Yesterday was a beautiful day!!! The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect! Tom and I took our two boys out to Orchard Hill farm to do the CSA pick up and it was beautiful!!

Seeing the sun shine over the fields was amazing! It made me dream of one day living on a farm…or at least in the country….and having land to enjoy. Our tiny piece of land in the city just isn’t the same.
