With fall just around the corner, I wanted to savor the last few days of summer by going fruit picking in Upstate New York. We decided to do a little spin on the traditional fall festivities of apple picking and go peach picking instead. I’m actually more of a peach person and was so happy that there were a few crops of peaches left at the end of the season! Fruit and flower picking is something I’ve wanted to do forever, but never got a chance to do so. I couldn’t be more excited to make the drive up to Dubois Farms over Labor Day weekend.
It’s been just over a week since I’ve moved to NYC and I honestly can’t believe I live here. Waking up in the Big Apple every morning feels so surreal — seeing all the tourists in my neighborhood, who’ve come to New York from all over the world, really puts into perspective how special this place truly is.
Smoothie bowls are one of my favorite things to eat in the summer. They’re refreshing, healthy, and delicious – and not to mention, SO easy to make! Since I’m about to start my first full-time “adult” job soon, I know I won’t have much time to make breakfast in the morning, so I’ve been making a list of quick things I can whip up. Smoothie bowls are perfect because you can do most of the prep work beforehand.
