Harvesting our breakfast

This morning’s breakfast included a handful of juicy, sweet peaches, picked fresh from our tree. It’s our first summer receiving fruit from this tree, so we’re especially thrilled for each lovely bit. Today’s #OneGoodThing was harvesting breakfast with Mama! Day 196 of 365. And Day 927 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: Surrounded…

Wealth of summer fruit

Today’s #OneGoodThing was going to the farmers’ market and bringing home this beautiful, tasty sampling of apricots, apri-plums, and cherries. Mama and I adore summer fruit, and today’s bounty was heavenly! Plus, we loved getting to see our friends at the market — lots of smiles and hugs all around! Day 174 of 365. And Day 905 in…

That’s right, we planted our absolute favorite fruit to grow in our backyard! Mama and I been obsessed with this particular plum variety…

But today we went because we’ve been craving fresh, local fruit and we wanted to see our favorite vendors. We bundled…

Fast errands & fabulous fruit

Today’s #OneGoodThing was shockingly fast errands that normally take forever (think DMV and hospital lab). The other best part of the day was discovering some of our absolute favorite summer fruits at the market. We enjoyed bowls of cherries, apache apricots, and cotton candy grapes! They were glorious! Summer fruits are our favorite food group. The…

Strawberries at last

We have been aching for summer fruit, but it’s just not available where we live yet. This winter feels too long (and we don’t even get snow here). Anyway, on my regular Friday grocery shopping trip today, these glorious strawberries were finally sweet and ripe! It’s like fruit telling us, “hold on, better things are…
