I grew up living in Middlesex Borough that is located in Middlesex County. When I moved out of my Dad's house, my husband and I got our first apartment in South Brunswick. We got engaged, got married and started looking for a house. We settled in Mercer County only a year ago and we love it. We live in the most beautiful area and we like exploring other towns near us too. We had our wedding anniversary dinner at Carlucci's Waterfront in Mount Laurel and it was beautiful. We definitely plan on exploring it more.  can totally understand why Mount Laurel earned the 16th spot on Money magazine's 50 Best Places to Live.
