a taste of home


When your adult home is thousands of miles away from your childhood home, every little reminder of home is special.


Precisely why I picked up these Rainier Cherries when I saw them at the store last week. No, they're not local. They're home grown. Lawman loved my thoughtfulness.

Yummmm. Those are the best cherries in the world! A couple of years I bought some at a farmer's market in Estes Park. I ate the whole bag...and made myself sick. So worth it though. :)

i have such fond memories of summertime foods from childhood, too - ears of sweet michigan corn my mom and i would pick together from the farm down the road, for one...darn that bittersweet nostalgia :)
