Startled, Pippin asks, "What about second breakfast?" Strider says nothing and walks on. Soon though he tosses an apple from behind a bush, which Merry catches. A second tossed apple smacks Pippin in the forehead.

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago when we went apple picking. 
Such a fun family tradition during the autumn months.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and survived Black Friday/ Cyber Monday.
I bought a couple of books (duh) and ordered prints made by the very talented Chris from HandLetteringCo.

Also, only ten (seven if you live in Belgium) more sleeps until ‘The Hobbit – The Desolation of Smaug’ comes out in theaters. Can’t wait!



  1. lovely post. apple picking would be so wonderful during fall. I live in Washington and I've never even done it! I'll be adding this to my bucket list.

  2. That was my favorite part of the movie. When he said "What about second breakfast." So cute!!

  3. gorgeous shots, i can just taste the apples x

  4. i used to go apple picking and seeing this photos makes me so nostalgic for it. now that we live south, there are just no apple orchards here. i too am looking forward to the second hobbit film! can't wait for it!

  5. Ik wil ook gaan appelplukken!!! Mijn mama heeft dat vroeger nog als vakantiejob gedaan.. :D

  6. So, so pretty. You're a talented photographer!

  7. What lovely apple picking photos! Always such a fun, fall season experience :] Those ones look yummy too

  8. It's officially winter here in Michigan and I am missing autumn like crazy. This photos are absolutely beautiful and made me smile. I'm glad somewhere people are still getting to enjoy all those beautiful fall colors!

  9. reminds me of my time apple picking a couple of months ago! it's one of my favorite things to do during fall. beautiful pictures~

  10. Ah, makes me want to gather up fresh apples and bake a pie. Love the reference to the second breakfast, something I enjoy partaking in sometimes, too.


Merci beaucoup!

Come a little bit closer, hear what I have to say. Just like children sleepin', we could dream this night away.
