Apples & Donuts

Nothing better then farm fresh corn & pickles!!
My cute little white pumpkin =)

I love looking out my window this time of year and seeing all the trees changing colors. Nothing makes me feel like its fall more than going apple picking. For as long as I can remember I have been going with my family, and it’s a tradition that I will always continue. The past few years we have been so lucky with the weather being warm when we go, and that makes it so much more enjoyable!

Once we are done with picking apples I love going into the market because everything is just so fresh! The smell of donuts baking is my personal favorite, and I look forward to them all year. The market had samples of their homemade Apple Cherry Cider which I have never had before because I’m not much of an Apple Cider person, but this was so good!! It tastes like the juice from the bottom of an ice pop AKA delicious! That paired with warm apple crisp and I am in heaven.

This vampy tee felt perfect to wear on a fall day over a cozy flannel. I purchased this tee last year from Q Tee. They have an awesome website that lets you customize your purchase! Have a good day & thanks so much for reading!!

Ready to explore!!

Throughout the field there are sunflowers with different faces & designs on them which was so cute!

These flowers were almost 12 feet tall!
I love this photo that I took of my friend because it really shows the perspective of these flowers.

For the past two years I have wanted to go to a sunflower field, but I couldn’t find the time to take the trip. The flowers have a short season so it’s the type of thing you have to know about in advance, and then plan a weekend. That’s why I wanted to write this post so I could share this amazing experience with all of you!

This year I was finally able to go while they were still in full bloom. Once we started exploring I was in total shock by how tall these sunflowers were, it’s like nothing I have ever experienced or seen. It was acres upon acres of fields with all different kinds of sunflowers. I was on cloud nine the entire time! This particular location that I went to is closed now, but I would recommend marking your calendar to save the date for next year! It’s called Sussex County Sunflower Maze.

Last weekend I was up in the same area, and while driving I passed a beautiful sunflower field that still had blooming flowers, so I wouldn’t get your hopes down just yet. I’m assuming it depends when they plant the seeds how long their season lasts. My advice is to call before going, and if you have to wait until next year its 100% worth it. Happy October everyone!! Comment below if you have suggestions for any fun fall activities, I love hearing about new places to visit!
