Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Hubby and I left early Saturday morning so we could attend the Wedding of my 2nd cousin Kyton Carolina, who was getting married to Shivon Anderson in Mt. Vernon, NY.  We wanted to be on the road before 9:30 am so that we could cross the GW Bridge before noon…unfortunately it didn’t happen.

It was smooth sailing going across the Delaware Memorial Bridge

New Jersey

Driving the New Jersey Turnpike wasn’t too bad either…until Exit 11 and that’s when the backup occurred due to road construction!

New York City

Finally the skyline of NYC

George Washington Bridge

Crossed the GW way off schedule

We finally made it to New Rochelle at 1:00 pm. but with less than an hour to relax and converse with our friends before dressing.  Sherri and I sat outside and had a Barcardi Mojito which definitely helped me unwind, hubby stay inside and talked with Curtis.

Unfortunately my family fun ended abruptly when our son called to tell us he was rear-ended in the school parking lot after football practice.  Hubby and I never made it to the reception at Glen Island Park instead we turned around and headed back to Delaware.

What a WWW – Whirlwind Weekend Wedding!

BTW – Kyton was a Jr. Usher in our Wedding 23 years ago – talk about feeling old!

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 Hump Day Wednesday!

In my current job I no longer have much of an opportunity to travel and my daily commute from Middletown, DE to West Chester, PA can be quite boring.  Yesterday I had the chance to make a site visit to Marlton, NJ, or as I like to call it, “Exit 4 on the Jersey Turnpike”.  Not to say that driving straight away on the turnpike wasn’t boring because it was, what made it all worthwhile was the location itself.

The building is surrounded with a man made pond that has ducks, a fountain and beautiful flora.  The Atrium is also serene and peaceful with tall palm trees, plants and flowers.  I think coming into this building on a daily would put anyone in the right frame of mind no matter what the traffic was like in getting there.  Here are just a few pictures of the outside, I will post the interior shots tomorrow.
