I can't believe that I haven't posted since almost Thanksgiving! Don't give up on me. This past weekend Justin and I got to go to Philadelphia (I had to attend a conference for work and I asked him to tag along). While we were there, we decided to stay an extra day and play around in the city. I've been up the east coast into New York and the surrounding area and Justin has never been anywhere northeast. I was worried that we wouldn't really like it b/c I hated New York when I visited. We really had a great time though... Philly is less hustle and bustle than NY and there were so many historic sights- the Liberty Bell, the original Bill of Rights, the building where they held the first Continental Congress. It left us a little awestruck to know that we were standing in the room the Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, etc. stood when pour nation was first beginning. The architecture was beautiful as well! We also had to go to South Philly and have a cheesesteak... actually we had 3 while we were there. If you ever go to Philly- go to Jim's- it was definitely our favorite! I'll add pictures later...
