Apple picking is very popular where we live in South Carolina but we haven’t always had the greatest luck with it.
In the past, we have foolishly waited until it actually felt like fall outside to head to the orchards but most trees are all picked over by then. We have wonderful fall weather and fun memories together but we never leave with many apples that we picked ourselves.
This year, though, the girls were determined to bake an apple pie from the apples we picked so we decided to go earlier and do some ‘summer’ apple picking instead. It was hot but it was so worth it! We got tons of great apples and the girls enjoyed snacking while we walked.
Anna Rose and Juniper are VERY proud of their haul and are very excited for Auntie A, our resident master baker, to come over tomorrow to bake their pie with them!
Fall is here
We are so excited fall is here, we are ready for s'mores and campfires!!!
Books are positive memories from my childhood.
I was very lucky and grew up in a home with 2 parents who loved to read to me. ð
I remember spending time with my mom snuggled in the window box seat in my room looking at and reading
What a "fun" weekend! 😁
This past weekend was a "chores" weekend.
We did a lot of work in our yard -- weeding, pruning and planting new flowers.
We also did a huge garage cleaning -- got rid of things that we often look at and wonder why we keep it --
