I was so excited to go apple picking and get my hands on some apple cider donuts at Blue Jay Orchards this past weekend. I’m always bugging Joe how I want to try apple cider donuts and when I found out the orchard I used to go to on school field trips sold them, I just had to make the trip out there.
Saturday was the perfect day for a road trip to pick some apples. It was so beautiful driving through Connecticut where all of the trees have been changing colors to the prettiest shades of red, orange and yellow. It made me miss living in Connecticut since I don’t get to see the trees change color anymore living in NYC.
I also had the cutest apple picking outfit planned with a festive blanket scarf and a new wool hat I picked up at Woodbury Commons last weekend. Unfortunately, it got very hot pretty quickly once Joe and I started picking apples. You would never have guessed it was mid-October since the temperature got up to 75 degrees. But that didn’t stop me from getting a wide variety of apples for my delicious homemade crock pot apple sauce!
Did anyone else have any fun and festive weekend plans?
