Apple Orchard

Apple Orchard | Beauty and Blooms

Snow has frosted our rooftop, but Ian and I are still daydreaming of our last fall excursion – a sunny afternoon at the apple orchard. We got a bit carried away picking apples and left with a huge basket full! The rest of the week was packed with apple pie, caramel apples, and cinnamon apple muffins. Luckily we had hungry coworkers to help eat all of our baked goods!

Ski Hi Apple Orchard

Ski High | Beauty and Blooms

The onset of fall is routinely celebrated with a family trip to Ski Hi, an apple orchard outside the Wisconsin Dells. I look forward to this day all year since it means one thing – the start of caramel apple season! Ski Hi is perched on top a hill, so you get to enjoy your choice of caramel apple or apple cider donut with a gorgeous view.

What are your favorite fall traditions?

Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Patch | Not Your Average Dairy Queen

A few weekends ago Ian and I traveled to our local pumpkin patch. We spent the afternoon walking around the apple orchard, snacking on carmel apples, and enjoying the crisp fall air. While our main goal of the day was to pick out a few pumpkins to bring home, it ended up to be quite an adventure. That’s one of the things I love most about Ian, he can make the simplest things into a cherished memory.
