Baby, Baby, Sweet Baby

For those of you who follow the blog, you'll know that my grandparents who live in Missouri own a farm. They grow all sorts of fruits and vegetables: broccoli, sweet corn, green beans, apples, peaches, cherries, and best of all, black raspberries. Helping Granny out in the garden, filling your bucket and eating anything extra that you can get your hands on, nothing beats that.

One summer day, my Grandpa needed help in the fields, so all the older kids went to give him a hand. Simultaneously, my Granny needed help in the garden, so the younger kids were comissioned to help her. After an afternoon of hard work, bending and weeding and tending the green bean fields, we came home in the back of Gradad's truck to a hilarious scene: Granny had my baby brother, who was 3 at the time, by the arm and was dragging him towards the house, chastising him in that voice all grandma's have. Upon closer examination, we found that he had emptied his entire bucket of black raspberries over his head and smeared the ones he couldn't eat all over his clothes and face!

Granny stuffed him into the bathroom and refused to let him out until he had bathed because he was not staining her carpet purple if she could help it! We followed close on Granny's heels, laughing at the hilarity of it all, and commenting on the sweetness of the scent, making mental notes to tease my brother about it later. The scent was delicious: warm, yet tart and it just so happens that ScentSationals fragrance Black Raspberry Vanilla captures that same warmth and tanginess!
