This weekend my boyfriend and I took part in my favorite Hamptons tradition, apple picking in Water Mill at Milk Pail Farms. Last year I did a bit of research and found this farm, learning it was a beautiful place to experience fall’s harvest. We fell in love with the rows and rows of bountiful apple trees and patches of brightly colored pumpkins every size and shape, and knew we had to come back every year around this time. Milk Pail also grows various squashes, sunflowers, peaches and other produce all year round. Yesterday we picked McIntosh, Jonamac, Zestar, and Royal Gala apples, all sweet, crisp and ready for snacking and baking all week long.
This summer I feel like I’ve traveled the entire globe! My job has led me to so many exciting opportunities, and I feel so lucky to call what I do every day, “work”. Just adds to the list of reasons why I love social media so much. A recent business trip blurred the lines between work and vacation for 5 days straight. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is incredibly beautiful and the hotel that I work for is one of a kind. It may be the most stunning hotel I’ve ever been to. Every morning I rose with the sun, drank coffee on my terrace, listened to the sounds of gentle waves crashing along the shore, swam in the pool, and then worked the rest of the day shooting and exploring this wonderful destination. I hope to visit again soon!
If you ever find yourself in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, make the drive to Flora Farms. This “farm” is without a doubt one of the most magical places I’ve ever visited. Everything from the dessert landscape, to the beautiful green gardens, to the giant sunflowers and colorful sky at sunset, this is a destination in itself. Flora’s Field Kitchen is now officially home to one of my favorite meals I’ve ever had. Most all of the ingredients were grown on site and each dish was inspired by the local flavors of Los Cabos. It was hard to capture such magic on film, but below are a few Candied moments.
