The other week my mom, sisters, nephew and I took a trip to the town of Naples. Naples, New York is known for it's foliage covered hills and delicious grapes. In the photo above you can see a hill, and that there is surprisingly still a lot of green.

The LORD blessed us with a perfect autumn day- crisp and sunny! While in Naples we visited a truly charming antique shop, fabric shop and farm market. While at the farm market we purchased gallons of grape juice, homemade doughnuts and I found some cinnamon creamed honey for Adam. He enjoys stirring a spoonful in his tea.

             My lovely mom and sisters. Micah was cut off in this photo, not sure how I managed that...

                        But here is my dear little nephew! Isn't he the cutest?

Grape juice! The main reason for our visit. There is nothing like fresh grape juice, absolutely delicious!! While driving to Naples we passed many vineyards. It was truly a beautiful sight to see the grape vines filled with vibrant purple grapes, I wish I had taken a picture. The LORD has certainly blessed our area this year with an abundance of produce.
"Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.  You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The rivers of God will not run dry; they provide a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so.  You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops.  You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance." Psalm 65:8-11


  1. Beautiful photos! Sounds like a delightful day. Lovely family and yes, the cutest little nephew. :-)
    I've not heard of cinnamon creamed honey, but I suppose I could just mix some together and try it!
    Blessings and enjoy your day!

  2. Oh, your nephew is just too precious - what a cute face! Your Autumn day looks lovely and how wonderful to spend time with family - a sweet blessing for sure. Freshly squeezed grape juice sounds amazing. May you have a beautiful week, Sarah :)

  7. What a beautiful corner of God's creation! Of all the seasons, Autumn is the time of year when I really miss the northern climate. Your photographs are lovely, and that is one adorable nephew. :-)
