    Apple Picking 2019

    It’s been 2 or 3 years since I’ve gone apple picking and I was itching to go and do something fall-ish despite the temperature still being hot. A few of my friends were free last weekend to go so we went to Terhune Orchards in Princeton which I had never been to. I’d heard good things about Terhune over the years so we decided to check it out. We went mid-morning and it was already really hot out so I’ll preface this by saying we did not stay long since we were all sweating to death in the hot sun. Terhune has 2 addresses and we accidentally went to the…

    #fbf Mums

    For this flashback Friday I thought it’d be nice to revisit fall since we’re in the midst of holiday and winter content now. Here’s a look of a pot of multicolor mums I got back in October. When I got the plant it was just buds so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out they were multicolor blooms! I love the mix of pink, red, and orange. So pretty! Sadly my mums are no longer and not because it got cold. The snow we got a few weeks ago crushed them and basically broke my poor plant in half! Have a great Friday!

    Fall in Historic Bethlehem

    Last weekend I met up with my friend and her baby in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to walk around, eat lunch, and catch up. It’s a halfway point for us and two years ago we walked around the Christmas market at the steel stacks in Bethlehem. This time we met up in the downtown, Main St. area which just so happens to be in historic Bethlehem. I only took a few photos, but I thought I’d still share them. The weather was perfect and everything was so nicely decorated for fall. When we walked down the side, residential streets pretty much every home was decorated so cute for fall! So many pretty…

    #fbf Leaf

    Two Octobers ago I went to a Harry Potter festival in Pennsylvania with some friends. It was a fun outing, but I remember the weather not being the best and it was super crowded so it was hard to enjoy. When I got to my friend’s car to escape the madness of the festival and to head out of the area to find food where the wait wouldn’t be over an hour, the perfect fall leaf fell on me. Well almost perfect – there were a few holes. It’s the quintessential leaf shape and color! So this flashback post is just to wish you all a happy fall! Here’s hoping…

    Photo Challenge: Temporary

    I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week! It feels like November just started. I’m not a fan of time going by so quickly, but I am excited for the holiday! Last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Temporary“. Most of the beautiful autumn leaves have fallen from the trees now where I live but there a few stragglers still on the trees. Of course, the ones left are not looking too pretty after withstanding downpours and gusty winds. But, a few weeks ago the leaves were looking gorgeous with their fiery, autumnal colors. When I was out for a walk in my neighborhood I saw this tree absolutely…

    Club Botanic – Celebrate Fall Wreath

    I love home decor and I love changing my wreaths seasonally. I basically have a wreath on the front door all year long. If you’ve been following me since last fall you know I put together my own fall wreath last year because I couldn’t find one I liked at the store. I had the incredible fortune this year to receive a fresh fall wreath from Club Botanic. I’m so excited to be collaborating with Club Botanic since I love flowers and wreaths! They sent me the Celebrate Fall Wreath which is made with oak, variegated boxwood, cedar, seeded eucalyptus, eucalyptus pods, and more. I love the fresh scent! Isn’t it…

    Photo Challenge: Shine

    This week was one of those weird weeks where at some points I thought the week was moving along pretty quickly and at other times I was wondering how it wasn’t Friday yet. Hopefully you all have been having a good week! This past week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was “Shine“. I chose a picture from my recent trip to the pumpkin patch/apple orchard, which I wrote about here. This photo was just outside the corn maze and as I looked back I saw the sun streaming down and hitting the tops of the corn stalks. I captured the photo at just the right moment to catch the sun…
