Spring Days 🍓 // Happy first day of Spring!! Ahead of going strawberry picking on Sunday, I did some doodling while watching show reruns on Saturday night! Since I didn’t happen to have any masking fluid on hand, I had to do the white space the hard way! But I love how this turned out for our trip to @frobergsfarm! #watercolorartist #strawberryseason #moderncalligraphy

Who else is obsessed with strawberries right now?! Especially #louisianastrawberries ❤We can't keep them in the house! Other than snacking, they go in salads, overnight oats, cheesecakes, and homemade preserves. But I'm looking for some more ideas! Who has a berry recipe they want to share? Nikki at @mississippifireflies shared her pretty hand pie recipe- which I WILL be making later this week! #louisianafarmhouse #thatlacommunity
