Then we went to Princeton, NJ for a tournament for my son....it was a HUGE tournament with hundreds of teams but I was able to carve out a little time early one morning (on a Starbucks search) to take a few pics of lovely Princeton, both the University and charming town. The architecture is just jaw droppingly beautiful, most of the older original buildings are done in a Gothic Revival style with intricate stone work, incredible limestone detailing, stained glass windows that are a work of art and thick gorgeous slate roofs. I was in heaven! I guess intellectual minds do better in beautiful surroundings:) So it was a fun weekend.....busy, exhausting and we even got a monsoon thrown into the mix. We had rain, the likes of which I have never seen and then within two hours the sun was out.....crazy weather!
Anyway here's a little peak at some of the highlights of my weekend courtesy of my iPhone......

The pretty theater building
I loved the intricate detailing on this magnificent limestone opening
Idylllic Nassau St.....the "main drag"
Spotted this adorable corner bakery.....
My baguette radar was on high alert :)

What do they say about the pearly gates............:)
Loooove the old slate roof, magnificent!
Even the darling Ralph Lauren just oozed understated charm
Adore the flowerboxes!
The beautiful Shea rowing center...so beautifully set.
It was a hazy morning but so calm and serene......
And then the sun came out full force!
There was a beautiful array of flowers, and so much more!
There it is again.....
Just call me obsessed!
Back at the lacrosse fields and back to reality!!!!!
And then back at home.......
The Belgian block driveway project nearly done
Loved coming home to my beautiful white hydrangea trees, so in love with them:)
The hydrangea trees which will soon be put into their planters
Speaking of flowers..my beautiful white azaela topiary is coming back to life, put it in the powder room, hasn't flowered yet but it will soon!
The beautiful blue and white antiqued large bowl from my shop holds a new cutting of hydrangeas from the yard
And pretty hydrangeas cut from the yard and placed in my blue and white bowl
And made this pretty cheese and fruit platter served on the bread boards from my shop the other night before we left
So that's a wrap up. Hope you enjoyed. Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing Sunday!
