I know this is so cliche, but I seriously love fall. The changing of the leaves and the crisp lower temps make me so very happy. You could say I've been happy all week long as a result of last weekend's Bubbles & Bloggers Field Trip where we traded our normal bottomless brunch for a day full of fab fall activities! Today's FAB Friday post is dedicated to fall, my Bubbles & Bloggers ladies, Butler's Orchard, and Rocklands Farm and Winery. Whew, now I call that a full list of fabulous!
When I started to plan the October meet up, Caroline had suggested a pumpkin patch outing to Butler's Orchard. Because, what is more perfect than pumpkins to celebrate fall? I'll tell you what is more perfect- pumpkins and wine- the most perfect fall pairing! So, in an effort to plan the most perfect fall day, I coordinated a bus rental from DC to Butler's Orchard and Rocklands Farm Winery last Saturday and 17 local bloggers and I made our way out to rural Maryland to celebrate fall.
Butler's Orchard was the first stop of the day. We arrived to the orchard and were instantly greeted by all the fall feels- crisp air, fall winds, pumpkins, scarecrows, and hay rides. We immediately piled into a hay ride and laughed and joked the entire trip out to the pumpkin patch, as if we were all kids again. There was something about the entire setting that had us all on cloud 9! Not to mention the scenery was gorgeous and we couldn't have asked for a better day. We spent our time at the pumpkin patch, which was so much fun! I can't remember the last time I actually visited a pumpkin patch, so to me, this was a really fun and different experience. After the pumpkin patch, we returned to the fall festival where there was a band, food, games, and activities. I wish we could have spent more time here, but we had to make our way on to the winery. Butler's Orchard left a great impression on me and I can't wait to go back again next year! Thank you, Caroline, for introducing us to this great spot (and also for the outfit pics!).
