Every May, one of our favorite traditions (now in year 5!) is to go Strawberry picking at Higsons Farm in Wiley Ford, WV
We take home about 10lb of the sweetest, juciest strawberries you’ll ever taste! They sell them by the quart, but it is way more fun to pick our own.
This is the first year that Olive has been into it. I knew before we went that I would want to grab a few photos of my sweet girl. If you know anything about her… well, you know that this was not easy. She is a strong willed little girl! But still, we threw on some overalls and headed out. I considered wiped the yuck from her dirty toddler face, but decided it fit the strawberry farmer feel… and it is so Olive to have a grubby little face.
I also learned this week that it is more important now than ever to slow down to capture moments that seem so ordinary. We spent Saturday with my grandparents, and it donned on me that life is flying by at an alarming rate. I have to remember to capture them and hold onto them tight. I don’t want to be the mom that never lives in the moment, but rather through the screen of my phone set to Camera… but I also want to be able to look back and remember these days, as these are the best of my life.
