PICTURE SHOW: FUN WEEKEND ROAD TRIP TO EXPLORE HISTORIC SMITHVILLE


Happy Monday, Blogland!

Hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend.  Mine was a beautiful surprise, and I continue to be in awe of the beauty that can be hidden in places you never realized.

I headed on a mini road trip to explore Historic Smithville and the Village Greene in NJ, about 2 hours from Manhattan.  Then, enjoyed a nice meal at The Smithville Inn, which has been there since 1787.  

I grew up in NJ, and somehow was never aware of this gem of a town.  It is one of the most charming little villages I've seen, and so full of history.

I had a wonderful time, and below are some pictures from the fun adventure.  

If you ever are in the area, definitely stop in and check it out.  If you've been there, tell me what you enjoyed most in the comments below. :)

Cream Chiffon Dress (which I featured here) is from Forever 21.
Mint Necklace is from Charming Charlie.
Delicate Gold Bars Necklace is from Freshie & Zero.
The lake there is so peaceful and pretty at sunset.
Happiness is... Chocolate Ice Cream in a Chocolate Cone.
Star Wars themed nutcrackers, my brother-in-law would love the Yoda, and cupcake ornaments, which reminded me of my best friend, Lena, at an adorable little Holiday shop...smelled like Christmas in July.
So many cute ducks and a magical sunset, oh how I love sunsets!
