My parents were visiting for a few weeks from the Dominican Republic and we went strawberry picking during their visit. What an amazing day that was! I loved watching Little L devour every single strawberry that crossed her way and it was really nice to see my parents share this moment with her. It simply was a great family time picking fresh strawberries out of the bushes.
While I would love to recreate that wonderful time again, I can’t. Strawberry picking, in my area, is an early summer activity, so all I can do now is find use for the buckets of strawberries that I froze from that day. Something I have learned over the years is that life is dynamic and there will be a time for everything. There will be times, like that awesome afternoon, that we would like to hold on tight to, but life needs to keep on its course and all we can do is embrace today. That is why I am toasting to all the good times had with this Berry Sexy Vanilla Sunrise today! I am taking advantage of the frozen strawberries by whipping up an easy and delicious drink. I can’t think of a better way of embracing today than this. Cheers!
