for the past three years we’ve made the trek up to blue ridge, ga with the teague fam for a weekend away. every year we stay in a different and equally amazing cabin. see the cabins from years past here and here. we always go the last weekend of october which has proven to be the best time of the year for so many reasons. we always visit mercier orchards for a little apple picking. october 31st is the last day the orchard is open for apple picking & also just about the time the honey crisp apples are ready. it’s also pretty much peak season for autumnal color (although this year the leaves were taking their sweet time making the change). one day while we were shopping around downtown blue ridge, a local woman told us they call visitors “leaf lookers” which i thought was a pretty cute nickname. although we get out and about during the day, most of our time in north ga is usually spent in our pjs playing games, eating comfort food and watching football. we love this little teague tradition and look forward to it all year.
apple bowling… or bocce ball. either way, no apples were harmed in the making of these photos.
and a few random shots from our cabin… the view is always my favorite part!
until next year, blue ridge!
