Home Sweet New Jersey

Ah, to be back in the clutches of my beautiful Garden State, it's a wonderful thing. I thought I would share some of the images from my first weekend home of this trip to give of better impression of why I'm "stranded" in Chicago, despite it's many good qualities.

On the road back from the airport in Trenton.

My dad's new apple tree with little green apples!

My mother, demonstrating our picturesque backyard in all it's verdant glory.

The most majestic dog who ever lived, Beau, my best friend's St. Bernard.

He's also the most camera shy.

My first glimpse of the entirely rebuilt beach club, perfect sky to boot.

These are all my favorite places to be when I'm home in the summer, the places I go to immediately not because I just love them, but because they're a part of me. Of course, it would be disingenuous to pretend its this beautiful all the time, so I must mention we're having some punishing thunderstorms today. But I refuse to let that dampen my spirits, har har har.

I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!
