I Heart Apple Hill

My old roommate Brittney was home visiting for Thanksgiving this week and suggested that we get together and go on an adventure to Apple Hill with some of our other friends. I was game. I hadn't made it up there yet this year and was desperate for Apple Donuts and Cider. I decided to forgo the Carmel Apples this year, they were so expensive and the line to get in was REALLY long.

Unfortunately none of our other friends were able to make it, but I think Brittney and I had a fabulous time chatting and hanging out. We only went to one of the farms (the main one: High Hill Farm) and got our goodies and wandered around.


In front of the Fudge Factory Shop, the bear is holding a sign that says, "Chocolate makes life Bearable." Amen, sir. Amen.
The weather was perfect and it wasn't overly crowded. Awesome!

Brittney had some family friends that live on Apple Hill so we stopped by and met them. Turns out they knew my grandparents back in the day. In fact my Grandpa drove them around in our carriage when they were married. (Mom-their last name is Wooden.)

Placerville was already decorated for Christmas. :) There must have been 25+ trees lining Highway 50 through the town. They were so cute!

All in all it was a fabulous afternoon full of friends and good food. (I'm seeing a trend this weekend...and I like it.)  :)

Today I am grateful for the mountains. I love the mountains. I'll take the mountains over the beach any day. And I'm grateful that I live in a place where I can easily go visit them. And I'm grateful for the smell of pine trees. It is always so refreshing and exhilarating. :) And I'm grateful for fun places like Apple Hill that are free to visit. :)
