U-Pick Strawberries: A fun activity for the whole family. #PYO

Strawberry season is now open and ripe for the picking. It is a very sweet adventure!!! In Southern California, we have several farms that offer the option to pick your own fruit to take home. The admission sometimes offers a fun wagon ride that drives you around the farm before you pick. One of those fun farms is Tanaka Farms. They are located in Irvine, California, right off the 405 freeway and Jeffrey. Follow the link to their site at  5380 University Dr, Irvine, CA 92612 for more information For those of you who can't make it to Irvine, there are plenty of other local strawberry farms who allow you to pick the fruit.  I have a few of their websites listed below.  Enjoy the berry good time!

Brené Brown: Why Your Critics Aren't The Ones Who Count

Great TED X Talk video that will help you make 2018 a great year!!! “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ― Theodore Roosevelt
