Time for the blog post I promised a few weeks ago... (Fair warning: an overload of photos for this one! I just loved this trip so much!!)
Just over two years ago, my husband and I moved up to Jersey and my sweet in laws drove with us all the way from Texas. Their recent trip up here was their first time back and we were thrilled! Josh and I had been wanting to get away from the city, so we decided to all go out to PA for a weekend in beautiful Lancaster County.
We stayed at the King's Cottage, a quintessential bed & breakfast experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone and I hope we can make it back again some time. I enjoyed visiting several markets and local boutique shops in town. A highlight of the trip was certainly the Sunset Covered Bridge tour by Strasburg Scooters. The two hour tour consisted of exploring the countryside, visiting an amish family farm, and stopping at one of Lancaster's historic covered bridges. I was in photo heaven as the golden sun set across the wide open farmland. I'm always in awe of the earth's natural beauty. Driving along the country road on the scooter was a nice change of pace in contrast to the hustle and bustle of NYC's sidewalks! We also had the great pleasure of riding on the Strasburg Railroads. I felt like I was in a train scene of a classic film! Wouldn't it be so nice if traveling could still be that luxurious?!
I can't tell you how much this weekend in PA was needed. It was wonderful for Josh and I to spend some quality time together as work as kept us both very busy and on opposite schedules. I'm very grateful for the chance to spend time with my in-laws and create fun memories with them. They are two of the most kind and generous people I know. and I'm proud to be a part of their family.
My only complaint about the trip? It wasn't long enough!
Loves: my husband, golden age movie musicals, red lipstick, fall leaves, rainy mornings, dressing up, jazz music, yellow tulips, tap dancing, and taking your photos (yes YOU!)
