An Apple Picking Date, Market Finds, And A Moment Of Clarity

Hi there and happy Sunday! I hope you all have had great weekend so far. My car has been acting up so my hubs is working on it while I write. 

Yesterday, my husband and I went on our annual apple picking date to Lynd Fruit Farm. We always have so much fun walking through and tasting the apples. We buy a large bag to fill so we have plenty to eat and more to bake with. 

I love eating the apples straight off of the trees.

After picking our apples, we headed over to the farm’s market for some goodies! 

We left with apple butter, sweet and fresh pickles, chili mix, apple cider, pie, and sweet potatoes. Everything at the market is DELICIOUS! We also bought a pumpkin to carve this week.

Once we got back to our place from the market, we decided to make a Kroger run so we could cook and finish our date night at home. 

For dinner, we made chili with the mix we got at the market and cornbread muffins. We also made a warm spiked cider with apple cider, vanilla vodka, cinnamon and brown sugar. We put the ingredients in our crockpot until warm. 

Dinner was fantastic!

After dinner, I made an apple bread with some of the fresh apples we picked. I found a recipe on Pinterest that was healthy, and it turned out amazing!! I had it for breakfast and topped it with apple butter. A perfect fall breakfast alongside a nice cup of coffee. 

Once I finished breakfast and some cleaning, my friend came over and we drove to church together. The service spoke to me in a way I needed badly this morning. I had such a sense of clarity by the time the pastor finished. 

I have had a lot going on in my life lately, but I feel prepared to make myself better, and to work hard to make my dreams a reality. More on that later! Just please send positive vibes my way!! 

The rest of my day will be filled with hanging out at the shop while my husbad works. He seriously is the best. I’m a lucky gal! 

I hope you guys have a wonderful rest of your day and a positive week ahead!

With love, 

Carly
