Ripened Days

It was a picture perfect day for my friend Katherine McPherson and her adorable fiancé Chad.

They were doing more than picking apples. They were also picking memories.

They headed to Lawrence Farms in the Hudson River Valley area where the gnarled limbs were reaching down tumbling the fruit to the ground.

It was a day of harvesting & gathering too, with good friends Betsy & Mike.

Good friends are people who help you be more of yourself.

And an apple a day & good friends are always good for your health.

While they were picking apples in the Hudson Valley, we were doing the same just outside of Lexington.

Did you notice the empty baskets?

I love this time of year - apple orchards and pumpkin fields! Great photos - we were at a u-pick farm last weekend, too. But, we came away with pumpkins and kids in tow. Wish I had grabbed some apples, too. :)
