a really nice day

I had a really great Moms day.

We went strawberry picking at Swanton Berry Farm, had a picnic, and then indulged in their amazingly delectable farm stand desserts. The little man and I got strawberry shortcake. Pat got a chocolate cheesecake brownie with a chocolate covered strawberry on top…both options were heavenly. Pat captured these awesome shots that I’m completely in love with…I am so happy that he will be second shooting for me this summer. He’s gonna make me look good!

Happy berry season to you all…it is here!

      Thank you, Jefra! My husband took these and I love them also.

      I have been really enjoying your beautiful photography and your blog in general. I love how your images seem to transport me to another time and place, so refreshing. I hope that you are having a wonderful summer!
