An abundance of crisp fall air, sunshine, apples and grandkids makes for a blessed day.

A day of apple picking with Grandmother Michelle Cox and her grandkids.

Autumn has arrived in the mountains of North Carolina where I live. The temperature has dropped, leaving behind those crisp fall days with just a hint of chill in the air.

The coolness strips the haze from the sky, leaving a sky so blue that it almost hurts your eyes to look at it and so clear that you can see for miles and miles across the mountains. The trees are dressed in their fall finery of rich gold and yellow, bright orange and red, and deep burgundy.

That means it’s time for corn mazes, hot chocolate and cider, hay wagon rides, and a visit to the apple orchard. I spent a glorious day there earlier this week with some of my grandchildren, buying apples and making memories. And I took lots of photos so I could invite y’all to join us!
