Fall Traditions

IMG_9029_wA couple years ago we met up with my friend Shawna and her boyfriend Sterling to pick pumpkins at Nihtila Farm in Massachusetts. It was rainy and I had dressed completely wrong for mucking around in the field so I had to wear trash bags over my shoes; something we still laugh about each trip. Rain, mud and all we had a blast and it became an annual tradition. IMG_9026_w

Since then, we’ve married those boyfriends and I’ve learned to always wear rubber boots for this excursion. But that’s not all. Shawna and Sterling will welcome their first child this January! While we searched for the perfect pumpkins we talked about how amazing it will be to have their baby girl join us next year for this annual tradition. I can’t wait! I think that’s probably my favorite thing about traditions; having something fun to look forward to.

Since I never posted them back then, here are a few favorites from that first muddy year:

Apple Picking

This past weekend we picked out our favorite plaids and headed to Lookout Farm for apple picking with my sisters. The weather was beautiful and we filled bags passed the brim with all our favorites: Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Macoun and Cortland. (I found this guide from Whole Foods handy when deciding which types to pick.) We know there’s going to be at least one classic apple pie, but we’re excited to experiment with some new apple recipes. And since the apple cider doughnuts were sold out by the time we headed home, those are top of our list to make this fall.
