Happy Canada Day, eh?

In celebration of Canada my husband, Kevin, myself and two of our friends went out and picked strawberries, and boy did we ever have a glorious day for it! If you've never picked strawberries before, it is quite a lovely experience! You pay for the strawberries you take home, but while you're out in the fields you are welcome to eat as many berries as you can!

We ended up leaving with 5 cartons of fresh strawberries. The car smelled like fresh fruit all the way home. When we got home we cleaned all of them and divided them into the "eat now" and "freeze for later" categories so we can be sure to have some fruit for during the long winter months.

Here are some pictures from our beautiful Canada Day!

If you don't live near a u-pick strawberry farm, here are some lovely strawberry inspired creations from some very talented Etsy creators

  1. I remember taking my kiddos to pick strawberries when they were small. I should head out and pick a few now! They are unbelievably great straight from the patch. :) Have a great weekend.

  2. We have really been enjoying berry season, too. What a wonderful way to spend a day. Great etsy items!


  3. WOW!!!! What a fantastic experience! I've been to a blueberry farm, but not strawberry farm, it must have been very fun!! :)

    Thanks a lot for featuring my work too! And Happy Canada Day, althought I'm late ♥
