Home is Where the Heart Is

This weekend I made a quick trip home.  My brother was home for the weekend, and I don't anticipate being able to see him again until Christmas.  So it was a great relaxing time.  I always love coming home at this time of the year, even though it is a super busy time for my parents.  They have a family farm and are busy harvesting.  There is just something about harvest time that makes my heart very happy.

Things I love about home during fall
1.  The smell of corn.
2.  Going to the apple orchard (owned and operated by one of my best friends' parents).

  • apple donuts
  • apple cider
  • carmel apples

3.  Riding in tractors/semis.
4.  Hearing the corn go through the augers or emptying from the semi.
5.  The brisk (not COLD) air.
6.  Pumpkin flavored/scented anything.

It was so nice to be home and see my family:)

HI! I'm glad you had the chance to visit home! I didn't realize you're from Illinois. All of my family live in Ohio & my mom's family is originally from Racine, WI. Small world :)

Jen - I can't believe your family was from Racine! I went to Carthage and student taught at Park High School in Racine! I live within an hour of there now. It really is a small world! Thank you for BOO-ing me! Your blog post was super sweet!

Cynthia - Cute linky party idea:)
