Fall Tradition

Every year that Randy and I have been married, we have found a pumpkin patch of some kind to go to, even if we just pick out a couple tiny pumpkins. It’s a festive, fun time for our little family.

I came across this post from our pumpkin outing last year, and wow has Nolan changed in a year. We went to Stewart Farms for the 2nd time and really enjoyed it. Nolan loved pushing the wheel barrow and carrying his pumpkin around. I think it’s a tradition will continue to keep! 🙂



Four Years

4 years ago

The last four years have been some of the best of my life! It’s difficult to not sound cliche when talking about how thankful I am for my husband and my little family. So I’ll just say I’m more in love with Randy now than when I said “I do.” ❤

And though this year’s anniversary celebration didn’t involve a romantic getaway, we got to celebrate with this little squish. 😉

We had a fun family weekend starting out with a trip to the coffee shop for lattes and then to the park for a little walk, and then ordering Greek food for dinner to go along with a RedBox (super romantic, I know). The next morning we went for a family run (those are my favorite because then Randy can push the stroller. 😉 ). After our jog, we tried out a local breakfast place and then headed to the pumpkin patch. Nolan really was having a fun time, honest! 😀

Overall, I would say it was a wonderful 4 year anniversary celebration! 🙂

his grumpy face kills me. 😀

Apple Picking

Apple picking is one of our favorite fall “traditions.” Skytop Orchard in North Carolina is such a festive place this time of year, not to mention SO beautiful!

We start off with some fresh, hot apple cider donuts and grab some baskets to start picking. Granny Smiths and Pink Lady apples were the only ones still on the trees, so I see some great apple desserts in the near future! 😛

I think it’s clear who was having more fun with this apple-picking strategy. 😉
