Apple Picking
The Perfect Double Date

I am thrilled that the fall season has finally arrived in all it’s glory.

This is by far my favorite time of year. I love the cool weather, hot soup, and the anticipation of all the holidays. One of the things that I think goes unnoticed is how much this time of year brings people together. The wedding season usually stunts our social life so I’m eager to get to spend more quality time with those I hold dear as the wedding season comes to a close.

With this in mind, Vitaliy and I decided to usher in fall with close friends while we were in St. Louis last month. Sarah The Architect had the brilliant idea of going apple picking together. It was a perfect double date! We went to Eckert’s in Illinois, but I’m sure you can find a good apple picking spot wherever you’re located.

I often miss my window for apple picking so don’t delay. Grab a few friends and go have fun! Now, if only I knew how to make a homemade apple pie.
