Florida Grown - Find Beauty Friday

I was ecstatic when Aimee over at Click. Pray. Create. asked me to co-host this week's Find Beauty Friday Link-up! I've been linking up with her over the past few weeks. I'm so glad I found her blog. Find Beauty Friday is about taking the time to notice everyday beauty and capturing it. The link-up allows you to see what other bloggers have been up to and maybe make some new friends!
This past weekend we went strawberry picking. You'd figure a Florida girl like me who lives just an hour from Plant City (where the annual Strawberry Festival is held) would have done this before. Nope-this was new to me. What an experience. Everyone enjoyed it, even Mr. Wonderful who doesn't like strawberries (strange I know).
We tried coordinating our trip with long time friend Heather and her mom, Ms. Nancy (she was my sitter when I was younger, so she will always be Ms. Nancy to me), but it was a little difficult planning it last minute. Luckily the stars aligned and our paths crossed. I'm glad our moms got to see each other, and I'm looking forward to planning a girls date with them soon.

Come back next week for some homemade strawberry jam yumminess.

Join in the fun by link up your bits of beauty, and be sure to head on over to Click. Pray. Create. to check out Aimee and all of her awesomeness.
