Every Sunday morning we walk up to the Farmer’s market to get our produce for the week, and this morning, the weather was absolutely perfect!  To make a good start to the day even better, when we got to the market we found the first cherries of the season!  In California, we’re really lucky to have a lot of produce year round, or at least longer than you can get it most other places.  The downside is that it’s easy to take some things for granted, because you can have them whenever you want.  But cherries are only here for what feels like a very short time, and I love them!  In fact while Ryan was taking this photo, I stood at the kitchen counter and ate every last one that didn’t fit in this bowl.  They make me feel like it’s summer (even though I know it’s only spring), and having grown up in Chicago, there was nothing I loved more than summertime.  Now I can start the countdown to peaches!
