Philly, you are the best city of all the cities. In honor of your loveliness, I’ve teamed up with four other fab Philly lady bloggers to bring our readers the ultimate list of all the things you must do, see, eat, drink, and visit in our fair city. A Philly bucket list, if you will, filled with unique things to make you say “hmmm that sounds interesting,” and more obvious things to make you go, “duh! Why have I not done that yet?” Below you’ll get my contribution to the list, and when you’re done, click over to the rest of the list on each blog. Here goes!
My dear Little Pete’s (219 South 17th Street), how I love thee. We were introduced several years ago, when times were different, but you have remained constant. You’re always there, 24/7, when it’s early and I can’t seem to get out of bed or make myself an omelet quite like you do, or when it’s late, and I need something fried and delicious served to me in under 10 minutes after a long night of drinking.
But oh . . . the best times are right around the corner, don’t think I forgot about them. The best times when it’s around 10 – 11 am, super cold out, on a Saturday, when I need the weekend more than ever. And a coffee. And guaranteed good food no matter what. That’s when you’re the best.
I show you off to all of my friends, and they all love you just as much as me. I think even if they didn’t, they would tell me they did, because they know how attached I am to you.
It makes me smile that I can get to you in a 10 minute walk, no driving to South Philly, or even Jersey for that matter, required. Sure, I have to wait for you sometimes, but that just means you’re worth it. I think if I ever had to move away from you, separation anxiety would ensue. In my two and a half years in this city, you’ve proved yourself to be irreplaceable.
I’d like to end with a very special quote I found that truly sums up our relationship: “Sometimes, someone comes into your life, so unexpectedly, takes your heart by surprise, and changes your life forever.” There has never been a truer statement. Love ya, Peter.
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!
