City of Brotherly Love

I'm in Philly on business for a few days and was working 12+ hour days in the lead up to my trip, which is why the blog has been lacking a bit. But never fear, I think I am in for the business trip of my life (is that an oxymoron?) and am having a blast! Diplomacy, Brits, Scots, white tie, police, history, politics...

One of the strange parts of being here is exploring my adopted hometown as an adult. The layout of the city makes much more sense having now walked all over town. The city is no longer the semi scary place we would drive through to get to the Liberty Bell. It's affordable, livable and hip...certainly cleaner than NYC! It's also fun to try some great Philly restaurants, such as Continental Midtown, tonight's restaurant of choice. It's hipster fusion comfort food...at the chairs are either car seats or swings...great fun!

More in a few days. Have a great weekend!

15 years ago when we moved to PA from MI we had a steady stream of family and friends visiting us. On the top of everyone's "to do" list was a visit to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Our family joke when we knew visitors were coming was, Oh no, NOT the Liberty Bell again!!!"
I hope your business trip included a visit to the Liberty Bell!!!
Can't wait to talk to you!
Love ya, Mom oxoxo
