Charleston Strawberry Picking

In October we went pumpkin picking at Boone Hall Farms, and we loved it so much, we went back for strawberries in May! It was an unusually chilly morning for May in Charleston, but we had the fields all to ourselves and first pick of the best berries---and we got them all without breaking a sweat!

To be honest with you, its a little hard to look at these photos. We went strawberry picking on May 1st after a weekend of pure bliss, hope, and excitement for our little one to finally join our family. Just before going to Boone Hall Farms, I was at the fertility clinic doing a routine blood test to check my hcg levels. We had so much fun stomping through the mud and hunting for the best berry, unaware that later that afternoon we would get the first phone call explaining that things already weren't looking good for the pregnancy. The thought that something could be wrong was the farthest thing from our minds. And of course we all know how that turned out. Its strange to look at these photos and remember, 'Hey, I was pregnant then'. 

Even so, we had a fun morning together at Boone Hall. Going to U-Pick farms is one of our favorite things to do, and we can't wait to get back to Charleston to pick our own tomatoes, grapes, and blueberries too!
