One thing I’ve always been annoyed by is when people make a face when they hear I’m from New Jersey. I know they’re trying to be funny, but it’s not exactly a creative joke (which is also why I roll my eyes at most “that’s what she said” attempts). The truth is, New Jersey is beautiful – especially where I grew up in Cape May County.
Pompeii is having a moment. There was of course, my family’s visit to Pompeii, Italy this past summer. There is the amazing Bastille song that I haven’t been able to get out of my head for months (not a complaint). There is a Pompeii movie in theaters now and one available on NetFlix. And, there is an exhibit at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia with relics on loan from the Naples National Archaeological Museum in Naples, Italy.
