Apples of my Eye!

Happy Fall Ya'll!

We officially made the crossover this weekend, and it feels so good. The Robert family hits some sort of strange stride this time of the year. We are in our element. Family traditions, lots of memories are made and pictures are taken, we craft more, we have babies (haha).... It's as if we were made for the Fall. And we welcome it each year with open arms. 


"Surely the apple is the noblest of fruits." Henry David Thoreau, Wild Apples

We heralded autumn with a little Prep School romp around the playground. 
Seemed like a fun way to welcome an old friend. :)
And what says the beginning of fall more than a bright red apple?

Apples may be juicy and sweet, but I am of the opinion that shiny red mary janes look just as good enough to eat as the fall fruit we celebrate. Swoon! ;)

And now, for your entertainment pleasure, I give you my ode to fall. AKA: My Favorite Fall Things. Enjoy.

Apples and pumpkins and nights that are crisper,
Crunchy leaf piles and breezes that whisper,
Cozy campfires and dark denim jeans,
These are a few of my favorite fall things.

Sweaters and tights and fun chores such as raking, 
Whole afternoons doing nothing but baking,
You know where I’ve been by the hot chocolate rings,
These are a few of my favorite fall things.

Hayrides and harvest and friends in tight huddles,
Babies named Reagan to love and give cuddles,
Homecoming week and the fun that it brings,
These are a few of my favorite fall things.

When the hay pricks, when the wind stings,
When I’m feeling sad.
I simply remember my favorite fall things
And then I don’t feel so bad!

Thank you, thank you.
On with the show!

We'll put more of our apple shenanigans in a Facebook album where they are easier to flip through. I might have taken 500 pictures or so. But I'll only publish a few. :)

In the meantime, get yourself some yummy fall deliciousness and keep the doctor away, won't you?

More apples and pumpkins coming tomorrow. :)
