already. it's past the halfway mark of october. it's autumn temps, curtains fluttering from open windows and our bed dressed with flannel sheets. i've busted out my knee high socks, poor dw doesn't know what to do with all the extra colorful articles of clothing in our laundry basket. this is his favorite season and because i love him, i have embraced it without a grimace this year.

we completed our first marathon relay this past weekend, spent 14 hours in slumber recovering (!!) and then spent a late morning wandering thru an apple orchard with a friend. this week will hopefully bring forth TWO apple pie recipes, from myself & dw. an apple pie throw down, if you will. in the meantime, i spent sunday evening making cake pops and as it happened, they turned out looking like little apples. enchante.

the cake came from my failed attempt, defrosted from the freezer. the recipe here, the only modifications were that i used almond milk in lieu of regular milk.

  2. A marathon? You definitely earned 14 hours of sleep and a bunch of cake pops. And then some.

  3. So not only did I miss apple picking with you on Sunday but I missed a chance to meet Savory Simple too? I am now wearing my sad face.

  5. Marathon. I can't even go 3 miles without wheezing, and, honestly, most of my "run" is downhill.

    I also loved the sleeping kids picture. You have such a good eye.

  6. What a lovely time apple picking. Your photos capture the beauty and deliciousness of it all, too.
