Philadelphia Photo Tour & Giveaway Winner

Sometimes you get a chance to see a place from the outside looking in and you realize how special that place really is.  We often take the things around us for granted.  I spent 32 years of my life living in Philadelphia and have only recently come to appreciate so many things the city has to offer. Family, friends and food aside I want to share with you some photos I took as an outsider looking in.

  1. These are great photos! My mom works in Philadelphia and I will direct her to your blog! Happy 4th!

  2. I love Philadelphia and we have really gotten familiar with the City since my daughter goes to college in nearby Swarthmore. Your photos are lovely and make me anxious to visit soon! I am so excited about the chop keeper too! Thank you!!!

  3. I haven't been back to Philly since 1995. Still looks as beautiful as ever. You are so right one does take things for granted. I miss the Italian markets most of all!

  4. I want to go to Philly so bad! I want a cheese steak! Sorry I just posted on your giveaway post - I guess I can't read very well tonight.

  5. I've only been to Philly once, and it was so short and I didn't get to explore the city at all. This makes me really want to go!!

  6. I've never spent any time in Philadelphia. And I'd love to.
    Congrats to Jen!

  7. Oh sweet Philly! I love this city. Ryan and I lived there for a few months, and we had such a good time. Thank you for sharing your sweet self with me today. I hope you have a fabulous end to your week. Take care, my friend!
