Last Sunday, my family and I went upstate to an apple orchard, one which we go to every year. For me, this special tradition marks the begining of the fall season. The leaves have begun to turn into the beautiful orange and red colors and my mom transforms the juicy macintosh apples into warm apple pies and apple crumbcakes. Apples happen to be one of my favorite fruits so taking the first bite from a just picked apple is like a taste of heaven for me.
Sipping my pumpkin latte :)
After enjoying our time together at the orchard, we made our way back home but first stopped at a store market to pick up some groceries and drink apple cider. After the market, Ionly had a few hours to pack as I was going back to school that evening. My mother, sister, and I went down into Manhattan so I could pick up my bus that was going back up to school and walked around a little beforehand. However since it was raining, we spend most of the time in the car waiting for the time for me to leave. It was great to have the last couple of minutes to share with my family (the next time I'm home is for Thanksgiving!) Now, at school Im slowly adjusting to my 15 hour schedule that starts with five 8:30am classes and continues with work, classes, and practice until 10:00pm. It's rough and hectic but I wouldn't be going through the motions if I didn't love it.
