I should be doing homework right now, but I am a notorious procrastinator so alas! Here I am!
Chris and I went apple picking two weekends ago before he went back to Boston. I love going apple picking: A. Because I love apples. B. Because it's such an autumny thing to do. C. Apple orchards are just so cute and country-esque. They're so pretty and peaceful...if there's not too many people at the orchard that day. There's something exciting about picking fruit right off a tree. It's such a simple little pleasure. When I have my own house someday, I want to plant an apple tree in my yard...or possibly have a lot of land and have my own tiny apple orchard. :) They make me think of simpler times.
We picked so many apples! I plan to make a pie which is exciting because apple pie is my favorite pie. Actually, it's pretty much the only pie I'll eat. I'm definitely more of a cake person.
We found a baby apple that is sitting on my dresser at this very moment. It's so small and cute! I want to preserve it forever, but I can only find information on how to preserve cut apples. :\
We used the good ol' self timer and took a couple of pictures under one of the apple trees. The title of this entry is a lyric from one of my all-time favorite songs. Chris knew this and suggested we take some pictures together under an apple tree. He's a keeper. :)

Along with our apples, we each got a little bottle of apple cider. They make it with the fresh apples and it's the best cider I've ever had. I wish I bought a bigger bottle! Sarah wants to go apple picking and Meaghan and I have been going every year for the past couple of years now, so hopefully I'll be going back very soon!
