Apple picking

A few weekends ago, some friends and I braved the torrential downpour and went on a mission to go apple picking, As the non-planner for this trip, I fell asleep on the car ride over. As we parked the car, I woke up only to realize that I went to this same orchard 4 years ago! Looking back on that old post, I can say for a fact that I dressed more appropriately this time around ;) haha!

I’m a little embarrassed to admit this, but these L.L. Bean boots have been sitting in my closet for almost 2 years before this apple picking trip. Buying items off-season has its pros and cons. The big pro for buying these boots back when I did is the fact that they were 20% off. The con is that I had to wait almost a full year before they were weather appropriate to wear. By that time, I may have forgotten about them in the back of the closet. Rediscovering (and wearing them for the first time) almost 2 years after their initial purchase is more than a little bit embarrassing to admit.

If you ever find yourself apple picking during planned downpour, I highly recommend wearing some sort of eye protection. Despite these big frames, I still got hit in the eyeballs a handful of times with sideways rain drops. Not exactly the best conditions for blog photos haha!

    We’re hoping to pick tomorrow but it is SO rainy! Looks like you had a fun time:)

  • I’m sad apple season is now essentially over around here. Lots of farms are closing up shop. We went picking a while ago and are running out of delicious honeycrisp apples. Excited to go again next year, though maybe I’ll try to hit a sunny day again ;)
