one saturday morning, four blogger besties met in strawberry fields.  the perfect picnic people met us at central park to deliver the cutest blue and white tote bag complete with a ribbon & including a picnic blanket.  we found a nice shaded spot in strawberry fields – ready to brunch, relax, and enjoy each others company.  now, hindsight is 20/20, so given the chance to do it again, we probably would not have chosen the hottest day of the year at that point [a cool 96°] for our outdoor meal.  however, the perfect picnic made our experience so so so enjoyable.  they provided all the necessities & then some!  the food ranged from assorted baguettinis, north fork potato chips, & a cheese wedge… to fresh berries, seasonal salad, & bread… even organic lemonade, homemade chocolate chip cookies, & sea salt brownies.  this was a feast fit for a king!  [or 4 queens]
