Sunday morning came quite early.
We were determined to go apple picking, so we headed to the earliest church service we could. We wanted our whole day free to do some driving and exploring.
Church was pretty amazing on Sunday. We sat down in our seats and the pastor proceeded to tell us that the President of Burundi was here to speak to the congregation. Seriously?! Incredible.
After church, we headed home to eat some lunch and wear Nola out a bit, before we headed back out for our next adventure. We drove about 45 minutes North where we caught the tail-end of apple picking season. Neither of us have never been apple picking before and it felt like the perfect way to welcome in Fall. Yes, I’m a little obsessed with Fall. It’s only been officially here for a few days and I’ve talked about it almost every post.
There were mainly apples on the ground and not too many that were good enough to pick, but we managed to find six good ones that I plan on using to make some apple sauce. It was another fun Fall activity that I’m craving so much now, just living more North. Some of my favorite times are just driving around North Carolina and around Charlotte. It’s so beautiful and I am very grateful to be here, especially as the seasons change. I can’t wait to go pumpkin picking in a few weeks, once the temperature drops. Figuring out and discovering all of these little traditions that I want to start now for my family.
All-in-all it was the perfect day that ended with us having dinner with our neighbors and watching football. I just love Sunday. It makes the busyness and stress of the week melt away.
I’d love to know, what was your favorite part of the weekend? Any fun Fall activities you recommend we try this year?
