Strawberry Picking at Waltz Strawberry Patch + Announcing #StrawberryWeek!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!
What's more American than strawberry picking, rigggghttt?
My mom is adorable. She was so excited to take me strawberry picking and to then make strawberry jam together. She's adorable. We planned on a day to go strawberry picking and then...the place wasn't open yet (even though they had said they would be). So my mom did some research and found Waltz Strawberry Patch and it worked out wonderfully!
We pulled into this gorgeous farm that had strawberries as far as the eye could see...
We decided to each take a large bucket (I don't remember how much that equaled...a lot) and then we split up and went down our assigned lines of strawberry picking. I was AMAZED at how beautiful these strawberries were!
Before I knew it my bucket was filling up with lush, juicy, red strawberries!
The whole thing was so beautiful and picturesque, it was just crying out to be photographed!
Even with my frequent photo breaks, I managed to fill up my bucket faster than my mom (although some of that may be attributed to the allergy attack I was suffering at the time, and my desire to finish up and get the heck out of the nature lol).
Strawberries are just so pretty!
We were super choosy about which strawberries we picked, because we could be! 
Just look at how perfect they are!
We both filled up our baskets, paid, and headed home.
And I took a strawberry selfie for good measure.

After this awesome day, I made strawberry jam with my mom, and then I took home a bunch more strawberries. Which I proceeded to make things with. And thusly, next week is #StrawberryWeek! I'll be sharing the 3 recipes that were made with the fruits of this day's labors and it'll be sweet, juicy, and pretty-as these strawberries deserve! So come back Monday for the strawberry fun!
