It’s so nice to be home from Philadelphia! Don’t get me wrong, I loved visiting such an influential city to our Country’s history but it was nice to go and even more nice to be home.
Philly provided history, architecture, cheesesteaks and memorable moments all with my Johnson parents and Kristin. We had so much fun taking pictures of her dad at the top of the steps of the museum a la Rocky, poking around Independence Hall & the Liberty Bell, her mom having 3 right hand gloves but no left-handed ones, the Holy Trinity Church (where O Little Town of Bethlehem was written and boasts 5 Tiffany’s stained glass) in addition to other tidbits that are unique to just us. We ate at Pat’s and Geno’s (and survey says Geno’s wins), The Capital Grille (which was top 5 best dinners of my life and if they have it, get the mint ice cream), at the City Tavern (which is where the Continental Congress Banquet was) and I had lots of eggs and coffee in the mornings (I was in heaven). We took pictures, laughed and learned a lot. Kristin and I found this fun little jazz place that we just happened to stumble in and, like I read on FourSquare, if Will’s not working – just leave. He was super fun and sat with Kristin and I even when he was done working and had a chat.
All that being said, the cold wasn’t as cold as I thought it’d be, the wind was worse than expected and the snow was beautiful and ugly but I think that’s the way all things in life are. I went, I’ve come home and I’m happy to be in dresses without coats, scarves and gloves. It’s hard to feel cute with all of those layers! Ah, Southern comfort in Southern California… I’m so happy to be back in our warm weather!
