"Sweater Weather" by The Neighbourhood
Fitting for this cold weather we are having!
We just had our apartment cleaned so it seemed like a good time to take some photos! It is a huge place with a ton of natural light in a great location. I love how the navy and yellow combination came out in my bedroom, but taking these photos made me realize I really need to get some artwork up on my very empty walls!
I am officially a resident of Philadelphia! I’ve been here for a week and am slowly getting settled into the neighborhood and my apartment. I was lucky enough to have my parents here helping me move in. They also went to Penn so it was quite the walk down memory lane for them. We went to a restaurant called Victor’s Cafe where they had eaten thirty years ago and found the buildings where they both lived.
I’m still waiting for a couple pieces of furniture, but my bedroom is mostly set up. The living room and dining room are still a work in progress, but I will post lots of pictures when everything is ready! I’m living in a very large three bedroom, which I really think I’m going to enjoy. There are so many great bars and restaurants in the area and we’re only two blocks from Rittenhouse Square.
Can’t believe my six week vacation is over and I start school tomorrow. How has the time passed this quickly??
Given that I am in the process of moving from Dallas to Philadelphia and am no longer “Going South,” I think I need a new blog title…suggestions welcome.
Our week in Italy was a wonderful getaway for my whole family. It managed to be relaxing, adventure filled, indulgent, exhausting and a bit magical at the same time. We spent two nights a piece in Lake Como, Verona, Levanto (gateway to the Cinque Terre) and Milan, which was a very eclectic list of destinations. Thanks to my dad’s skills driving a pick up truck when he was seventeen, we managed to navigate between places in a manual SUV with only minimal difficulty. First was the lake, then an old city, then the beach and lastly a more modern city. I would recommend this itinerary to anyone looking for a good mix of relaxation and sight-seeing. More photos to come (I took 700 total and could fill a whole post with just food pictures), but here are some of the beautiful views we took in during the week.
The Cinque Terre. So many more great pictures from Italy to share when I get back.
