I am really feeling thankful for good health right about now! Along with Thanksgiving this year came the flu--as you could imagine it wasn't the most ideal for socializing and a hearty meal. Thankfully, I am well on the mend now and looking forward to what's to come in the next month! Is it mind boggling to anyone else that the holiday season is upon us?! Hoping each and every one of you had a lovely Thanksgiving...

P.S. Anyone have a must-try recipe using apples?

  7. I can't express how much I love these images. I have been wanting to go apple picking for weeks now... how lovely!

    I just made an apple/cranberry pie that was quite delicious! There's tons of recipes out there for one -- I just mixed 4 cups of small sliced apples, 2 cups of fresh cranberries, half cup of sugar, 1/4th cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4th cup of packed brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and a 1/4th of a teaspoon of nutmeg. Mix that all together in a bowl and throw into your pie crust. :)

    1. He is very picky.

      (Good one, Josh!) Ja ja ja...

    2. Dear Anonymous, the model's name is Josh and he's quite expensive... Are we talking shorts or speedo?

    3. This is ector.
      Very clever, jen, very clever. (Josh being 'picky' while picking apples, right?!)
      We could probably start in a speedo then move on to something less formal.

  9. So glad to hear you're on the mend! I'm afraid we've been battling sickness in this household too. The mister and I meant to go apple picking this year too but I'm afraid the rain set in sooner than we had predicted. Guess we will just have to put it on the list for next year!
