Naples Grape Festival

One of our favorite things to do in the fall is take a drive south around the finger lakes. Naples is a tiny town on the edge of lake Canandaigua. it is surrounded with beautiful vineyards, rolling hills and has the best grape juice, grapes pies and really fun little shops including a quilt store.

The leaves are not in full color yet so we will have more color in the next few weeks.

Along the way we always find a few farmers markets full of pumpkins, seasonal veggies and beautiful mums....this one was really cute with the farmer in his overalls and the field of pumpkins right off the road.

Lisa! Can I really come and spend a weekend taking pictures with you??? How fun would that be. I've always wanted to go to New England in the fall. Seriously. That would be so fun. Some day when I am rich. And a photographer. Now my reality is third graders, cursive, and multiplication.

I too love your blog. And your eye for beauty. Just keep taking pictures. That's what I do. And the more I take them the more I realize I still need to learn, but it's just this hunger I have that never goes away. I long for the day when I wake up to just do photography and be a mom. That is my dream.
