a bushel and a peck

My friend Casey and I went apple-picking in Hendersonville, NC this past Saturday. We had a blast. We talked, giggled, snacked and picked apples until we literally couldn't carry any more back to the car.

We decided to go to Grandad's Apples...yes, it's a little (or a lot) touristy but it was hilarious and oh-so-much fun. We got out picture taken with the local dinosaur, pet some ornery animals and got an amazing apple cider slushie.

My mom used to (and still does) say, "I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck." I never knew what a bushel or a peck was until this past weekend. And in case you were wondering, a bushel is more apples than you could possibly ever consume.

So glad you had a good time picking apples. Yes a bushel and a peck is a lot with the added great big hug around the neck so you "feel" the love. As a child I knew it meant Nannie was saying she me loved me alot, but I did not fully know the meaning until I had children of my own.
You are such a special blessing, I love you to the moon and back,
