We live in a small town. And we love it. One of the many reasons: an annual event put on by the Garden Club called Strawberries in the Park. The only food served is a big bowl of shortcake covered in fresh strawberries, vanilla ice cream, and whipped cream.
We look forward to it every year...live music, good food, lots of activities for kids, familiar faces.
We're a little messy by the end, but nobody complains about licking up dribbles of ice cream.
It makes our summers feel authentic, well-used, and complete to live in a community so delicious and wholesome.
