Apple Picking

Grab a couple of friends, some comfy boots and let’s go apple picking! This is a fun outdoor activity that makes you feel just a little bit like normal. You can do it with one or two other couples, or a just a few friends. There is plenty of space to keep safe distances from anyone else who may be enjoying the farm as well. Many locations offer warm apple cider and doughnuts so it is a great way to wind down as you catch up.

Tips: Remember to pack your purse!

Fall Photoshoot

Now this idea is not just for fun, but also to create lasting memories in a non-traditional way. An outdoor professional photoshoot is a perfect way to do just that. If this year has taught us anything, it has most certainly taught us that tomorrow is not promised and to hold our friends dear. All that is needed is a
photographer and the great outdoors. Gather a few of your closest friends, and let the camera click, capturing laughs and sincere moments of gratitude for one another.

A Private Wine Tasting

Wine and friends are always a perfect combination. Add the beautiful weather and fall foliage, and you have the perfect backdrop to a wonderful day spent. This is another setting where there is an abundance of space to remain safe as you socialize. Treasure the new memories, raise your glasses and toast to friendship, love, life, and health.

I hope you’re all well and safe during these times. And that you get to connect with your friends, even if just for a stroll in the park or a facetime chat. It’ll do you some good đź’ś
