a little break.

School has had me drained these past few weeks, and so I was so thankful to have a chance to get away from my studies and spend some time outdoors with some wonderful friends! Even now I should be writing an essay, but I am tired of being glued to history books for the time being.

We drove to Solebury Orchards, a local pick-your-own apple spot nestled within the most idyllic spread of farmlands and colonial buildings our area has to offer.

The three of us wandered deep into the rows of Stayman Winesap apples and ultimately spent more time taking photos than picking apples, but we did get a good amount of fruit from the loaded branches! The weather was a bit unseasonably warm, and the sun made it feel like it was more August than October, but the smell of apples in the air was undeniably autumnal.

everything apple.

Once my assignments let up I hope to bake these apples into pie, and have some cozy food ready for when the temperatures dip back down into chillier territory. I left the orchard with some wonderful cider, lots of donuts, and a warm feeling in my heart. All too often schoolwork forces me to become reclusive and bars from me from getting out and having fun. This week was so severe that I started feeling less like a person, and more like a robot just processing information for upcoming tests.

I'm so thankful I got to spend the day away from my computer, my schoolwork, and everything else that has been looming over me. Today was such a happy day shared with wonderful people!
