We had the perfect fall filled weekend with friends and family. We went off the grid for a couple days into the middle of nowhere, like the places when you’re driving and you see amish buggy signs, fields of cows and just beautiful fall foliage flanking the roads.
Venturing to the middle of nowhere is a yearly tradition that B and I have been doing for five years… finding our way back to Southern Tier Brewery in Lakewood, NY. We especially try and go in the late summer months/fall so that we can get a taste of their delicious seasonal beers – Pumking and Warlock. We love the spot and always enjoy each other’s company catching up, laughing and making plans for the future.
The rest of the weekend was the perfect mix of rest and relaxation with a taste of catching up with family and friends. Saturday we went to a local brewery called Rohrbach Brewing Company to grab some lunch and taste a few beers with K + T. From lunch we headed to this beyond adorable little farm that had monstrous pumpkins, gorgeous gourds, colorful mums, and lots and lots of beautiful colors. It was like a dream and this perfect little spot was run by a husband and wife, they had their trophy pumpkins on display for people to admire – they had to be close to 50 pounds or more. Although, I did a pretty great job of racking up our own batch of pumpkins – we weighed out at 70 pounds worth of pumpkins and gourds! Whoops!
It was great catching up with friends and family, getting in some much needed fall activities, sipping some delicious beers, and being able to sleep in a few days too! October is one of my most favorite months and this long weekend full of all things that make it perfect was exactly why. What do you love about the fall?
