Wordless Wednesday… Sort Of (Philadelphia Edition)

I moved to Philly when I was 23, and stayed there until I was 31.  Lately I’ve been feeling terribly homesick for the city, so I dug up a few photos from my last trip home.

 

doorway

This is the doorway to my old apartment on South Street.  I used to think it was so cool to have this as an entrance.

 

hotdogs

I would have starved to death three times over in my 20’s if I didn’t have this hot dog cart on the corner to go to with my scrounged change.

 

subway

I really did like riding the subway.  That blue line?  That’s the El.  It was my route for a year.

 

java

I used to spend hours at this coffee shop.  Some of my best blogging happened there.

Which reminds me:  Anybody reading this blog thinking of attending Bloggy Boot Camp in Philly?  I’ve been considering going.  Any excuse to spend a couple days eating cheesesteaks and good bagels.

Girl that doorway has character to spare! Super cool. I've never been to Philly but I want to one of these days. Now I've got a recommendation for a good coffee place :)

Philly is one of my favorite towns - my bf grew up there and I have lots of friends there - I try to get back as often as I can. Mmmmm...cheesesteaks....
btw: I woke up to "Philadelphia Freedom" by Elton John(one of my fav songs) this morning when the alarm when off.

VERY COOL! Super duper hip indeed. I've never been to Philly, but obviously I need to put it on the list.
