Life Lately

DSC_2243Brunch at the famed Honey’s with friends and their babe. Despite it’s Food Network fame, I’ve been twice and think it’s way over-hyped. But that’s another story for another day. The plus side is that they were VERY accommodating to a large stroller and an infant. 

DSC_2263 DSC_2262 DSC_2261 DSC_2260 DSC_2259Photos from the world’s best book club. Seriously, I am part of the very best book club that has ever existed. A hodge-podge of beautiful, brilliant women from different worlds collide for laughter and meaningful conversations. This time around we read The New Jim Crow. The author was a little ranty, the content was less non-fiction novel and more academic textbook, BUT it’s thought-provoking and worthwhile to read (or at least skim). Those of you watching Orange is the New Black would appreciate it.


I went to Atlanta for a work trip. It was nice to reconnect with old colleagues, but even nicer to spend time with old friends. While downtown Atlanta has nothing on Philadelphia, I miss the charm of Atlanta’s neighborhoods a lot. This was the view from my hotel room. Views of CNN, the Georgia Dome, and the newly installed ferris wheel. DSC_2274 DSC_2273 DSC_2267 DSC_2264And then I got to come home to my apartment and these views. I love our neighborhood so much. Our private roof deck makes it even better. And the sunsets have been out-of-this-world-beautiful lately.

Life has been busy but oh, so, good. 





Weekend recap

ImageImageImageImageImageImage1 and 2: Running along the Schuylkill River trail; 3. Friday evening’s sunset; 4-6. Baseball game at Citizens Bank Park.

Saturday the husband (pseudo) surprised me with a day-trip to Cape May (a beach long the Jersey shore). Imagine old Victorian houses converted to B&Bs, everyone using bikes to get around, an uncrowded beach, and delicious seafood. I’ll do the full recap tomorrow, but in the meantime, I’ll leave you with this instagram photo:Imagexoxo,
