It surely feels like fall around here and I’m loving every bit of it. Dillon and I had the opportunity to go apple picking with some sweet friends on Saturday afternoon and we had such a lovely time! It was fun to cross off a fall bucket list activity while enjoying fellowship at the same time. There is a picturesque little orchard, Carter Hill, that’s a bit of a drive away and overlooks the mountains at the end of each row of trees. We enjoyed the view, snacked on apples to our hearts’ content, climbed branches for the best ones, and laughed along the way.
When we had finished picking, we went into the shop alongside the orchard and chose some sweets to enjoy. Dillon got a package of freshly made apple cider donuts, I picked out a pumpkin whoopie pie, and our friends each got a slice of pie and donuts of their own. I also picked up three little pumpkins to decorate with, which are arranged on my desk along with my Leaves candle.
After we shopped, we sat down at the edge of the orchard to enjoy our treats and talk about exciting life things. The weather was mild enough that you could be comfortable in a short sleeve top or a sweater all the same, and it was refreshing to soak up every bit of fresh air that we could before we headed back home.
I’m not usually a donut girl, but I tried my first bite of an apple cider one and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was!
With fall being my favorite season, I had imagined what it would be like to someday share it with someone special. It has been the sweetest thing to get to enjoy festive fall treats and activities with Dillon, making memories of our own. I’m so thankful!
