I Hart Autumn

My friend and I got out of Dodge today to soak up some fall.

We set out as we did last year with a list of places to go. The morning started out crisp--the perfect backdrop for apple picking. Then there was a lavender farm, and lunch by a lazy river. But we didn't follow our plan to a T. Instead, we took the advice of some folks we met along the way. They led us to one of the best farm markets either of us had ever been to, and a delightful town that was new to both of us. A stop at a nursery for some plants and a pop into a local shop with the most outrageous ice cream rounded out what was a perfect day. Not the exact one we had planned--but one that turned out to be far better, thanks to the detours.

Hopefully you're enjoying the season wherever you are!


  1. This looks so fun! What a beautiful farm.

    So glad to see you blogging again. I was excited to see a "Monica's Musings" in my mail box.

    Oh, and btw, those photos of your dog in the last post were so flipping cute it's ridiculous!

  2. Aw, thanks so much! Yeah, after a (too-long) hiatus, am looking forward to getting back to the writing. You, as always, are my blogging inspiration!
