About the photo: I took my daughters to the Berry Company for their opening weekend of blueberry picking last weekend.  I really love how Temecula is home to some really hard working people, who care about the bigger picture, and about creating worthwhile experiences for others. The girls had a blast, even though it was drizzling, and we made our first Blueberry Buckle once we got home which is something that we will make a tradition out of no doubt!  I love Anne Frank’s quote, because while watching the girls fill their buckets, I was struck with what our hands can do…from farming to picking and everything in between.  And while I don’t think Anne meant it so literally, I can’t help but to feel that as we use our own hands we build character, too.
