LIFE/STYLE : At the Farm
All this autumnal weather has us itching for adventure. So over the weekend, with the wind blowing strong and grey skies rolling in, Claire and I escaped the city for a few hours and set out for the country. Just an hours drive put us deep in the heart of farm lands, where we were tempted off the main highway by road side signs promising apple cider donuts, a pumpkin patch, and a petting zoo. Does it get much more Midwest than that!? Oh wait, it does. Because we spent the afternoon picking apples, tooling around on a hay ride, and having a good frolic in a cornfield that was begging for us to do just that. It was the perfect way to embrace the beginning of Fall and the change of scenery was so good for our souls. We walked away with a bushel of apples and huge jars of local honey. Oh, and apple cider donuts. All of the apple cider donuts! Never forget the apple cider donuts.
