There’s nothing quite like going for a woodland stroll in the woods. It feels and looks so magical! Last weekend, I visited a wonderful, small, western New Jersey town that gets all decorated for Christmas. There’s an adorable main street lined with small shops and cafes and lots of nearby farms perfect for visiting for some homemade apple cider and live Christmas decor (pine wreaths, anyone!?). After spending the day wandering the cute little shops and sipping coffee and cider, I decided it was time to see what walking paths and parks were nearby. Lo and behold, the Cooper Mill was just down the road.
The Cooper Mill was built in 1826 and is on the National Historic Register. During the warmer months, there are tours and events at the mill. On this particular day, it was snowing, the water in the mil had begun to freeze over, and it was extremely picturesque.
