Yes! My fiancé and I are in Wisconsin with my family, eeking out the last little bit of summer!
The nice thing about working from home is that Steven and I can do it from anywhere!
So we’re on the lake, hanging with my nephews and our family! And we are having a blast. But boy, it is chilly up here! Highs in only the low 50’s!
But the cold isn’t stopping us from having a great time! We’re bundling up in ski gear and going out on the boat!
Yesterday was a blast too – we went to a local farm, and took a tractor ride through the corn fields to their pumpkin patch, where we got to pick pumpkins straight off the vine!
Talk about pumpkin picking at its most authentic.
But I’ve gotta tell ya – taking this tractor ride through the tall corn fields, with the big sky behind us and crisp fall air, it was almost surreal. This was about as opposite as you can get from New York City, and we loved every minute.
The little boys were mesmerized by the tractor and the pristine nature all around us.
We all were commenting that this was an experience we’d remember for a long time.
One thing that I really appreciated about visiting the farm was how you could see where our food came from. We were riding in the tractor past tomatoes, and peppers and squash, and watermelon, and garlic. And it was powerful to remember that food actually comes from the ground, and not a plastic carton at the grocery store.
But the best part of this weekend is just being together with family. I think it’s so important to just get away and unplug from technology and be present with the people you love. Though we do have a TV up here, we haven’t turned it on once, and instead have relied on the old school record turn table that my parents just got. Beatles anyone?
So if you need me, you’ll have to come search for me in the cornfield!
And until then, have a great night and I’ll see you on Wednesday with a PHENOMENAL recipe!
