin, tx this weekend!


it was such a wonderful time! we ended up picking about 35 lbs; about 5 lbs to each bucket. the fields were so lush and even though the farm's "parking" area was packed, there was enough room for everyone to roam and plenty of beautiful red, ripe strawberries for picking.

this was my first time to ever go strawberry picking and i couldn't ask for better company. what a splendid addition to an already spectacular girls weekend.

The first strawberry I ever had came from a patch just like these and my dad's mom gave it to me...so that whenever I have one now I think of her. I love that fruit!
