Three years ago today, I escaped the bustle of NYC to have a girls’ weekend with my friend at her New Jersey home. I got off the train near Rutgers in a breath of fresh air. I love New York, but there is something about getting away and being in a more open space. Traveling from NYC is so easy. After grabbing a coffee, we were off to Princeton for apple picking at Terhune Orchards!
There is nothing more iconic of fall to me than apple picking. I may have gone as a kid, but this was the first time that I remember…and it was awesome! It is such a relaxing activity where you can literally enjoy the fruits of your labors. We had a great time, got a TON of apples, and went home to cook dinner.
I haven’t gone back since, but I am tempted to go this weekend. I’d love to do some “apple” baking. I’m getting into the fall spirit, and I need to embrace it! It is now time for apple crisp, pumpkin spice lattes, watching football, and enjoying the cooler air. Nothing is better than fall!
