Road Trip

We have been traveling for the past week.  I scheduled blogs to post while I was away.  If I haven't visited you this week, now you know why!  I will catch up this weekend.

We went to upstate NY for our niece's wedding.  It was so beautiful.  She got married in a beautiful state park called Stony Brook State Park.  The guests and the wedding party hiked along a rambling river to a water fall for the ceremony.

It was probably the most beautiful wedding I have ever been too.

I need to catch up on my garden (no rain while we were gone and it looks pretty sad :-( ).  I need to do a weeks worth of travel laundry.  I need to grocery shop. 

So I will be back in a couple of days after I catch up.

Welcome Home,


  1. Sounds like a beautiful road trip, Penny. The wedding souns wonderful!!

  2. It sounds like an original and beautiful wedding! I'm happy the weather was nice!

    We have been having tons of storms and rain. Our power has gone out twice. I need some sun!


  3. Stony Brook is beautiful and less then an hour from ME !

    Glad you had a good time !


  4. How fun and a wedding too! That is such a pretty spot, nature feels kind of like a Holy place doesn't it? More pic's please! :D

  5. How beautiful! I love how weddings are becoming more personalized and less by the book. I think it gives more meaning and a special feeling to the day. Have fun catching up with your garden and being back home:>)

  6. Penny....Sounds like a very unique wedding! I love outdoor weddings! See ya when you catch up from your trip!~Hugs, Patti

  7. What a lovely spot for a wedding.
    I have to confess, that when I read your title I thought 'A road trip? I hope she's put down all that mulch!'

  8. Coming home is HARD work, isn't it? We got home 2 weeks ago, and I'm still able to relax in the evenings, so I guess it worked! Enjoy, and hurry back to us!

  9. Hi Penny, It sounds like you both had a wonderful time with beautiful views . . . can't wait to see the pics of the wedding. Sandy:O)

  10. Glad you had a wonderful trip. I love weddings, and this one sounds beautiful! Can't wait to hear more about it. Enjoy your weekend catching up. Love & blessings from NC!

  11. I like outdoor weddings, this one must have been beautiful.

    Don't work too hard!


  12. The wedding must have been spectacular in such a gorgeous setting.

    Welcome home!

  13. I bet it was beautiful, I love outside weddings.

    Hope your garden survives!


  14. What a wonderful reason to be away and I want to read more about this wedding. It sounds delightful.

  15. Hello there girlfriend! Sounds like you've been busy and had a nice trip! We are still trying to get settled in, too. Talk to you soon! Let's get together! ♥

  16. Hi Penny,

    What a lovely place for a wedding. Glad to hear that you had a fun trip. Your garden is looking wonderful and I hope it did not get too dry while you were away. A little water perks up most anything.
    Have a lovely weekend.

  17. Do you have wedding pics to share. Sounds like a beautiful spot of a wedding...I love the mountains. Wish I was up to hiking! One of these days and hope it will not be long! Yes, I did have a second surgery. Hopefully this is going to take care of my foot and no more!

  18. What a creative bride and groom. I love the idea of a wedding out in a natural setting. Hope we get to see some photos.
    Thanks for stopping by the Mad Tea Party! ~ Sarah

  19. Glad it was a great trip and beautiful wedding! Would have been nice if your fairy godmother (or some strong guy) had come by and emptied all those bags of mulch while you were away!!!
    No rain here either and it was 105 on Thurs. Every day so hot, I can't stand it. We're heading North this coming week - New England and Canada it just has to be cooler there!

    Hugs - Mary

  20. Welcome Home Penny! I can't wait to see some wedding pictures-the setting of the wedding looked beautiful!

  21. Hi Penny, your road trip and wedding sounds great. There is nothing more romantic to make one smile, than a beautiful wedding. Love the photo of the stream. How sad that your battery died. It HAS happened to me and I am sure, countless others.

    I laughed at your 34 bags of mulch. I can definitely relate to that. Your yard is looking gorgeous. Lots of mulch, less weeds. The bonus for all the hard work.
    Hugs, Jeanne
