Looking through my pins from the last week I noticed a berry red trend. Growing up in Oregon I spent many a summer day picking, well mostly eating, fresh locally grown berries. Even as a little girl, I loved strawberries so much that my family still calls me the berry girl. Now that I live in Southern California I can find locally grown berries for much of the year (as opposed to Oregon's two month season). Still, I find that the sweet, colorful berry irresistibly evocative of the spirit of summer.
