Inspiration Monday: Strawberries


As you all know, we participated in the “Walk to End Lupus 2013” Walk yesterday in San Diego.   De Anza Cove was beautiful and the weather was perfect (ya’ll know how I melt in hot temps. ;]).  3 miles was a pretty good workout and everyone was so nice.  Can’t wait to do it again next year!  Go Team KML!

Anyway, today’s Inspiration Monday is about one of my favorite fruits – STRAWBERRIES!

Did you know that today, May 20th, is National Pick Strawberries Day?!

I didn’t, but I’m kind of in love with the fact that every day is a National Food Holiday.  Who doesn’t love food?!

In honor of National Pick Strawberries Day, here’s a small list of places you can check out to pick-your-own strawberries (if the mood strikes):

-OAK GLEN, CA: Riley’s Farm

-CARLSBAD, CA: Carlsbad Strawberry Company


-IRVINE, CA: Tanaka Farms

If you end up getting strawberries today, then you’re one step ahead for tomorrow, which is National Strawberries & Cream Day!

All this talk of strawberries makes me want a Strawberry Shortcake!  How about you?  If the mood strikes, I want pictures of your strawberry goodness! :]

p.s.  May 20th is also National Quiche Lorraine Day, but I’m seldom a quiche fan, so strawberries won out. ;]
