Winter Storm: Athena…

Winter storm, Athena, barreled through New Jersey and the Northeast this week. More power outages, downed trees, winds, and this time SNOW.. about 7 inches to be exact. Its been a crazy 2 weeks here in NJ. Fingers crossed that this isn’t a preview of how rough our winter will be! 

The upside… the snow was beautiful first thing in the morning 🙂

Have a great Mother’s Day weekend!

Nothing too fancy today, or terribly artistic, but definitely special! Lucy wanted to wish all the Mother’s out there happy mother’s day! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend with friends and family! (oh and for this weekend, let someone else do the grocery shopping!) 🙂


On Saturday, we put Lucy in her stroller and Frankie on his leash and went hiking through Allaire State Park . There is a small colonial village and multiple trails through the woods. We hiked the green and red trails. This is one of the views along the way. I love the hidden bridge and of course all the color (yes, i took this shot last fall..). The view looked the same this past Saturday, just minus the red! We had our hands full with Lucy and Frankie so no photos this trip but definitely next time! 🙂 For more info on the park
