Sara's Visiting


"Do they make Philadelphia Cream Cheese in Philadelphia?"
-My Long Time Friend Sara

I have been very lucky to have so many guests come to Philadelphia. I have only lived here for two months and I have already had five visitors to our home. I guess we are missed. I know that I am missing my friends and family so it makes this transition so much easier.

My friend, Sara, will be visiting this Thursday along with her husband Scott. I am thrilled. I have taken the entire weekend off to spend as much time with them as possible. Sara has been a great friend through this move. She calls me about every other day, if not everyday. She makes it seem like not a week has passed since I saw her last.

We will be doing the Philadelphia Special...my version of Philadelphia, which is quite limited but I am going to do some reading up this week to do even more when they are here. An addition to the Philadelphia Special, we will be going into New York City on Saturday to take in some sights.

See...this is something that is fantastic about living here. I can just go to New York for the day. In the midwest driving two hours for a day trip is nothing, but out here, people tend to think that is a long trip. I will take some pictures and post a few when we return.

That is so cool you can just go to NYC. How wild is that! You'll have to check out the coast. I bet it is lovely. I was born in NJ -- just outside of NY.

I am also envious of your ability to go to NYC. I was watching a special on Broadway (Leonard Bernstein to be exact), and now I have a desperate urge to visit the city. :) Have fun this weekend!

We are so anxious come out to visit you. We are going to do so many exciting things that you will be blogging for days about it. See ya soon!

i cried a little in my heart when you said NYC... sometime when you are there, please go to the Original Espresso Bar on Christopher Street and take in some second-hand smoke and think of me...

Sara, I trust that you have learned from our experience and will not make Sara and Scott have a cheese steak with cheese whiz, but rather with provolone or some other yummy cheese that is not so, what's the word? Slimy? Rich?

Reddog, you will have an awesome time. I just wish I could've been there more than a day!
