Apple Picking

PBstripeddress-6
I tell you apple picking was a highlight that we always seem to reminisce on when we talk about our time in the Boston area.  During this time of the year we use to have apples just up to our eyeballs. We would eat apples with every meal, we would dehydrate them and make applesauce to savor the flavors long into the winter.  But sadly, there aren't massive orchards here in Utah like there was in Boston. So we compromise.
Every so often we go to local farms to pick up some fresh picked apples and take a bushel or two home with us. And we love it because it brings a small taste of the times we went apple picking in Boston.

Sooooo.... I know I talk about Boston a lot, and the things we loved and learned there. And I know we will soon be talking about all the things we love and learn here in Utah. However, there are things that we learned in Boston that I hope will never leave us. Like this silly tradition of apples in the fall and all the recipes and outings that revolved around apples. I just am glad that we have some great things that we took away from the time we lived out in Boston together as a family.

If you want to care to reminisce with us of the times we documented apple picking in Boston you can see it both here and here.

Apples are obviously something we look forward to when it comes to fall. What are some of the things you look forward to in the fall? Are there traditions that you crave for when that crisp air comes around?

P.S. My dress is from Pink Blush Maternity, a dress that you could live in.

I went apple picking two Saturdays ago (and then antiquing!). It's one of my favorite New England traditions. You just have to do it!

Oh, I love this. I miss apple picking and all things New England in the fall. But I grew up going to Allred's and getting their cider. I was just talking with my mom today about apple season. She's very happily up to her eyeballs in them from her trees in the back yard. I'm sure you'd be welcome to drop in any time for a sack of apples fresh (and organic) from the tree. They make great apple sauce. :) (I'm totally serious, by the way. She would be thrilled. She's a five minute drive from you . . . )

I love the intimate touch in your photos. And that mailman bag is so stylish. Would you agree that the apple display is so cool? Could use that as design for one area of the kitchen. Hehe. Anyway, pls also support our blog and our store. We showcase 8ft trampoline pad and other trampoline things. Here's our link
