the last pumpkins

Thanksgiving is just less than two weeks away.

Are you making pumpkin pie? I don't think I'll make the pie but I will definitely make some delicious cream like soup with the last pumpkins of the season. A spicy soup with cinnamon croutons.

apple pie

We went apple picking and came back home with more apples than I honestly think we will be able to eat...
The first obvious think to do was to bake an apple pie, one of my favorite desserts.

a stroll through downtown Middleburg, Virginia

Just about an hour away from Washington, DC.
Middleburg, Virginia is a little town rich in tradition. A great way to spend the day or the weekend, exploring the town's antique stores, restaurants, historical sites, and vineyards.
We spent a day there two weeks ago and loved it!!

tree-lined streets and brick sidewalks

local produce

freshly baked goods perfectly packed for gift giving

don't forget the kids!

Middleburg is an equestrian mecca

love these cookie cutters

Lunch at Market Salamander was perfect!
