Belated Christmas Wishes

It never ceases to amaze me how time just manages to slip away, oh so quickly. December has been a complete run away! You all know the all too familiar "Holey, moley Christmas is here!" frantic pace!

I have been happily busy getting things ready for Christmas with Family and Friends, but seem to have just caught up to my cyber-friends! They seem to have it all under control... even running contests to win some their prized prints. Just check out this lovely print you can win over at Kate's Chronicles very lovely indeed. Oh, don't forget to congratulate her on her two year blog anniversary while you're there!

Hope you had a great Christmas!

Sugar Pup: History is all around us

New Jersey is full of history, as one of the original colonies there is lots to learn on a Sunday drive. A few weeks back we traveled to Washington Crossing, we certainly had a beautiful day!

My photo buddy Sugar Pup came along for the ride, she really likes exploring..

We even peered through the window of the Nelson House, the old glass and reflection gives the view a very dream like feeling.

Autumn was all around and the view from the foot bridge was spectacular! The D&R Canal has been a favorite of ours this fall, and provides a nice reflection here.

The bridge in the background leads to Pennsylvania, and more of the Washington Crossing history. We didn't have much time to explore the Pennsylvania side this day but did wind up traveling north to New Hope.

Until next time ~ Live, Love, Laugh
