Longing for a Real Fall

Have you ever been to Apple Hill? It's located in Northern California.

My Guess is no..if you have been there then you will really understand this post! If not I'm sure you can still get the general feeling of it and appreciate Fall.

Well the entire point is that I.Miss.It! 

Apple Hill is a wonderful area about an 1 1/2 hours outside Sacramento and about 45 minutes from Lake Tahoe nestled right in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada's. 

Hubby and I moved over 2 years ago to the city {And 500 miles away} and I have dearly missed this beautiful country ever since. 

There's something about Fall that makes me long for hot apple cider, warm fires, apple picking, orchards, and the general wonderfulness of being outdoors. 

You know that little known painter Thomas Kincade
Well he grew up right down the road from Apple Hill {In my home town} and painted this beautiful picture of it

Now don't these photos just make you long for a hot fire, a warm drink and family all around?

This photo was taken in Apple Hill and was used for our Christmas pictures last year. 

Oh yeah...did I mention this is where we got married?!
 Told you I love Apple Hill

Well thanks for reading. I guess the sum of this all is that I am so ready for Fall!
Oh I know you are all saying "It Is Fall!" Yeah well...where I live the seasons don't really change

I'm ready for falling leaves and beautiful colors
I'm ready for cold weather and hot drinks.
I'm ready for great holiday meals.
I'm ready for great times with Family
I'm ready for the Holidays!

Who's with me?
