As fulfilling as it may be to have my first blog post of the week go up on a Monday, I’m finding that Tuesday mornings are way more conducive to life – and I’m totally okay with that : ) Nicole was in town this weekend and we had a blast playing games, visiting one of my favorite wineries (where she FINALLY met all my girlfriends!), watching golf & football, eating our weight in cheese, bread, breakfast food and chili and hiking it all off on Sunday afternoon! Tim, Ryan, Leslie, Nicole, Aidan, Mikayla and I ventured out to Newlin Grist Mill to get in a few hours of the outdoors before the Eagles played on Sunday and it was absolutely beautiful. Definitely glad I brought the “big girl” camera for this adventure!
It wasn’t all sunshine and falling leaves – Later that night (while still sitting in the same clothes I wore to Newlin Grist Mill) my allergies FREAKED THE HECK OUT and I could barely breathe. I headed home for a hot shower and tried to read in bed, before promptly passing out for 11 glorious hours. I think I maayyyy have needed it. <eye roll emoji>
If you’re local to Philadelphia, the Newlin Grist Mill in Glen Mills, PA is an awesome place to visit. I always try to plan photoshoots with families there – between the hidden trails, waterfalls and gorgeous old stone and brick and wood barns, there are a ton of beautiful places to shoot. Check their website for info on upcoming events like their Harvest Festival
We’re headed up to Hunter Mountain in NY this weekend to experience their Oktoberfest event and I could not be more excited to spend a weekend outdoors drinking beer out of steins with some pretty awesome people. Tomorrow is the October edition of “Currently” so check back to see what I’ve been up to lately besides sneezing and drinking wine! ; )
