Winter is in full force here in NJ--and my fiance and I have managed a few days off together for the first time since last summer. But what does one do when it's freezing cold and there's snow everywhere?
We went on a fun little day trip yesterday, and I think the pictures are worth sharing! First, we went to a New Jersey diner that we hadn't ever been to before (we're slowly but surely visiting new diners one by one).
It was adorable! Here's a little picture:
Then, with our bellies full and warm, we headed further south, all the way down to New Hope, Pennsylvania. We drove past beautiful scenes of snow-covered farm houses, frozen tractors, and fields turned perfect white under a gray sky.
Then, we hopped an antique train (how cute is this?). It was like stepping into a different time!
Inside the car felt like something out of a movie! The train ride wasn't to anywhere. In fact, it went forward for about half an hour, then it went back.
All this atmosphere...it's enough to make a writer's imagination go wild! Nothing inspires me to write more than a quiet, contemplative day spent with a loved one!
But these days, I have to admit, I'm not doing too too much actual writing. You see, my new book, Slow Dancing on Price Pier, comes out in three short months! Eek!
Two wonderful authors, Karen White and Jane Porter, were kind enough to give me absolutely glowing blurbs for this book! And I'm so pleased with the cover art. Here it is!
So here's the deal: Leave me a comment about what you think of my cover art or my trip, and I'll stop back tomorrow and pick one person to win a "surprise" gift from me! The winner will be announced in the comments section.
Thanks for reading!
Wishing you many happy and safe travels here in the deepest days of winter!
