Yo, long time no post!
About a month ago, my family felt the wanderlust and hitched up camper to go stay at Douglas Lake for a weekend. And I’m glad we did because it’s GORGEOUS over there! Douglas Lake is right at the foot of the Smokies, and the views were incredible.
Y’all, summer is going by WAY. TOO. FAST. I can’t handle it. Why did summer have to be so short? For us, it’s been a busy season, and a wet season. Unfortunately, it’s rained just a little TOO much. But yet, we still enjoy a bounty of good food – fruit from our orchard, apples and peaches, and veggies from the garden. Beets, onions, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, and watermelon.
I LOVE this picture of all of us ♥
Hey, y’all! Today I’ve got the rest of the pictures of our trip up to Allison’s farm. You already saw our Best Friends’ Photoshoot and their Family Photoshoot, and now here are all the pictures from some of the things we did together. We seriously had SO. MUCH. FUN. with Allison’s family. All her siblings are such great sports and patient with people who don’t know how to play games (i.e. my brother and I XD).
Allison and I have an unusual friendship. We’re best friends, and yet we live over three hundred miles apart. “What’s so unusual about that?” you might ask. That in and of itself is not out of the ordinary; many best friends have had to move away from each other and keep up their friendship long-distance. What makes our friendship unique is that neither of us had to move away: in fact, we became best friends before we had even met each other in real life.
Some of you may remember my old Around the Farm series. It’s been two years since I last posted an episode, so I’m picking up where I left off! I get a lot of miscellaneous photos, so this is a great place to put them all.
Much is growing on the farm! I love watching all the plants from seedlings and transplants to full-fledged fruit. This year we have so many veggies! Tomatoes, summer squash and zucchini, cabbages, broccoli, onions, watermelons, honeydew, cantaloupe, potatoes, blueberries and cucumbers to name most of them.
