Fall, ya'll!

Alright, I'm giving in. I've been holding out on acknowledging Fall's arrival because I just can't correlate pumpkins and 85 degree weather. 

(Have you heard that if you say "Pumpkin Spice Latte" in the mirror three times a white girl in yoga pants will appear and tell you her favorite things about Fall?)

Lifestyles of the unemployed means I got to spend my Monday with Steven at the pumpkin patch. We drove up to Mountain Valley Ranch in Ramona, stopped by Ramona Cafe on the way (did not eat the 1/2 pound cinnamon bun, I resisted!) then made our way up the mountain.

I was on the hunt for the perfect Cinderella pumpkin, but pickings were slim, I think we were a little late to the game.

This was at the top of the stairs in the middle of the corn maze. Turns out I'm claustrophobic even when it's a starchy vegetable.

But guys, the best part of the whole thing was my new best friend, the buffalo.

Turns out buffalo really only like you if you scratch their booty like a dog. 

For those of you who were asking about the place I posted about yesterday, this is for you! 

I found this little family business called the Land of Milk and Honey yesterday. It's a family farm located in Fallbrook where they raise LaMancha goats and currently have 11 hives of bees. I was excited to make this connection simply because the husband told me he teaches bee keeping classes and can help me get situated with my new hive!
The wife is an organic chemist who creates all the products from their own goat milk, honey harvested from their bees, and herbs they grow such as lavender and sage! 

Their kids even paint the paper the soap is wrapped it. It's a family business from start to finish. My favorite of the soaps I bought is the Mountain Man...it smells like a Christmas tree!

They also make body balms, sea salt and sugar scrubs. You can visit their website to buy some of their products, or to even schedule a visit up to their farm!
