It's officially Fall and you know what that means?? Yes apple picking season!! I love to go apple picking but here is my dilemma, I cannot eat them raw!! Yes, its true I have a cross pollen allergy that prevents me from enjoying biting into a tasty and delicious apple. Its almost a bad joke when I go apple picking with the family considering when I was younger I could eat an apple without my mouth feeling like it had an itch fest. Yes, up until the age of 27 I could enjoy that tasty fruit and all it had to offer, but these days unless its been baked in a pie or turned into apple crumb I cannot.Waaaa can you hear me crying??? My favorite thing this time of year was a carmel apple and everytime I see the kids eat one I just want to cry. So darn unfair allergies.. especially when you already know how wonderful things taste! My brother recently became allergic to shellfish and for people here in New England that would be a killer! Its a good thing he lives in LA where although you can get a lobster, you generally don't eat one. I can handle the apple allergy but LOBSTER?? I would die!
I had fun creating these prints in honor of those apples I long to eat, for those of you who can..enjoy!! eat a few for me!!
