just peachy

taste like summer..


Luke and I had the most amazing weather for our day off so we just had to do something outside. We went to one of our favorites, Eckert's orchards, to get lunch and pick our own peaches.  I'm usually not a fan of fried foods but they make the most amazing southern comfort food and "gandma's recipe" fried chicken. That little honey bear holds yummy apple butter and is served with warm fried biscuits..so good!



The sky looked amazing but it started getting windy and raining just a little bit..I'll take anything over 100 degree days and it was in the 70's, perfect!  Since it was a little late in the season there was a ton of fruit wasted on the ground and the lady told us it would be a bit like a treasure hunt to find the good stuff. It smelled so amazing though! One of us started singing " peaches" so it was stuck in my head the entire time haha...awesomely bad!







Leaves on the ground make me happy..I can't wait for fall!




I guess we ventured a little too far out because the wagon had left without us( and a few others) so we had a bit more time to find more peaches! There really is nothing quite like plucking your own fruit from a tree. I can't wait to make a pie,cobbler,or do some canning! My grandma and I used to can our own fresh jam/salsa and I plan on trying it out on my own. Mmm peach jam...or salsa!

Nom nom nom! I am crazy about peaches! I have mostly been eating the tinned variety, but I certainly can't wait for summer when I can get the real things! Mmm! Oh, and I am crazy about your dress! <3 The floral print (and colour!) and divine!
