I have always wanted to go apple picking in Julian. I also always thought it would be some big “thing” that we would plan, obsess about, and have on the calendar months in advance.
The other day Daniel said to me, “Let’s go apple picking tomorrow.” That is something I really love about my husband, that he says things like, “Let’s just go!” Don’t get me wrong, he is thoughtful, and a wonderful planner. He looked up which places to go, which places are best, made calls, looked at websites, etc. etc., but he is definitely more impulsive than I am. I actually think he is the perfect balance of impulsive and planner. I love that about him.
So we went apple picking.
It was hot and it only took about 30 minutes to pick our two bags of apples (which was completely different than I expected). But the kids LOVED picking the apples, we ate apple pie after, and we had a really fun day.
