AMEN, SISTER! Alissa is from a beautiful part of New Jersey, very close to the town where I now live. I am a Jersey girl, you all know that, but before I met my husband 19 years ago, I did not know this part of the state existed. I used to get twitchy when I couldn't see the NYC skyline. These days, it's rare I see an airplane in the sky, and when I do it's a biplane circling a hot air balloon. Trust me when I tell you, there is a reason New Jersey is called the Garden State, and my town is proof.
Even though this is the FEROCITY SUMMER ROAD TRIP TOUR, and blog hosts were asked to share our road trip experiences, I want to share some of my favorite pictures from our home, Alissa's and mine, "THE OTHER NEW JERSEY."
|Taken from my driveway on 5/6/12|
|View from a high point in town. No oil refineries! No highway! No shopping mall!|
|Alas, not my pond, but so peaceful!|
So, even though there are great parts of the state that share some land with the Garden State Parkway, and the best Italian bread you'll ever find, there are also very rural parts of New Jersey...the "Other New Jersey" that Alissa and I are so proud of. If this is the part of NJ that FEROCITY SUMMER readers will experience, we're all in for a treat!

Many thanks to Alissa Grosso for coming to Alison's Book Marks today. My apologies for the technical difficulties - but I just had to make that hot air balloon shot work!
