My husband grew up just south of the city of Philly, along the Delaware/Pennsylvania border. Despite having known him for years, and being married to him for over a year now, I had never made it into the actual city of Philly!
After making a stink about it, both my Brother in Law and my Father in Law took the opportunity to take me to Philly so I could say I had been there!
Anybody who knows me knows I'm a history buff, and I love nothing more than to immerse myself in things from long ago. Philadelphia has a special place in my heart because it's the American center of Quakerism, my worship style of choice.
I don't feel like I really got to know Philly but it was a great little taste of a city that so perfectly blends the old and new!
I'm sure I'll be back...
