You and Me, Under The Apple Tree

I should be doing homework right now, but I am a notorious procrastinator so alas! Here I am!

Chris and I went apple picking two weekends ago before he went back to Boston. I love going apple picking: A. Because I love apples. B. Because it's such an autumny thing to do. C. Apple orchards are just so cute and country-esque. They're so pretty and peaceful...if there's not too many people at the orchard that day. There's something exciting about picking fruit right off a tree. It's such a simple little pleasure. When I have my own house someday, I want to plant an apple tree in my yard...or possibly have a lot of land and have my own tiny apple orchard. :) They make me think of simpler times.

We picked so many apples! I plan to make a pie which is exciting because apple pie is my favorite pie. Actually, it's pretty much the only pie I'll eat. I'm definitely more of a cake person.

We found a baby apple that is sitting on my dresser at this very moment. It's so small and cute! I want to preserve it forever, but I can only find information on how to preserve cut apples. :\

We used the good ol' self timer and took a couple of pictures under one of the apple trees. The title of this entry is a lyric from one of my all-time favorite songs. Chris knew this and suggested we take some pictures together under an apple tree. He's a keeper. :)

[Nom nom nom.]

Along with our apples, we each got a little bottle of apple cider. They make it with the fresh apples and it's the best cider I've ever had. I wish I bought a bigger bottle! Sarah wants to go apple picking and Meaghan and I have been going every year for the past couple of years now, so hopefully I'll be going back very soon!

Unexpected Hiatus

I pretty much suck at this whole blogging thing. I'm so inconsistent and just all around lazy. It's not like I haven't been taking ANY pictures. I just haven't been taking outfit pictures, although I do have some outfits that need to be properly photographed. My friend Sarah and I are doing a photoshoot tomorrow which I'm very excited for!

My blog tends to be more fashion-related, but it's also meant to be a bit personal-a little glimpse into my life and mind. So I feel like I need to start sharing more of my every day boring as it may be. I'm a creative and silly person, so I don't know why I can't convey that over to here. When I really think about it, I can chalk it up to three things: plain laziness, being distracted by all of my other responsibilities, and being distracted by my emotional struggles. I'm at a part in my life where I'm going through a lot of change. I'm graduating college in the spring and I need to start making a lot of big scary life decisions...which I've never been good at. I've also realized that I'm still trying to find myself and that I'm completely hung up on trying to become the person I want to be...which leads to me worrying that I won't ever become her. The bottom line is that I am completely anxiety-ridden and it's been weighing me down.

So I am sorry that I haven't been a good blogger. I want to make this blog the best it can be and right now it's just not. I can keep telling myself that I will make it better and blog more...but what usually happens is that I blog more often for about a week and then just put it aside. I think I need to accept the fact that this blog will happen when it happens. Maybe I'm not ready to be as devoted to my blog as I'd like to be. Maybe we need to see other people for now or maybe I really just need to twist my own arm. This is something I want to do and I don't know why I'm not doing it. There's nothing stopping me except myself.

In case you've been wondering what I've been up to over the past month, here is a little pictorial review:

Shoving a giant Pikachu into my car after Chris won it at Six Flags. Our friends were stuck in the backseat with it. haha.

Spending a day shopping in NYC with Chris, Nadia, and her boyfriend Jon.

Posing with my new Adventure Time shirt! :D...

...As well as my new penguin shirt.

Being silly in parks with Sarah.

It is officially autumn today! Autumn is my favorite season and I don't think it will ever be possible for me to put into words how I feel about it. I have such a deep love for the season. Speaking of autumny goodness...Chris and I went apple picking on Sunday! But more on that in my next post. :)
