Heaven = Strawberries + Beer




The good news: Tonight at the Maplewood Farmers' Market I saw the first (for me, at least) strawberries of the season, courtesy of Bivers Farm.

The bad news: I bought the second-to-last pint maybe fifteen minutes after the market officially opened at 4 p.m.

That's Schlafly Export IPA, by the way.

I love my job.
