this weekend was magical.
it officially started on Thursday night with the usual drunk dancing at Peter's.
that morphed into Friday, when my phone took a tumble into the toilet. gross AND unfortunate. luckily, I have insurance on my phone. I think that this is my 6th in 3 years.
a quick trip to Squirrel Hill's Verizon store and I now have a new one (same model) on the way. I'm really glad that I now have a store less than a 10 minute walk away from my house. I used to have to take a really long bus ride whenever this used to happen.
once that got taken care of, we went on a wonderful road trip to Simmons Farm. I'm not sure exactly where it is, but it was 70+ degrees and sunny. I could've ridden in a car with the windows down all day and not had a care in the world.
it felt so good to get out of the city and see some rolling hills. the other night I was ranting about how I was just craving foliage. I'm not sure if my friends quite understood what this Vermonter was going on and on about, but I dearly miss the bright orange and red hills that surround my home.
rather than just buying a peck at the little store, I insisted that we go out into the orchard and pick our own. I stand by the statement that there is NOTHING worse than a sub par apple, and I wanted to pluck the most crisp specimens from the tree myself.
there are few things that I love more than crunching leaves underfoot, eating salty food, and fresh apple cider. so it goes without saying that fall is my favorite.
do you agree?
