[a berry day]

Today we ventured off to one of my favorite little corners of the earth, Queens Berry Farm.  I've been there a couple of times before while visiting my grandparents, and quite simply I'm in love with it. Everything is ever-so-slightly overgrown, the paint chipped off most of the buildings, and the sound of chickens provides the perfect soundtrack for a hot afternoon picking berries. My grandma, cousin, uncle, and I picked raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries until we about melted in the heat, and bought fresh basil and some rhubarb to make pie with! How I wish I could just move there and spend my days picking berries against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains...pictures just don't do it justice!

Two more weeks till California! So much love friends :]
