apples and pink cowboy boots…

I’m having one of those days, I’m afraid….too much work, not enough play, and definitely not nearly enough time to do it all.

So, I am escaping…transporting myself back to last week’s trip to the best apple orchard ever, Swanton Pacific Ranch in Davenport. I love that the trees are tiny, perfect for the wee ones to pick themselves. We caught the tail end of the crop, and the golden leaves sparkled as we filled our bags. It was warm, sweet, and wonderful. I didn’t want to leave. I love the last glimpses of warmth that October brings…I miss her already.

Plus…with pink cowboy boots, how could we go wrong?







I wish you a happy escape today, even if it is simply the memory of a warm day.

xo, j
