An apple a day

hot-toddyIf you are anything like me with autumn comes with fourth quarter work related stressors, the start of logs crackling in the fireplace, blanket cuddles, apple picking and the flu.  So my original weekend plans of picking apples at the orchard with my baby, will be modified slightly…

cocktails anyone?
