The Ozarks

The climax of Fall for me has been the tradition of going down to the Ozarks to visit the DeWits each Fall. The foliage and autumn color palette are enough to twist our arms to drive 7 (ahem 9.5 Detour) hours, but getting to visit friends is the icing on the cake.

With all the stress I've been feeling this first quarter with school and other things, it was so nice to forget all my stresses and enjoy a relaxing long weekend with friends and family. As per usual, the weather didn't disappoint. In fact, we averaged 85 degree days both days we were there which called for lots of outside time enjoying wineries and Jeff and Amanda's favorite places on the strip, as well as a boat day Sunday (my favorite part). We even got in the water just to say we did it in October. I wouldn't say it was ideal water temperature, but once your legs go numb, it's all relative.

Here's a look at our mini vaca in pictures:

We're HERE!!!

Amanda's concocted Caramel Apple Sangria. YUM!
