an orchard, girl talk, & too much cheese

visiting apple orchards was like tops of the things we pined for in our sweaty days of island dwelling.  All things fall really (we plan on addressing the pumpkin spice coffee this week as well).  Lucky for us we got our apple orchard on this past weekend.  Bibi had scoped out a new place near lake Geneva and us girls checked it out.

but mostly I spent the weekend slothing around and talking with these ladies; Jill & Jess (both of who get rockstar awards for flying in from far away and arranging said flying in and being way preggers and still hanging respectively)....

They knew me in my college days of having crushes on TA's, starting papers the night before they were due, boo-tay dancing until wee hours, building houses together, and general young dumb stuff you do when you are figuring out your place in the world.   It was good and a long time coming and numerous times I had the thought that I am not cool enough for the amazing friends I have in my life (shhhh, don't tell them).  My friendship with these ladies is cherished and reminds me how special it is to have people in your life that make you want to be better but love you even if you never get there.  We stayed up until 1 or 2am every night talking everything life and we ate way too much much cheese, yo.  Yep, I'll say it again: it is a gift to be known.

Yea for cheese and gluten! It was a great weekend - but could my ginormous nursing boobs look any bigger in that photo? Dear lord why must my cleavage seem so front and center to me in any photo with you? It's like your wedding all over again! Some one should have warned me against that pattern!
