The APPLE of my eye

In case you have never been to or heard of my home town, I will tell you, Wenatchee, WA is the Apple Capital of the World.  Mind you, it might be self proclaimed, but it is a well earned title that we take rather seriously!   This year, the state of Washington will grow/pack/ship over 110 million 40 pound boxes of fresh apples for out of hand consumption, world wide.  

I've had the honor of representing the incredibly irresistibly sweet Ambrosia apple and Daisy Girl Organics this year for CMI Growers.  

They have been incredibly supportive, believing in and helping me pursue by dreams, while also providing me with fresh apples to keep my body fueled and belly happy every day!  Thank you SO MUCH!!
