December is a big month for this blog. Every December, I celebrate a Her Philly birthday, but this year, it’s a big one: Five. Years. Five years of sharing my love for this city, and getting so much of it back from all of you, who love it just as much. Five years of adventures and experiences and friendships formed and dates documented. In all the ways I can’t believe it’s been five years, at the same time, it feels like it’s always been a part of me.
March was a busy month! Between birthdays, reunions and weekend trips . . . sprinkled in with some amazing opportunities, I had a full schedule, and I absolutely loved it! Check out some of the highlights . . .
Tara & I about to experience the #WesterosVIP event // My favorite Game of Thrones (p)imp, Tyrion Lannister
With Carling & Ashley at the Harlem Globetrotters game // There is not much better than crab fries & cheese
One of my favorite days of the year – free Rita’s water ice // And favorite day of the year Part 2 . . .
Celebrating Amy’s birthday @ Sons of Essex in NYC // My obsession with kale (topped w/ bacon) grows daily
Coming from a Philly pizza enthusiast, SliCE has my fav pizza presentation // Our pretty city from a roof deck
Some thrift store finds at my favorite shop in South Jersey // Finally got to try a burger at Rouge!
If you’re craving some more Her Philly Instagram action, follow me! Some of these photos came from my personal account and I just really wanted to share . . . are you feeling special yet? xx
What was your favorite moment of March? (This is a judgement free zone, it’s OK if you say Rita’s or Shamrock Shakes . . . )
January. Was. BUSY! Between Restaurant Week, trips back to my parents’ house, friend visits and, of course, work, I’ve been swamped! February is already going wonderfully with an awesome Philly Style Blogger event (more on that later!), a Joe Flacco Super Bowl win, and packing for my upcoming trip to Disney World!
A little slice of Philly heaven: the Anthropologie sale room // Making a quick visit to WCU to see Ellie!
Broccoli, cous cous, tofu & soy sauce nommy lunch // Celebrating the DOB of my college roomie Ashley
One of many margaritas at El Vez during Restaurant Week // Taking some model shots of my co-worker Tara
Our office version of “Wing Bowl” … just yum. // Jordan & the cutest baby in the city of Philadelphia, Caroline
How was your first month of 2013? xx
I always love Philadelphia during the winter. Something about bundling up to get some fresh air and still being able to walk everywhere you need to go has always appealed to me. This month, despite some minor sickness(es), has been a good one – filled with friends, family & celebrating. Here is a peek at my December:
Gorgeous fresh “get well soon flowers” from the BF // My favorite Philadelphia street ever (do you recognize it?)
Macy’s Christmas Light Show // The yummiest apple pie & vanilla bean ice cream at Little Pete’s
Looking festive with my family on Christmas Eve // Chopsticks & champagne at Sampan on New Year’s Eve
How was your December? Hope everyone had a lovely New Year’s Eve, and cheers to 2013!
