Busy Lizzie... wait a minute...

As a child, I was given the nickname "busy Lizzie" (among others)... I think Eden is following suite. She has gotten quite busy lately and it into EVERYTHING! It is amazing how quickly she can get from one spot to another. Her newest facination is doors. She loves them. It doesn't matter what form it takes: bathroom door, bedroom door, cabinet door, front door, door on a toy... you name it, it could keep her entertained for a while! Only once has she closed herself in her room when I was on the outside and then sat behind the door for quite a few minutes before she finally moved and I could get in!

Two weeks ago, we spent the afternoon at Vollmer Farms and picked a HUGE bucket of strawberries. It was such a great way to spend the afternoon and we all got our fill of strawberries, including Eden.

I ended up freezing most of the ones we brought home - 4 - 1 quart bags to be exact. I have a feeling they're not going to last long though once I purchased this new attachment for my KitchenAide... we had homemade Strawberry Ice a few nights ago and it was so yummy. I even let Eden have some and she was instantly a fan! (Organic strawberries, sugar and water... ingredients for dessert I can feel good about!)

Check out the shop... I'm having a YART SALE (no, I did not come up with that name)... its an etsy-wide event and I decided to take part to get rid of some of my stock before we move (details soon).  ENTIRE shop has frees shipping until 6/14.
