  • As many of you have probably heard by now, my sister, Joanna, is going on a mission trip to Guatemala this summer. You might have seen the article published here about the fundraiser she created to raise money for drilling a well in the village she and my mom would be visiting.

A few made it into my breakfast one day, but mostly, I just enjoyed the berries in their natural state, fresh off the farm.
