You know you live in Connecticut when.... you go apple picking! I hate to admit that I had never been before this past weekend, especially since it's such a quintessential New England thing to do and fall is my favorite season.
My friends and I headed up to Bishop's Orchard in Guilford. Plaid attire required. It was a bit of a trek but well worth it to avoid a crowd. I've heard that some of our local orchards get pretty packed and I wasn't up for that scene.
We had a great time and I'm sure it will become a tradition. One of the highlights of the day was taking a paparazzi-style photo of a couple getting engaged through the trees. She was completely shocked so her "Are you &*$% kidding me?!" reaction got our group's attention. I was happy to catch the moment for them. After filling our large bag with apples and pears we made a stop at the orchard's Farm Market before heading home for apple cider and donuts. I was a little peeved that they were out of hot apple cider.... so ended up stopping at Starbucks for my fix haha.
