my oldest friend nej recently came to visit with her beautiful family. we spent loads of time together. the kids got reacquainted. i got to meet and snuggle with her newest little peanut clara. we had a girls night out! i wish she would come back!! on their last day here we drove out to where they were staying and visited coonamessett farm, one of the most magical places on the cape::
nej's oldest, laila, was born a week after ellie. here they are, munching freshly picked strawberries and discussing the chickens::
speaking of those strawberries, they were amazing. warm from the sun, sweeter than sweet and drippingly juicy::
i dreamt up a handful of things i could do with them, but they were nearly gone by the time we got back to our kitchen. oh well, there's always blueberry season.
