perks of the garden state

Before I came to school, I convinced my parents to go pumpkin picking with me. Not that it took much convincing. That trip turned into a pumpkin/ apple/ berry/ corn picking extravaganza. Unfortunately the farm we were visiting (Alstede) closes at 7, my parents were done with work at 5, and thanks to rush hour traffic we got there at 6, giving us a mere hour to roam the grounds. But in that 1 hour I experienced more "autumn" than I have in the entire month of October in LA.

It's a tough toss up between fall and spring for the coveted spot of favorite season-- but I think pumpkin picking, candy corn, and oversized sweaters that can hide the largest of food babies give fall the advantage. This sweater in particular reminds me of a bowl of fruit loops, and is a far cry from my usual palette of black, white, and blue. I bought it during one of my "I need to wear more color" bouts. While I wore it for comfort, I realized after the fact that I looked like a farmer blending in with the various fruits and vegetables. It is what it is.
