The Joys of Apple Picking


Oh my dear friends, how I have missed you. This girl has had some serious writers block, but its a new month and with that I am back at it! Not only bringing you some written pieces, but also taking advantage of my channel on YouTube, so make sure you subscribe. The autumn season is in full swing here in WNY and with it comes some really awesome fall activities. My favorite by far is going WAY OUT into the country, leaving my city life behind and taking my family apple picking.

I know some of you may feel that apple picking is a little lame, juvenile or just for people with kids, but its not. There is something so calming about being in a quite orchard. The sweet smell of the air, the wet ground and the bounty of goods all around you. It is simply a time to be still and return to the very simple act of  gathering. Locally, we love Brown's Berry/Pumpkin Patch in Waterport, NY. And its not just the welcoming and knowledgable staff, the super fun activities for the kids and amazing produce and goods in the general store (mmmmmm...apple butter). But, its the gorgeous drive up, complete with Amish buggy caution signs. On the way back we actually saw a horse and carriage riding up the rode and I cannot begin to describe to you the excitement that exuded from all three of us in the car. Plus, we made a stop at Olcott Beach on the way home and picked up some beautiful shore stones for home decor and some outdoor fun later on. It has become a family tradition for us and one that creates amazing memories, encourages us to bond and gets us aways from our mobile phones, computers, social media and all the like. We are able to just be. To connect with each other and fest on sweet and nutritious treats all at the same time. So gas up your ride, get your family or friends or the one closest to your heart and go out there and start picking some apples!!!!

Love Malinda xoxo
