Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For this post I asked a co-worker to take the pictures in order to give my sons a break.  Sometimes they complain even though I provide them with food, shelter, water and lots of love! 

As you know I work in West Chester, PA, and similar to the Marlton office it is surrounded by greenery which makes for a better background than my backyard.

This outfit was simple black and white, a classic combination.

Hello Friends…I’m back and so did son and I – we went back to Cowgirl’s Creamery and it was definitely worth it.  I am not a big sweet-eater especially ice cream, but the thought of having Farm Fresh Hand Dipped Ice Cream for dessert was too hard to resist.  So much so that I ate my 2 scoops of Coconut ice cream as I was preparing dinner!

The cows were back in the barn at Emerson Farms but the goats were out at Cowgirl’s.

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

The beginning of a new week and the 1st sunny Sunday in August was a fantastic day.  Before going to the grocery store my son and I stopped at Cowgirls Creamery in anticipation of eating some hand dipped ice cream made with fresh milk from down the road at Emerson Farms.  Unfortunately we arrived too early in the afternoon so we decided to take a few pictures instead.

Middletown, DE

Emerson Farms has been in existence since 1947, and is less than 5 miles from our house, however, it was the first time I’ve ever stopped.  The recent road construction created a Roundabout which makes it easier to enter Jamison Corner Road where the farm is located.

I tried to explain to my son how blessed we are to live so closely to an active farm and how fresh ice cream tastes better than anything purchased in a grocery store.

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday

As per yesterday’s post here are a few more pictures from my day trip to Marlton.  It’s was so lovely that is made the drive on the Jersey Turnpike bearable.  Unfortunately I lost the sense of serenity when a rainstorm hit driving home!OOTD 7 23 13 022  Thankfully, I don’t have allergies

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

There definitely should be an extra day between Saturday and Sunday because trying to squeeze in chores and relaxation into two can be exhausting!  I trust you all had an enjoyable weekend and hopefully are half way through a stress free Monday.

Today’s outfit is a simple two piece skirt and sleeveless tank that I must have bought about 10 years ago and thanks to the elastic waistband, I will probably have it another 10 years!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For me Thursday is the best day of the week, we’ve made it through Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and start to look forward to the weekend. Thursday is a heads-down day at work, tying up loose ends, finishing up the weekly to-do list in anticipation of an easy breezy Friday.

Thursday is also a day of reflection some even define it as Thankful Thursday. As we rush through the week from one event to another, it’s nice to take a few minutes to think about and then speak aloud for which we are grateful. Speaking positivity into the atmosphere is a good way to keep life’s trials and tribulations in check.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

Today is going to be another hot and steamy day, and this is actually Heatwave #4.  If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the 5-day forecast for the Delaware Valley – HOT HOT and HOTTER.   The Meteorologist stated he preferred the cold and snow of winter but I love the heat of the summer.  Deciding what to wear isn’t a challenge since I’m in an air conditioned car or office most of the day and I was going to wear all black but decided to throw in a little pink.

Which do you prefer, the cold of  Winter or the heat of Summer?
