I've been a bad blogger for the past few months. But I know you'll forgive me, sweet readers, because you understand that moving across the country takes a lot out of a girl! Happily I am all tucked into my new apartment in Rittenhouse Square. The art has been hung, the dresses crammed into various closets, the shoes spread out all over the damn place. I even found a strawberry tea kettle that makes me unreasonably happy and puts every other tea kettle on earth to shame.
I live right in the center of things here in Philadelphia and so far I absolutely love it, especially my close proximity to so many great restaurants. I haven't had a cheesesteak just yet (gasp!) but I've had a number of excellent burgers (Village Whiskey is currently #1) and found the speakeasy bar of my dreams (Farmer's Cabinet). I even had my first Philly karaoke night and it wasn't half bad! People keep asking me how I like living here so far and my answer is always easy: I like it lots! Having my dream job certainly makes things that much more glittery and wonderful, but the city itself has grown on me. I've even had a few pleasant experiences with complete strangers that made me a believer in the whole "City of Brotherly Love" thing. I do miss San Francisco and all the people in it but I am beyond happy to be here. Hopefully from now on I will be a bit better about documenting my adventures on the east coast!
The amazing green couch is from Urban Outfitters and is even prettier in person. Oh, and it folds out into a bed!
Treats for my housewarming party.
Donut and a zig zag rug (from Urban Outfitters).
My wall o' art is coming together thanks to a massive photo of Gene Wilder and 1950's ice cream prints from the Brimfield flea market.
