I love strawberries. Love love love! They are one of the most versatile berries, scrumptious in pretty much anything- muffins, pies, syrups, sauces, jams, jellies, chocolate-covered, cakes, or just plain. I was lucky enough to score 3 baskets of the tastiest organic strawberries I’ve ever had (no joke, these were amazingly sweet and stayed fresh so long) for just 5 bucks at the farmer’s market. That was Thursday and I’m already down to a basket and a half. Can you really blame me, though? They are such an irresistible treat when dipped in natural sugar. I’m such a little strawberry snacker!
Today was the first rain of the season, which pretty much made my day. The smell of fresh rain on a dreary, overcast day- indescribably wonderful. As much as I’m enjoying the newness of this cold weather, I can guarantee I will be aching for the sun again in about a month. But, at least for now cold weather means cozy, warm clothes- my large collection of scarves is just aching to be taken out of storage to brave those Santa Ana winds. And I get to dig out my beautiful trench coats from the back of my closet. Needless to say, I am so ready for winter.
To top off it all, I might be going to Paris this next January! It’s all so exciting… I hope everyone is having an amazing day because I know I am!
