A is for Apple...

* be sure to enter my giveaway for a pair of beautiful laser cut felt earrings made by my cousin




This past Saturday Sean and I had a fun date of apple picking. It was an annual tradition growing up in my family complete with apple cider and donut holes. I have requested Sean and I continue the tradition of apple picking, whether donut holes and apple cider are included or not. We did have donuts on Saturday but Sean wanted them for breakfast and he did get me some donut holes.
Each year, we looked forward to apple picking and the chance to have some fun in front of the camera.




oh and pick some apples while we are at it and in Sean's case he found a pumpkin tree.





Each year it is a gamble about the weather we will have when we go apple picking. The first year it was cloudy and cool up there, last year it was over 90 degrees. This year it was clearly t-shirts weather, comfortable but not very hot. After our apple picking fun, we hit up a burger place afterwards. It was a good day!

I didn't get to go apple picking this year because most orchards weren't producing apples still (from our warm summer)- looks like you had a lot of fun!

Hi Meg! What a cute tradition (apple picking) It's something my family might need to adapt :) Your shoes you wore were so cute! Anyhow, you left a comment asking where I lived on the Central Coast, and we actually live in San Luis Obispo, so kind of in between Morro Bay and Santa Maria. How cool to find another blogger who has visited my area!
