IINSPIRATION MONDAY...the bridge

Eva Mendes...the inspiration

Hi darling readers, how was your weekend?  Mine was so good!  Spent my time keeping busy with the yard sale Saturday and then on Sunday, Kathy, her 18month old niece, Rob, the dogs and I hopped in Kathy's SUV and headed up to New Hope, Pa.  It is one of my most favorite places to visit in Pennsylvania.  We stopped at the Golden Nugget flea market in Lambertville, New Jersey and then found great parking for lunch in the beautiful, quaint, town at the Lambertville Station for my coveted Bloody Mary.  I love that drink, but mostly love the huge, green olives, celery, cheese cubes, lime and lemon they add to it.  It's a freakin meal, the kick it has with just enough spice makes me a very happy girl!!!  I love that we were able to bring the dogs on the outside deck for lunch...they were such good girls. 

After lunch we headed for the foot bridge that connects Lambertville, New Jersey to New Hope, Pennsylvania.   It is the most beautiful walk from one state to the next and a unique town awaits you on the other side.  We stopped for a coffee and visited one of the vintage clothing stores chock full of great items.  Rob took the dogs for a walk through the town as Kathy, little K, and I browsed around.   We headed back over the bridge to the car and headed home...just a gorgeous day all around. 



 

 
Have a great day!  Thank you Two Birds for hosting!
