what have I been up to lately?

Stopping by for a quick Sunday hello, to fill you in on what I’ve been up to lately.

Our winter farmers market started this weekend, which I am extremely excited about.  The produce offerings will soon die down, so I jumped on the chance to pick up a few fall favorites.

Kelsey came along too!

About 1.5 months ago we bought a giant box filled with peaches, and now it’s on to apples.

Imperfect apples to be exact. 

Hardly anything imperfect about these babies.

Especially the price.  20lbs for $20!!  We split them right down the middle.  What a deal!  Don’t expect too many apple recipes though.  My favorite way to eat apples is whole!

After the market, I headed on a drive to check out a few spots for a few upcoming photography sessions.

I love the slightly gloomy, wintery look.  Today is a different story though.  Nothing but sunshine!

We’re hoping to get a bike ride in, do some things around the house and then I have an engagement shoot.

You can catch more photos, from all of these sessions, over at Ashley McLaughlin Photography.  Now it’s time to get started on a fall inspired recipe, head out for that bike ride, and then to the engagement shoot.  Enjoy the day!
