apples to apples

on the road from wisconsin, the grand debate began on whether we would stop at an apple orchard or pumpkin patch on this grand fall tour of tours. as i rallied for both, i understood why the rest of the cast voted orchard, since you can't really carve pumpkins and take them anywhere in a van (sidebar, i beg to differ).

we stopped at a lovely orchard right before the state line of minnesota that, to our delight, had just about every apple you could imagine. honey crisp, macintosh, golden whatnot, and most importantly, caramel. weird tree.

the boys ate some slices of pie and ice cream while the girls ran through the orchard hunting and gathering. i took home a bunch and even snagged a caramel guy for myself, with nuts, thank you. i almost always choose nuts.*

WRONG! It's . . .

. . . ME!

I bet you didn't know they made Sappho masks. Welllll, sister, let me tell you something - they absolutely do. And I've got one. And I just ripped it off.

Sadly, no disguise is needed below the neck. :(

you were my second guess, but i thought long gone were the days where you'd sign in under a pseudomym (thankfully). (you heard me.)
