Quote of the Week- It's Apple Week!

by - Sunday, September 28, 2014

The first weekend of October is Applefest in Franklin, PA, our hometown. Since The Boy's family all work constantly through  the weekend, we will probably never go home for it (until of course we live in Pittsburgh- a classmate told me at our reunion that she only talks about moving to Pittsburgh with certainty, no ifs. I am using this tactic now. WHEN we move back to Pennsylvania, we might still go back for Applefest). This year, as I have reached the no fly zone of my pregnancy, we doubly won't be going home.

But we have mastered the fine art of celebrating that one time Johnny Appleseed came through in our own way on our own coast. Mostly, we eat apple type things (and hot sausage sandwiches) and decorate with apples and embarrassing crafts. As you might imagine, I am pumped for this whole thing, and the house already looks a lot more like fall. So this week's theme is about Applefest, in Franklin and elsewhere, and coming up with traditions to make where you are at feel more like home.

"Living in a small town...is like living in a large family of rather uncongenial relations. Sometimes it’s fun, and sometimes it’s perfectly awful, but it’s always good for you. People in large towns are like only-children.”- Joyce Dennys
