Summer is nearly over. Only a few days until the fall equinox. September offers both summer and autumn in the same day. It feels lively to harvest, bask in the sun, swim, and wear a sweater that evening. It's the simple things that please me so much. Watching the seasons come and go and experiencing our seasonal traditions is one if my favorite things. This September has been perfect, and sharing it with my loved ones makes my heart full.

Apple cider pressing in my parents backyard has been a tradition of ours for as long as I can remember. The press we have was built by my Grandpa Lagler. We harvested the apples from the yard, likely a tree that was planted by my grandparents when they lived at this house. We also threw in some pears from the yard too. The juice was as delicious as it always tastes, pure goodness. Fall traditions are a favorite of mine. I'm looking forward to applesauce next.
