Who knew the shared love of blackberries would bring two bloggers together? I’m so glad it did!
Blogging is great because it introduces you to new friends from all over the country, but sometimes you find out they are just around the corner in the next town!
I met Allie on Twitter and she seemed super nice, so when she told me she would bring me some wild blackberries… I invited myself to come along and pick them with her:-) Little did I know this was her secret place!! She made me promise not to ever tell… so now I’m a part of a secret blackberry picking club! Yay!
My first day as a member of the club was a fun one! I discovered Allie has boys close to the same age as my kids. They are cute little guys who loved to eat berries… especially right after I would pick them! LOL!
She is also a talented writer and artist. So we have a lot in common (minus the writing part- because I’m horrible at that!). It was refreshing to get to know someone in person other than through the computer.
Needless to say, my drama queen was tired and threw a few fits, so we lost a lot of berries as she threw them on the ground. But I got just enough to make one of these…
Look for new recipe ideas next week, I’m changing up my weekly meal plans. I’ll include a recipe for cobbler soon. I have a few I want to try out with my new berries and then post my favorite!

Have a great weekend!!
