Apple Picking

Last weekend, Matt and I headed out for my most favorite Midwest activity, apple picking!  Since moving to Chicago, I have looked forward to this activity every year.  Because of the frost late last spring, apple orchards were low on supply this fall, so we headed out a little earlier than usual just to make certain we could partake in our favorite fall tradition.  We've tried two different orchards in our time here, and our favorite is by far Jonamac Orchard in Malta, Illinois.  About an hour and a half outside of Chicago, it's a beautiful drive and an easy daytrip.

And of course, a few Instagrams from the afternoon at the orchard...

I wanted to go apple picking so bad this past weekend but we ended up going to a pumpkin patch so it wasn't all that bad. You look so ready for fall in that cute outfit!
