Amidst the shock of the newness and a degree of information/sensory overload I have felt pretty disconnected from all of friends and family back in the South. So, this blog is mostly for my friends and family who aren't in Philly, to help them feel connected to my life through picture sharing and story telling. And for myself, to help me sort through all the of the experiences and things that I see and do and to feel as though my family isn't quite so far away. I am sure that most of my posts will be positive, however, in the event that I really feel like railing my boss at work (or not) or the neighborhood animals that keep stealing my strawberries, please just bear with me...don't call PETA when I threaten to buy a BB gun to protect my crops. I am sure the vengeance will subside (eventually).
That being said, I have been trying really hard to come up with something really cool to write my first blog about....but after weeks and weeks of deliberation I still have nothing! I have been trying to keep photographic records of all the things I do and see north of the Mason-Dixon line and so far I have a lot photos to share...some cool, some not as cool. I have come to the conclusion that regardless of whether or not I have anything profound to say, it would be a really cool to just barf a post of photos. I mean, who doesn't prefer picture books over text books. Here goes nothing!......
The Biggest Blizzard Ever!!
This was definitely the most snow I've ever seen (and I think it was the most snow that anybody up here has seen over the course of the winter!)
So far my mom, sister and mamaw were the first to come visit in less than a month after I moved up here. My dad came in mid-March right after the blizzards hit. We had a lot of fun exploring the city and eating way too many cheese steaks! I love them!...my family of course, then cheese steaks!
Well that's enough for one blog...I know I will have more to post soon!
