Weekend Snapshots: Welcoming Fall

The perfect day for apple picking at Barden's Orchard.

Oversized heirloom tomato.

Crates of miniature gourds.

Sugary apple cider donuts made the perfect post-picking treat.

Reaching for the perfect apple!

Clusters of the honey crisp variety.

Sunday NFL special: lemon-pepper grilled wings.

Hot deep-dish apple pie straight from the oven.

This weekend was the first one that really felt like fall, which led to a trip to a local orchard for apple picking and the first Starbucks pumpkin misto of the season. I love everything about fall: changing leaves, football, layering clothes, tall boots, Halloween, heartier meals, and crisp temperatures. It means the holidays are coming, which always gets me excited! What are your favorite things to do in the fall?

I LOVE this post. Those apple cider donuts look amazing (I almost bought a ton last week myself!)
