Apple Season.

Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love everything from the sweater weather to the fall foliage. I recently went to my local cider mill and an apple orchard. I went to Mayer Brothers Cider Mill. It is a cute little cider mill in Buffalo, New York. They have homemade apple cider donuts, candy apples, some local cheese, and apple cider slushies, what more can you ask for?  

I also went to a local apple orchard. I try to go apple picking every year, it is just a fun fall activity you never get too old for.

Tis the Season.

Hey guys! Can you believe it is already December? This month is going to fly by. I thought I would just share a few photos from this weekend. My sister and I went to an adorable Christmas Tree Farm in Springville, New York which is about 40 minutes outside of Buffalo. They had cookies and hot chocolate, you are able to buy festive wreaths, and of course cut down your own tree. It is such a fun thing with the people you love around Christmas.

Hotel Henry in Buffalo, New York.

Hey guys! I am sure the ones from Buffalo have heard of Hotel Henry but those who aren't from our beautiful city, it is a very cool building/restaurant that was built in the 1800s. Back in the day, it was used as a hospital for mental illness. I recently went to brunch at their restaurant, 100 Acres: The Kitchens at Hotel Henry and oh my gosh it was amazing. The atmosphere reminded me of New York City. I ordered a mimosa which came with a couple raspberries and blueberries for presentation. For my meal, I got 2 fried eggs, maple bacon, thick sourdough bread toast, and potatoes served with greens. Everything was so good and reasonably priced. They also try to use local products as well. After brunch we took a little walk around the building. It was stunning. They have a few floors that you are able to explore. Each hallway is decorated with different pieces of art. It was beautiful. So bottom line if you are in Buffalo and are looking for a fabulous place to go to brunch, have a drink, or just wanna check the building out, I highly recommend it.
