Black and White Wednesday - Fishing Hole

the long road

Black and White Wednesday is run by Lisa over at
The Long Road to China.

This peaceful little lake can be found at Wharton Brook State Park in Wallingford, CT. This park is all about the fishing, picnicing, and camping. It was originally a rest stop for travelers who wanted to take a break from driving. There used to be a huge RV parking area, with gas lines so they could camp out for a few days. After the highway department made rest stops, they turned this area into a park to preserve the land.

Time for another edition of Whatcha Say Wednesday, which is run by Stash Mama! Head on over to her blog to grab the questions and link up.

1. What physical quality do you look for in a spouse or your spouse has! Blue eyes! I have to say, the past 3 guys I dated before my fiance all had blue eyes. Jon has the most gorgeous eyes I have ever seen.

2. What state in the US would you live in if you had to live there for the rest of your life? Honestly, almost any state. The only state that I would never live in is New Jersey. It smells. (Sorry to the Jersey girls out there. I don't have beef with you, just with your state.)

3. What do you do? (job title, SAHM, student, spill!) I work at a college, in the Admissions office. I love what I do! This is my fourth year working for this school, and I am finally working full-time. I truly appreciate having a decent paycheck and benefits. This job is perfect for me at this point in my life!

Bonus! Are eyebrows considered facial hair? Nah. Facial hair, to me, is whatever grows around your mouth and on your cheeks. Basically limited to beards and mustaches.

BLOG UPDATES: I have some exciting announcements to make, some pretty pictures to post, and some fun stuff to offer to you, my loyal readers! Make sure you stick around, and tell your friends to come over, too, because the next couple of months look to be pretty exciting. Trust me, you don't want to miss any of this!

I love the first photo too, it looks great in black and white and looks a wonderful place to sit.

Adore the way the water ripples and the patterns it makes. Both are fantastic.
