As I was driving down the country road on the way to the peach orchard at Phillips Farms, I thought “what a perfect day this is!” The sun was shining, I had my guy to my side, an open road ahead, and peach picking soon to come. During the hour drive to the orchard, I thought about what I was going to create with all those delectable and juicy peaches I was about to pick. As soon as we got there, I jumped out of the car, anxiously thinking “what if everyone else has taken the best of the bunch?” I moseyed on over to get a basket for us, grabbed a map, and my boyfriend led the way. The peaches were in abundance! They all looked delicious, especially fresh off the tree, and I knew this would make for some great peach tart. As we walked through the orchards I noticed him nervously looking around. He saw something in the distance, quickly said for me to follow him, and beneath the orchards I saw a beautiful picnic blanket set up with fresh flowers, godiva chocolates, and champagne.
He got down on one knee and proposed to me. Long story short…I said yes!
I came back from that peach picking trip with a basket of fresh delicious and juicy peaches and a wonderful new fiancé! I say that was my most successful peach picking adventure yet!
