I know I've been MIA for a while, blame it on crazy busy schedules and lack of inspiration. But I promise I will do better. There will be some changes coming soon, thinking of changing the designs some. With all that being said, I have missed this process. Trying recipes, crafts and writing have always been fun for me so I'm happy to be back at it.
This summer has flown by and I can't believe it is over already. I had a very low key summer; lots of hanging with family and friends. But I am ready to get back into the routine of the school year. September is here and with it brings some of my favorite things football, changing of the season and fall flavors.
To celebrate the end of the summer my family and I went apple picking in the beautiful mountains of Charlottesville, at Carter Mountain Orchard. We had a wonderful day roaming around picking peaches and apples and taking in the sites. We went pretty early in the season for some of the apple varieties, but were still able to get quite a bit of apples. They still even had peaches to pick. My four year old said she could see the whole world from up there.
Oh, and lets not forget about the apple cider doughnuts. They were so good in fact that they didn't even make it home. I think that I am going have to make some of my own and post for you guys. With all the apples and peaches I want to try my hand at canning and of course some pies. I hope you enjoy what I have planned. Be blessed and enjoy.
