In a couple weeks we are heading to Vermont for a family get-together, and I can’t wait to go blueberry picking! Usually it’s so hot that I can’t manage to bake a pie, so instead I love throwing the fresh berries in salads. Click on over to my Better Homes and Gardens post for the full recipe and more photos. Cheers to outdoor summer meals!

While on the east coast for a wedding last week, Jonathan and I snuck away for a couple nights to his family’s house in Vermont, which is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. Blueberry picking is big there in August, and we found a stunning place to gather some: Merck Forest. I love freezing blueberries and using them instead of ice in drinks at cocktail hour. Cheers!
