3 cheers for finally finding my camera cord, and downloading pictures from my trip to Philly!
Hip hip, hoooo....ok, you know the rest.
So if you are new to my blog, John (my hubs) and I are apart for the summer. He is doing a summer internship in PA, while I am holding down the fort here in NC. I got to visit him 2 weeks ago, and stayed for 10 days -- it was bliss. I had missed him terribly and as soon as I saw him waiting for me at the train station, all was right in the world. I truly am incomplete when he is not around.
Ok, enough mushy, gushy.....
Join me in re-living our amazing time exploring Philly, and eating our weight in cheese-steaks, italian food, and ice cream. Bye-bye diet....whooops!
WARNING: major picture overload :)
|packed and ready to go!|
|At the train station - I LOVED riding the train..I'm weirdly obsessed with public transportation.|
|Yay! Night 1 dinner w/ the hubs!|
Lunch the next day - we had the most AMAZING pizza :)
And yes, that is just mine. I may or may not have finished it by myself...
While John was at work, I went and explored Valley Forge National Park - it was so amazing to step foot into the same cabins that were occupied by Gen. George Washington and his troops during the Revolutionary War - almost 250 years ago!
Dinner at Alba that night :)
The next day -checking into our adorable B&B for the weekend - in downtown Philly
