When my mind gets the best of me, fresh air is what helps most. Revisiting places you haven't been in a while. Realizing your thoughts are so small compared to everything around you. Not to minimize those issues or ignore what you're struggling with, but to breathe a little and come back to working on them later.

What do you do when blackberries are on sale at the grocery store? You buy four containers and make a blackberry cobbler. I always remember my great grandma's blackberry bush in her garden when I was younger, and thinking the texture of the berries were very strange. And I would never eat blackberries for that reason. I was a very picky eater when I was younger. And come to think of it, in many ways I still am a very picky eater, ha! As I grew older, our family recipes were something that we would go to make for holidays, or just to have something sweet especially on gloomy days like today. I'm SO glad i'm more open to trying different foods now, and this is a favorite.
We didn't use my great grandma's recipe, but we did use one we found online. You can find the blackberry cobbler recipe here.
This post has nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo, unfortunately. But everyone have a great rest of the week. Yay it's almost Friday!

When all else fails... take a trip to nearest inclosed park. A little fresh air, some exercise, learning where pinecones come from, and of course running wild is what any bored toddler needs. Adults need that too of course, ha. Hoping everyone has a decent weekend. You don't have to go far to clear your mind. Get outside for a bit.
