The best thing about July, in my opinion, isn’t the fireworks or the parties, it’s the cherries.  There’s nothing that makes me happier than a cold bowl of red, ripe cherries, especially when they’re on sale for $1.99 per pound.  I think I bought six pounds of them last night.

A couple of years ago, Luke and I went to Maine with Paula and Karlo to take a sailboat ride and celebrate Paula’s birthday.  Both couples brought snacks for the trip and we both packed big bowls of cherries.  I can tell you, there’s nothing more peaceful and wonderful than sitting in a sailboat on a beautiful summer day eating cherries and being able to spit the cherry pits overboard.   Ahhh… summer.
