Bikes, Blues, & Barbeque

Fun Weekend in Northwest Arkansas! They say 400,00 bikers roar into town. I don't know who counts them, but I believe it.

It is so fun to be in the middle of it. I love our town.

Blackberries on the Vine

One of my favorite places this summer was Stay-n-Step Blueberry Farm.  I picked so many berries that surely I won't run out before it's time to pick again next year.

I loved to go early in the morning... earlier than most people... while the dew was still thick in the grass, when the birds were chirping, and before the sun was high enough to be hot.  It was so beautiful and so peaceful. And it was so easy to fill a bucket with pure deliciousness! 
There's something extra delicious and satisfying about eating something that you picked yourself.  

FYI - My trick to keep from eating while I pick is to put a fresh piece of gum in my mouth right before I go.   If I can keep from eating even one, I'm ok... But if I eat one... I'll probably eat two dozen!

Look at this happy couple!  
They'll be married this time next week!  Yay!  We are so thankful.  She completes our family.
