I don’t know where my head was the day I took Olivia to Rittman Orchards to pick strawberries…I forgot my camera! I’ve been wanting to make freezer jam the way my Grandma used to do, so I thought this year would be the time to start a new tradition with Livvy, especially because strawberries are by far her favorite fruit. If only I’d captured the images of her running between the strawberry bushes; biting into a juicy, ripe berry and dribbling juice down her jacket; and helping me put the fruit in my basket (for some reason, she only picked the unripe, tiny white ones). At least I’m documenting the day here so I won’t forget it. We had such a good time, though, that I think it will become a yearly outing each June.
