in the midst of 100+ degree weather and multiple forms of chaos occurring in our family, we decided to take our little family to a berry patch.
i know i’ve mentioned several times how blessed i feel to have so many vineyards and orchards surrounding us here in virginia. we’ve hit many of them in the past couple of years, though this was our first time to pick blackberries.
something about fresh berries calls for something comforting and easy. this morning, that meant a simple cobbler. honestly, we ate it for breakfast. and we’re just about to have some more for dessert.
so while things are hot and busy and, at times, very stressful, sometimes it’s good to take a break with family and dig in to something fresh and sweet…
next stop… peach orchard.
