​The strawberry season is short, so you must take advantage of this sweet gift of nature while it lasts. Today we picked up some fresh picked strawberries from our local farmer's market. After much consideration, we decided to make a strawberry crisp to enjoy around the pool. Don't tell anyone, but we ate the whole thing.
