On a Friday night at the farm, there is nowhere I would rather be than right here, with four generations of my family from my 86 year old grandfather to our youngest less than 2 year old daughter enjoying my mom’s legendary homemade pie.
Whether it was the fresh blueberry, cherry or blackberry apple we ate tonight, everybody enjoyed the…
joys of pie, conversation and a family Friday night on the (indoor, heated) porch.
Pie has a way of gathering and connecting people. My mom makes it because she knows we love it but also because it’s a reason to gather together. There’s no television, movie, computer or mobile phone needed. Just a slice a pie (or two) and our family carries on in conversation together for hours. It’s a cherished and treasured time.
What connects you with your friends and family?

Isn’t it great that even though our lives are saturated with social media and technology that makes it easier to connect with others, the best way to enjoy others are through simple ways like pie and storytelling!
This is great!
Hi Katie, Nothing warms the heart and soul better than Grandmothers homemade pie. We always thought my Mom made the best pies ever too. Happy memories for me 🙂
Sounds like some great family time!
oh that sounds great! We have a meal and get together. Sad thing is there is only five of us, the rest of the family is in the Netherlands…. Luckely we are blessed with great friends and they might come over every now and then…
Pie is the best! Cures all! And homemade pie? Even better! 🙂
