A distinct advantage to my marraige...

My in-laws are the distinct advantage of which I speak. They are very wonderful people, who have been nothing but precious to me since the day they met me. They embraced me as part of their family, and trusted that we knew what we were doing when we got married so quickly. I could go on and on about them, but I'll just offer an example. I present, my breakfast:

That's Activia yogurt in there, which is good stuff. It has my recommendation. Now, for the other ingredients...

The figs are picked off Jon's granddad's fig tree, and his mom picks them a lot, so we have yummy figs the whole time they're in season.

The blueberries, off a bush in the in-laws back yard.
The raspberries, again, picked by Jon's mom.
The peaches-this is my favorite part: The folks went to South Carolina and picked a bushel of peaches and brought them home. Then, we spent the morning peeling and soaking and otherwise preparing the endless peaches. And, in my freezer, I have a whole year's worth! A whole year of delicious peaches. That's a lot of cobbler, folks. And that freezer, they got it for my birthday last year, because my freezer in my fridge is tiny and non functional.

I never thought peeling and cutting peaches would be fun, but it was. They really feel like family now, which is nice.

Activia yogurt is so nasty (to me). And I've never tried a fig, but I love me some peaches.
